Heres a suggestion for a rewrite...
"We got it wrong, we could have made the two phone calls or sent two emails to verify the endorsements but we chose not to."
That copy would read a lot more honest than this column trying to justify it.

I really enjoyed this article and the fact it was balanced, gave a rundown of both candidates highs and lows in a unbiased fashion. I will probably end up voting for Lois again but like the fact that this article was fair to both of the candidates instead of painting one side with horns and eating small children and puppies.

No mention of Noozhawk seems to be a intentional oversight after all they just co sponsored a congressional debate with KEYT , and Edhat seems to have asked for funds (subscribers) for the past several years seems to happen once a year, neglecting to mention the SBView seems totally fair since no one would mistake them for journalism.
Interesting about Josh Molina since the take on him when he worked at the Sound was that he was essentially writing for Das anyways.

I completely support Marriage Equality, there is no veiled homophobia in saying I think they should have been forced out. I won't support Chick Fil A due to their stance and support a boycott, but I am totally against attacks on free speech from a government agency appointed or otherwise. The board members in their private lives have a right to say or do whatever they choose, acting as a representative of the city in a official capacity with a narrow scope they don't have the right in that position to punish someone for exercising that right.
I would note that editorial boards of major papers which are viewed as liberal in their positions agree with me and castigated public officials who took this type of stance/action. I'm comfortable in supporting equal rights for my fellow citizens regardless of sexual orientation and supporting free speech for all. You on the other hand would say that is a homophobic position...

Lars the President was using the same language as Mr Cathy for quite a while so did that mean everyone who donated to him when he ran for office the 1st time was against equality?

I echo Ken's Bravo on the Mayors statement and also have to add Ramey's comment makes a lot of sense as well.

I support Equality in Marriage, I also support Freedom of Speech the actions of the ABR members were wrong. The political statements of management do not have anything to do with land use decisions. If the members can not perform the limited scope of their duties they should resign.
The council should take some type of official action against the board also, their actions may have exposed the city to some liability and a message needs to be sent that is not acceptable.

Every time I hear the words "stakeholder" "vision quest" "facilitated" and "Charrette" I want to throw up, its terms used by the bureaucracy to justify endless meetings that are held merely to come to a predetermined ending. The only thing that would have made this notice more inviting was if they said a modified Robert's Rules of Order will be available in a handout form and we will integrate lessons learned from Occupys General Assembly. I blame ULI and Hurricane Katrina for bringing Charrette back as a popular term when they started to throw it around after the storm during the Rebuild New Orleans town halls.
