The printed Mercury says the complete candidate responses to the Mercury’s questions will be available on the web site.  Does anyone know where the full responses are located because I have not been able to find them, or do you have to be a paid subscriber to the e-edition to see them?

Well, I found one candidate’s responses under “K-State Sports” and then under “Cross Country.”  Apparently, the “find the full responses on the Mercury’s web site” is a game where one has to guess under what unrelated category they have been filed.  Seriously?

The links above will take you to the Mercury articles on candidate questions on Debt, Mass Transit and Eco Devo.  It appears that you have to be a subscriber to see the full articles.

The candidates’ responses in the printed Mercury have been edited, and supposedly, as stated in the March 17th article, the candidates’ full, unedited responses are available in a secret, undisclosed location on the web site.  I don’t think there’s K-State cross country going on right now either . . .
