Money Talks. [Something Else] Walks.

August 15

Democrat and Chronicle's lead editorial headline:

"Do More to Get a grip on Gun Violence"

August 16
Democrat and Chronicle advertising supplement for sporting goods store headlined   "First Shot," advertising 19 guns for sale -- at bargain prices! -- including semi-automatic rifle with 10-round magazine, and sundry boxes of ammo.
And nothing wrong with that, to be sure.   Just a reminder that the D&C is a business, run to earn profits for the corporation in Virginia that owns it.   Its editors' sole accountability is to that corporation, not to the residents of Rochester, Monroe County or western New York.   Remember that when its editors pontificate about how our community should be run.
