The Peanut Gallery

Are you a member of the Peanut Gallery?

Not sure? Well heres a quiz to help you decide if you just might be a member of the Peanut Gallery:

  1. Do you have an opinion no matter how little you know about a subject? Local event or nuclear physics - doesn’t make any difference - you have an opinion and by crackey the rest of the world is entitled to it!

  2. Do you avoid every opportunity to contribute to any possible solution to a community problem? "Not me, I'm busy.”

  3. Have you NEVER run for office or sat on any community organization’s board? "That’s for patsies.”
Answer yes to any of these and you might be a member of the Peanut Gallery. Named for a theaters cheap seats, where peanuts were served and often thrown at performers, the term is now used to describe a group of people who offer frequent and abundant criticism.


Every one of us has the right to an opinion. The Freedom of Speech guaranteed by the Bill of Rights prohibits the government from curtailing that speech. The very existence of this newspaper is predicated on that Freedom, so we take it very seriously. Watch our letters page over the course of a year and youll see that we print just about every letter that arrives in our office, many of them expressing views that we certainly don't agree with. Some expressing views we cant quite figure out. And nobody from any branch of the government tells us what to print.
