Re: “The Palin Ultimatum

The white sheets aren't buried too far back in the linen closets of far too many.

Re: “The Palin Ultimatum

I'm not sure I understand the previous comment, specifically the opening, qualifying prepositional phrase, "In a nation that elected Barack Obama..."

Re: “A contrarian view of 'Extreme Makeover'

I'm very sympathetic to the fact that living across the street from the Extreme Makeover home would be aggravating and inconvenient for several weeks. And I do believe the show producers should have been sensitive to crowd control, neighbors and neighboring property. However, this woman reminds me of the old tv character who spent all day peering out from behind her curtains, spying on and complaining about the neighbors. "Dashing" out to the street because there's a toilet waiting for pickup during the remodeling and the fact that the security guard was all too familiar with this woman lead me to think she was a pain in the backside from day one of the project. (Were all neighbors given complimentary stays at a hotel or was this particular woman offered the hotel in an attempt to appease her complaints?) I shouldn't think a person would move to the historic district if they don't like activity and tourists. Just as you don't move to busy Abercorn Street "for a simpler and more subdued way of life." There are plenty of suburbs and rural areas that offer that nature of ambiance. The house dwarfs the neighborhood? I live in a similar area that has a charming assortment of houses--of many sizes and colors. Yes, I can find any number of homes in Savannah with color schemes I don't care for, but that doesn't make me the arbiter of good taste. Commendably, the show and community reached out to help a family in need. But I certainly don't read anything "charitable or kind" in this woman's letter. Did she once mention concern for the family? I'd be leery of the false sincerity and contents of any foodstuffs this woman brought to her neighbors. And can someone please explain to me what a "beautiful and somber" house is? The only thing I can think of is a mausoleum.
