Jaime Franchi commented on Jonathan Wolfman's blog post What If Sexual Orientation Were a Choice? Why Must Justice Require a Born-This-Way Argument?
"This is a really interesting and thoughtful idea Jonathan. Truthfully, I think this lends itself to the bigotry against the poor and the overweight. If it's preventable or rectifiable (in our minds), we're allowed to hold it in disdain.…"

Jaime Franchi commented on Jonathan Wolfman's blog post "Blowback": Writers' Cowardly Abuse of Language in Response to the Bombings at Boston

Jaime Franchi commented on Jonathan Wolfman's blog post Pop Quiz: What Percentage of Our Children in Poverty are in Welfare-Receiving Families?
"This whole system is set up against poor people. We encourage them to work, yet keep wages so low that they can't make ends meet, and then disqualify them for social services. You're right - the children bear the worst of the brunt. We…"

Jaime Franchi commented on tr ig's blog post Suicide Monday and the meaning of life
"Would it be so lame to quote "I don't like Mondays - I want to shoot the whole day down"? Well, whatever. You guys now know what's in my iPod. This, awesome. As are you.  Food for thought, perspective, and all that . "

Jaime Franchi commented on Jonathan Wolfman's blog post How Many People Do You Really Trust?
"Without giving it serious enough thought to sit down and count, I'd have to say that I have many. But there's different kinds of trust: some I would trust with my children, some with my secrets, others with my love. Some I would trust to…"

Jaime Franchi commented on Joan H's blog post Moving to Florida
"I don't even know what to say to that one Joanie, except what a raw, honest, unflinching and evocative post.  (I guess I thought of something.)  You make me feel.  "
