Editing comments

by jhwygirl

Call it what you will, but as promised, I have and will continue to edit comments that use personal attacks such as name-calling. They add nothing and beget further name calling.

I let one go the other day – bothered me – and it occurred again tonight, by someone else.

Neither added substance. Both comments are edited.

Flame away as you desire – at me. I’ve even given everyone an easy place to do it.

Chief Justice John Roberts will be speaking at UM tomorrow, 2 p.m., as part of its School of Law lecture series. The lecture is free and open to the public.

In anticipation of an overflow audience, UM will also open the Music Recital Hall.

Both Montana Public Radio and Yellowstone Public Radio will broadcast live. They are also doing a rebroadcast at 7 p.m.

Both stations do web broadcasting as well – good news for those who have to work.

It’s a shame the Missoulian doesn’t have this story up on its website like both the Billings Gazette and the Great Falls Tribune do.  But I’m sure they will add it after reading this.

Support public radio. Donate to MPR. Donate to YPR.

Our man, Denver Henderson, may have gone down to defeat in the City Council primary last night, but there is an upside to these election results and it’s all in the numbers.

Ward 4

Jerry Ballas 748

Lyn Hellegaard 584

Denver Henderson 479

Alan Ault 403

Joseph Gorsh 128

Whether you voted for Denver, Lyn, Alan or Joseph, that’s 1,594 votes against Jerry Ballas. Clearly there’s some dissatisfaction with Councilman Ballas in Ward Four. Come November, how many voters who chose one of the four will vote for Lyn? How many will hold their noses and vote for Ballas? And how many will just write in Denver Henderson on the ballot?

The results are in:

Ward 1: Jason Wiener: 63%; Justin Armintrout: 34%
Ward 2: Don Nicholson*: 48%; Pam Walzer: 37%; Dave Huerta: 15%
Ward 3: Stacy Rye*: 55%; Doug Harrison: 45%
Ward 4: Jerry Ballas*: 32%; Lyn Hellegaard: 25%; Denver Henderson: 20%; Alan Ault: 17%; Joe Gorsh: 6%
Ward 5: Renee Mitchell: 57%; Christine Prescott: 42%
Ward 6: Ed Childers*: 44%; Lewie Shcneller: 31%; Martin Guthrie: 24%
* Incumbent

Unfortunately Denver Henderson missed the cut by a hundred votes or so in the Ward 4 primary, leaving Ward 4 with Hellegaard and Ballas for the general election. Don’t blame me, folks. I supported Denver.
