    Very true! I think there is a lot of misunderstanding about these things and dialogue is important. We don’t always have to agree with each other, but we won’t know what our differences are if we don’t discuss them…civilly. Speculation and assumption is the enemy of all.
    Thanks for taking the initiative to be a part of the solution!

    I am currently working with a team to analyze their business in regards to politics, race, income etc. This type of behavior near the core of downtown dallas needs to stop.

    Well, an example that I can think of right off of the top of my head is about education and the role of DISD, esp. on social issues. The articles that are written seem to focus more on taking care of social problems by schools than on education, per se, and no, I can’t give you a particular article without looking back for it.
    it would be good to have a discussion about these types of things. To use the above, I, personally, believe that the parents need to take an active role in their child’s education and school. That includes being active AT the school, helping the child with homework, etc. Social programs can only go so far in these types of situations and that is NOT the role of DISD. Education is their role. Let the social programs fall to extracurricular clubs, organizations, etc. and to social organizations in the community. I know that there are many who disagree with that, and will state that the schools are the central part of a child’s life and so should do all that they can to provide for the child…but that’s the parent’s job.

    Anyway, I just think that these types of articles (and this is just an example) could be discussed from several perspectives to give a more balanced, informative platform so that readers can decide for themselves.

    The mayoral election, the deck park, taxes and revenue, etc. just, to me, seem to be presented in a more liberal slant with no input from a more conservative perspective.

    Thanks for the response.

  • GeneP54, we rarely write about anything that has much to do with a political agenda, liberal or conservative. Can you give us some examples of what you are talking about?

  • GeneP54

    They also don’t accept any perspectives that don’t support a liberal agenda. I’d love to see a cross-talk format for liberal vs conservative opinions on topics.

  • East Oak Cliff, it’s pretty obvious we aren’t going to come to any agreement here. We’ve stated what we’re doing clearly, and I’m sorry that you don’t care for how we do business. But I do appreciate your comments, and I can assure you that we’ll continue to do our best to cover as much of Oak Cliff as we can afford to cover.

    So why don’t you cover the East Side of Oak Cliff?

    And you go on to say that Advocate Oak Cliff doesn’t accept handouts.

  • East Oak Cliff, what earlier post are you referring to? We cover issues that affect all parts of Oak Cliff; the fact that the highway was closed for several hours undoubtably impact residents traveling in and around the neighborhood during that period.

  • East Oak Cliff

    In an earlier post you mentioned that Advocate Oak Cliff doesn’t cover stories outside their distributed coverage area. This is clearly out of the coverage are, so what drives this inconsistency?
