  1. Stupid, juvenile and offensive on a few levels.

    No editor, maybe?

    Also stupid:

    "The column was eventually pulled from the newspaper's website after John Dawe, president of Dawe Consulting and a local activist, filed a Change.org petition, demanding an apology from the writer, editor and publisher."

    From what I can tell, no apologies to owners of vaginas.

    They don't need an apology! They're getting free drinks!

    That dumbass's apology is the most nonsensical thing about this.

    You weren't posing as a veteran, but reluctantly posed as one after a drunk stranger insisted you were one and harassed you into allowing him to buy you a drink?

    He's lucky a veteran didn't wait for him outside the office and beat the living shit out of the smarmy prick.

    That was my thought, too. In a small town, that's an amazing way to get your ass kicked.

    On top of all this, this is about the last metro area in America where you want to put that out there.

    (The Citizens' Voice, which has co-existed bitterly in the same town as the Times Leader since splintering off as a union startup in the '80s, had to be licking its collective lips while writing the story below.)

    Scranton and Wilkes-Barre aren't exactly small towns, either. Metro area tops 560,000.
