WHO DO YOU THINK DESERVES TO GET A LUMP OF COAL IN HIS OR HER STOCKING THIS YEAR? 

(Part 2 of 2)

Ann Lemons Pollack
Food Writer

"Self-important maître d's, condescending servers and both Missouri U.S. senators."

Don Hary
Laborer

"Whoever cut down that KKK highway sign -- that was just ignorant. Why not just let them do what they were supposed to do -- pick up trash and keep the highway clean. Were they gonna wear their sheets and hoods? I wanted to see what was gonna happen, and then someone goes and takes the signs down."

Michael Schemkes
Home Repair/Construction

"We should all get at least a little lump of coal, because we are all sinners. Let he who is without sin place the first lump of coal."

Dena Conner
Alumni Development, Washington University

"Beej Nierengarten-Smith, because of her notorious mishandling of the situation at Laumeier Sculpture Park. I read the articles and they made me mad -- how she was trying to remove an exhibit undercover, like some covert action, and how the person who leaked the story to the RFT is now working in no-man's-land, otherwise known as the Museum of Transportation. We love Laumeier -- my daughter goes to their art camp every year -- and I feel they should keep the public in mind when they make changes to the park."

Matt Carr
Philosophy Student, St. Louis University

"The Seattle police, because they don't know how to run a riot."

Biggie Dolman
Host, What Up, Dog?, Farkus Radio Network

"The Republican majority, for initiating the impeachment proceedings on principle and then not having the gumption to follow through and force Clinton out. They had enough on him to go to the White House and physically remove him -- and neuter the old boy for good measure."
