  • Hello Chris,
    I don't understand what you mean about the separation between church and state and how it would apply to free journalism. Perhaps I'm coming at this from a different angle and I'm not aware of what the end-of-the-year wrap by the auto dealer had, but the Victoria Advocate isn't a state-run newspaper or entity funded by taxpayers.
    I always believed that separation of church and state originally meant that our founders wanted to prevent the state government from starting a state church, like they escaped in England and Holland. Free churches were important to the settlers of America.  We certainly see a reverse and change of that meaning lately. 
    Can you 'splain it to me before I jump to more conclusions? Thanks.

  • For what you have to work with, y'all do a pretty good job. You can't please everyone all of the time, but you can please some people some of the time.

  • "Avoid conflicts of interest, real or percieved".......that's gonna be a toughy as perception is in the eye of the beholder.  There are thousands of "eyes" in the community & you can't please them all.
