    Whenever is a roro article comments like crazy. Anything positive, nothing, or ten at best. That is why sometimes DNO having some kinda headlines to pull in the crowd. Bad news sells.

      Not every article will draw comments though. The above article is one for which comments are really not necessary. What would 50 commenters say? In any case, for most of the controversial articles, most times it is one person posting many comments using different names.

      Maybe DNO should have a “thumbs up”, “thumbs down” , or “like” button below every article for those who just want to approve or disapprove of the article, without making a comment.

      Listen DA girl, did these people seek permission for their march from the chief o police and did they get it? I’m sure they have a very worthwile cause but forgive me , a march for our democratic rights and electoral reform is far more significant as far as I’m concerned. Get real.
