According to the article printed in today's Herald (1/28/14), Councilman Lewis is blaming some of his troubles on store owners who come from India or Indian heritage.

Why would a man who has lived through some of the darkest of times in our society lash out at others in a different minority? Why perpetuate those same feelings of inequality?

Please Mr. Lewis, let the sleeping dogs lie. You know that you could have said things a little differently. Be part of the solution and not part of the problem.

I really could not believe he said this. his comments were racist and someone in public office should be held accountable

Lawsey! Black people can now judge people based upon their race or ethnicity! (At least one can.) Mr. Lewis must have missed MLK's speech.

I'm trying to write this tongue-in-cheek and it's not working. Mr. Lewis' comments were offensive and he should be regretful that his true colors (no pun intended) have been so blatantly put on display.

i dont know which convenience store mr lewis frequents but a "no public restrooms" policy is not a strictly middle eastern owner thing-its usually a cant trust the patrons not to tear up the toilet thing! with all due respect-its like my mama used to say-"hold it till you get to the house"

Drive-by Windows
February 27, 2014
Hi, Some of us are wise enough to stay away from the drive-by windows. Others, could not survive in an ice storm without them. There must be a better way to order dinner than yelling back and forth through a speaker system that never works properly. Repeating orders while yelling ...
