    Who is responsible for hiring the OBVIOUS sub-par journalist? For the love of GOD! Fire them and give someone with an 8th grade education a job!

      Do you read a lot of articles on here? Most of them read far worse than this one… fragment sentences everywhere, and an odd flow to the commentary.

      Chalk it up to it being a synopsis of the news for a TV new show. I have given up expecting it to read like a publication… It’s not.

    city buses have been driving erratically down Davenport streets for a while. I’ve noticed a lot of the bus drivers in this town look very confused when they’re driving around. I was nearly side swiped of the street by a city bus just a couple weeks ago on Iowa and 14th it’s probably the same bus driver perhaps they should find people who are qualified for the job before put them on the streets. I’ve got a TV antenna that’s almost broke that could be a bus driver for Davenport…
