It's not about cost - it's about control

It's not about cost - it's about control

  Make no mistake about - County Councilman George Leventhal claims to be the driving force behind two bills under consideration in the legislature that could destroy the last few remaining independent newspapers in this state - including The Montgomery County Sentinel. The bills are being sold as cost saving measures and needed because public notices, at least in the eyes of Leventhal are a “vestige of last century and big cost to taxpayers as fewer newspapers are published,” Leventhal said in a tweet Tuesday. He also said "The Sentinel has tiny readership and the Post is prohibitively expensive." He has never inquired as to the size of our readership, so one must ask him how he decided our circulation size. And if we are small and growing to fill the gap left by the demise of the Gazette - why would he not support an independent press?  He has also never asked us...

The mentally ill hypocrisy

04-02-2016 Hits:232 Editor's Notebook Mark Robinson - avatar Mark Robinson

I walked into District court Tuesday to testify in a burglary case. Back in October someone broke into my car and took cash and some private items – but thankfully left behind my credit card and driver’s license. A Rockville police officer found my personal property and some of the cash when he was investigating another burglary. The plain clothes officer and his partner rousted a homeless man found asleep under an overpass on Gude drive near Rockville Pike and during the course of questioning the young man they got consent to search and found my property. According to the defense attorney assigned to the case and according to police officers, the young man has an arrest record and has mental health problems.

Shatner beams himself into the Warner

  William Shatner. COURTESY PHOTO “Tell us a tale, you’re the Rocket Man, tell us a tale tonight/We’re all in the mood for a homily, and you’ve got us feeling all right…”    WASHINGTON – At about 7:30 last Thursday, I made my way to my upper balcony seat at Warner Theatre. I was there to see William Shatner perform his one-man show, “Shatner’s World.” An usher walked around the section, asking if anyone was interested in paying $20 to upgrade to suite seating. Embracing the affirming motto of my generation –“#YOLO” (You only live once.) - I raised my hand and said I’d do it. In the end, I was very happy with this decision, not simply because of the increased legroom, but because the closer proximity to the stage made for a more intimate and moving experience.
