Comments about Ron Fournier
ron_fournier: When guns are loved more than people
ron_fournier: This so-called blast effect literally tears people apart. A trauma surgeon notes, “you don’t see the muscle … just bone and skin and missing parts.” Another mentions tissue that “crumbled into your hands.”
RexHuppke: Guns. It’s the guns. It has always been the guns. And until we treat them like the deadly tools we know they are, it will always be the guns.
My column on America's latest horror:
ron_fournier: This is what an unregulated gun culture does to American children — when it’s not killing them.
HariSevugan: Children being murdered in their classrooms is so pervasive that it is now a generational problem in America.
TimFullerton: Weird how all these transphobic people are blaming gender for todays shooting.
Did any of them ever say white men are the problem?
They are the ones who commit the most mass shootings after all.
ron_fournier: Guns don’t kill people, right? Doors do.
ron_fournier: “The only original content from Salinas comes in the form of paid obituaries, making death virtually the only sign of life at an institution once considered a must-read by many Salinans.”
ktumulty: Trying to make “fetch” happen.
ron_fournier: Delete your site.
ryangrim: The “for you” tab is where the algorithm guesses which thing you’re most likely to engage with.
Rage sparks the most engagement, so if you don’t pay every month, Twitter is threatening to not serve your posts up to people who hate you
erinhahn_author: Please stop acting like arming teachers is the answer. You don't even trust us to pick out books for your children.

ron_fournier: The AR-15 is designed to kill people.
If you’re truly pro-life, push to ban these anti-life weapons.
ron_fournier: “Randy Rosenberg thought the Phillies would be mad at him, but they weren’t. He was just doing what he was told.”
ElissaSlotkin: Michigan deserves a Senator who will show up and listen. It’s the only way to truly represent our interests in the Senate. That’s why I started this campaign with a listening tour, beginning in Detroit & Flint, to meet with religious leaders, union members, small business owners,…
APStamm: Farewell to a legend
glennrstevens: All hands on deck.
Company is not hitting goals, burning cash and looks like their Michigan presence will be further diminished.
JordanAckerMI: School shootings are now a multigenerational problem, and the leading cause of death amongst children is now firearms.
We have to stop them and protect our kids.
ElissaSlotkin: Three more children have been taken by senseless gun violence. Three more families shattered. Another school district where kids will never be the same. Another community that will go through hell long after the headlines turn to something else.
ron_fournier: Such a great show.
JesseFFerguson: 70 years ago today (3.26.53), Dr. Jonas Salk announced vaccine for polio.
70 years later, MAGA Republicans are opposed to vaccines.
stuartpstevens: I know some have dined out on this as inappropriate or not professional but I thought it was one of the more genuine moments I’d seen on live television. He knew that in moments people were going to die. He reacted in his own way as a human being. I’ll take more of that.
ron_fournier: One could argue American mass production began here, the Kahn-built model for Ford’s Highland Park plant, architecture for the modern assembly line.
A national treasure left to seed
gretchenwhitmer: My priority is simple: Focus on the fundamentals and get things done for Michigan families.
ron_fournier: $700k in corporate welfare for every job promised (and not guarantee). Think on that.
ron_fournier: Buckle up

arothmanhistory: Custard's last stand
ron_fournier: The hyperbole on both sides of the right-to-work debate is not right or work.
TonyPaul1984: Jerry would regularly reach out with an email or a text after I wrote a story he liked. When it was an obit, he’d often call, and say with a laugh, “I’m next.” I’d always dismiss him and say, “You’ll outlive us all, Jerry.” Today, Jerry died. It’s nearly impossible to comprehend.
ron_fournier: Bringing shame to Michigan
rgtrendsetter: Afghanistan before he stands for reelection is not driven by the United States' 'position of strength' in the war zone as much as it is by grim economic and political realities at home.
rgtrendsetter: Now the talk of hope and change feels out of tune when so many Americans are out of work, over-mortgaged, and worried that life will be even tougher for their children.
ron_fournier: And yet he’s cleared the field. You’d think Democratic Party leaders would remember what happens when a nominee is coronated.
Wolfe321: It’s my birthday and all I want is a job. Send openings. kthxbai
EWErickson: These are the “attacks” that Trump supporters are complaining about. These people are not stable.

chelsea_janes: So we just like...wait three years now?
YAppelbaum: And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout,
But there is no joy in Mudville—Ohtani struck out Trout.
pkcapitol: There's this weird thing where we keep comparing Ohtani to Babe Ruth.
No, no, no, no, no. No. Not anymore.
Ohtani has done pitching-hitting greater than any human, in any country, than ever existed.
Ruth is distant, distant second.
ron_fournier: “Slotkin has the unenviable distinction of being the only U.S. House member to represent two communities torn apart by the trauma of mass school shootings”
ron_fournier: The Democratic Party would be smart to find out why it keeps losing voters to the GOP.
What’s the matter with a party that can’t win Iowa?

ron_fournier: Indicting a former president for $130k campaign law violations? This could backfire and help re-elect a man who incited a riot to overturn an election. Focus, people. Focus
ron_fournier: Government can fix this but it probably won’t and the suffering is unfathomable
ron_fournier: On any given vacation day, I’m most of these annoying people

ron_fournier: In the department of Bad Timing …
davidfrum: Former presidential candidate John Edwards was indicted in 2011 for redirecting other people's money to buy an ex-lover's silence. He was acquitted. Lesson: juries allow leeway for messy personal lives, even if the mess generates a campaign finance violation. 1/x
ron_fournier: 9 years
ron_fournier: A family favorite, a friend of the family. RIP
ron_fournier: Joey might be making things up
ron_fournier: This is horrific
ron_fournier: “As horrible as Covid has been — it remains one of the leading causes of death in the United States — it is not the worst-case scenario. There are viruses with case fatality rates twice, 10 times or even greater than that of Covid …”
ron_eisele: 12 March 1974. First flight of the René Fournier RF-6B. French 2 seat light trainer aircraft.
tholzerman: the ball was clearly low and outside. framing it with the question "Do you agree with the call?" with the hrmmmm emoji means Ron Fournier won, adn not even in something as unimportant as sports can we escape this fetid bullshit "both-sidesism"
ron_fournier: The Chicks were cancelled 20 years ago for speaking their truth — incredibly brave and talented women who wouldn’t cower to privilege and power.
ron_fournier: Somebody is gonna be cranky this morning
tholzerman: if there is a hell, Ron Fournier will roast in the lowest, hottest levels for making a huge chunk of the population believe that both sides of an issue are always valid and deserve to be heard
ron_fournier: Gannett has eliminated 59% of its jobs in four years. FOUR YEARS!

Local4News: The Road to Restoration program is a series of free clinics that help Michigan drivers with suspended licenses get back behind the wheel.
MattMillerMLive: This is a story about for-profit white supremacy and the complicated legacy of one Indiana recording studio and the time I bought a 99-year-old Ku Klux Klan record by mistake.
ChadLivengood: What made Metro Detroit wealthy in the 20th century was not the assembly of vehicles but the invention of them and the production processes the Big 3 exported globally.
We’re losing sight of that in these 9-figure bids for factory jobs with taxpayer $$$
ChadLivengood: Respectfully, without the automobile knowledge economy – the tech centers in Warren, Dearborn and Auburn Hills – we'd just be a state with assembly and parts plants.
In other words, we'd be Alabama, where the median household income is $8K less than us.
maggieNYT: Yes he did
ron_fournier: FOX fired two journalists for being first and right about the 2020 election. How warped
mattklewis: They had an emergency meeting to deal with the problem of having been right

ron_fournier: Behold the Yzer-plan!
