  1. Steal a post and dont even give the site you got this and other stories from credit..you guys should be ashamed

    • Who are you accusing me of stealing this from? Internally I emailed this link to our staff earlier in the day but no one was free to post but when I did post it I still didn’t see any site reporting on it. WMPU seems to agree as they linked us as their source.

  2. I’m so sick of this elections crap already, I can’t wait until it’s over. I’m also sick of the 8-10 phone calls I get per day from these people. It’s a shame that they don’t have to abide by the Do Not Call list.. I just want ti all to go away..
