Re: “Long Story Short

Wow, the new site looks just like the Onion. I wonder if you'll be as dedicated to truthful reporting as they are now that you've got this new fancy look.

Re: “Long Story Short

Welcome to the Indy’s new site, which we’ve revamped in many ways to make as streamlined and user-friendly as possible. But during this transition, any comments that posted between Wednesday and Friday will not appear until Monday, as we move all the data.

All postings sent now will appear as usual, with the most recent comments on the home page.

You’ll also see constant changes and revisions on the home page each day, as we focus on events coming up that day and highlight different stories. You can check out full menus from the list of topics (News, Music, Film, Visual Arts, etc.) across the top. You can also see the electronic version of our latest issue by clicking on "Digital Issue."

We hope you enjoy the improvements, and we appreciate any feedback you might have. Thanks.

Ralph Routon, executive editor, Independent.

Re: “The great puppet maker

I remember going to the Simpiches store when I was younger and was always fascinated by the wonderful craftsmanship. Its great to hear about the Simpiches again and I love that the Independent wrote an article about them so people can see how talented they are! A wonderfully written article!

Re: “The great puppet maker

I am shocked, an inspiring article on the continuation of a family held craft that has world-wide appeal right in Colorado Springs. Talk about edgy for the Indy, no skeleton or spray paint art expelled from the expatriated, upper class youth we find hawking their wares locally. It is refreshing to hear about a local artist with worldwide appeal whose notoriety is not gained from shock and awe but through skill.

Re: “The great puppet maker

Thanks for the article! I appreciate reading about local artists who have gained notoriety in an often forgotten art form.

Re: “Whose town is it, anyway?

I've seen the RiP play several times -- tonight should be a good show!

Re: “Whose town is it, anyway?

Thanks for a great article! As one of the founding members of SHiP I couldn't be happier with the improv scene in the Springs. If you haven't seen one of these groups perform you're really missing out. Come see the Funniest Show in Pants this weekend in Manitou -- we'd love to have you experience the funny.

Re: “Walking into walls

I agree with wendeebyrd - this is an excellent article and it sped up my visit to the FAC Modern. I was delighted with all three installations, especially the two more subtle ones. I also feel very strongly, that since we are now entering a recession, museums, galleries and critics should be giving our local artists all the support they can muster.

Re: “Walking into walls

I'm so glad that Frances' delicious choice of words has left me feeling like I've been to the exhibit and experienced it in all its beautiful extravagance. I can't wait to read more graciously written articles from this writer.

Re: “Theater-asaurus

After you go see Walking With Dinosaurs, be sure to go to the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center in Woodland Park and see the skeletons of a bunch of dinosaurs. It's a really educational and entertaining place to take the kids. Their web site is
