The initial thread on the article "Hosterman names City Council colleague Cook-Kallio as vice mayor, but not everyone pleased", along with its associated comments, has been deleted and is "no longer in the system".
I'm curious as to why it was removed. Which comments were so out of line that the thread had to be removed? Do you see the comments in the latest thread on this article so much more conducive to provoking thoughtful commentary on this issue that it will remain in the system? Did someone request that it be removed?
