Re: “Reader: A reminder that Doug Lamborn is not representing the people

Put a $100 bill in an envelope and send it Lamborn. I'm sure that will get you in the door for a meeting with him. Another $100 might help him listen to you as well.

Sorry, but cynicism is a form of realism. In this case, the reality is that he doesn't give a whit about anyone but his donors.

Re: “UPDATE: Nor'wood working land swap deal with the city

Amazing, 301 Cimino Dr. went from $270,000 to $904,000 in less than 4 months? Meanwhile, 25 and 125 Cimino dropped by almost $1,000,000? And these parcels were donated to the city by David Jenkins in December are now being traded back to him? What am I missing here? What's going on?

Does Jenkins get two tax deductions, one for donating the parcels to the city and another for trading a 'lesser' value properties back to the city? Real estate folks, what don't I understand? This smells to me, and it seems some of the stink is coming from the appraisers office.

Re: “UPDATE: Nor'wood working land swap deal with the city

Bill Murray is my hero.

There may be some good reasons the city is swapping a couple large pieces of land for one little piece of land, but I am so tired of the frickin' (can I use that word?) patronizing reasons and bogus "assessments" that are fed to the citizens of this city.

Re: “Al Gore continues to build an army, battle climate change denial

Al Gore should organize another Democratic vote by scientists, what was the last - 95% of the scientists who knew nothing about climate voted with ignorant blind faith in worship of the few who professed to understand climate

Re: “Al Gore continues to build an army, battle climate change denial

Al Gore is Trumped lately, perhaps he should organize another Democratic vote where 95% [?] of scientists who know nothing about climate in blind faith worship the few scientists who say they understand climate

Re: “Richard Skorman maligned by dark money group in City Council race

Chuck Fowler taking a stand for Colorado Springs taxpayers? Now that is rich. Fowler's "City Committee" echoed repeatedly the need for growth in revenue for the City to keep solvent, yet he went to Denver to testify in support of City for Champions whose financing plan would swallow up the growth (in tax increment financing) he says is so vital and apply that growth on projects his endorsers and his campaign financiers back. And the Gazette's connection to the shadow political operative efforts through the editorial page editor and his wife should make any weighing in they do on these issues null and void by those with any sort of critical eye. Some of the most repulsive elements crawl out of their cockroach nests during campaigns.

Re: “Reader: Forget about the downtown stadium already

Personally, I have no problem with a downtown stadium, as long as our tax dollars are not spent to build and run it.

Re: “UPDATE: Is Richard Skorman really in bed with 'Big Marijuana?'

Mr. K--

You are correct - the word that was used by Generoso Pope, Jr - the original founder or creator of the Enquirer to describe what his paper concentrated on was "seedy" and not that he actually came out and said his paper was a "sleaze-rag" Stories with some odd or freakish twist.

We wrote about stories that regular people could relate to. They were human-interest stories with some odd or freakish twist that would make them interesting. We didnt make stuff up, but we did sensationalize it.

"Often, much of what the public likes to read involve the seedy side of life"

As far as the current President, not sure he has created a level of credibility that warrants discussion.

Re: “UPDATE: Is Richard Skorman really in bed with 'Big Marijuana?'

Since when did The Enquirer admit it is a "sleaze-rag"? Not that it isn't, but it would never admit to it. Our new president has no problem citing articles from the rag as if it were the gospel truth.

Re: “City ballot issues: Just say YES to all three

RE Item #1: I happen to agree with the desire to keep the utilities public and so I hesitate to bring it up, but something seems bizarre about this proposal. It asks a majority of the voters in this election to approve the depriving of a majority of the voters in a future election from approving the sale of the utilities. I guess I'll compromise my principles and vote for it anyway.

The Enquirer at least admits they are a 'sleaze-rag' and don't pretend otherwise!

Re: “The Gazette lifted our jail food story

Plagiarism, according to the Cambridge Dictionary, is "to use another persons idea or a part of that person's work and pretend that it is your own." (http://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/diction…)

In other words: stealing.

and it IS a big deal. How would you like someone taking your research essay, or song lyrics, or a novel you wrote, and publish them as their own? Profiting from your work without your permission? I'd be willing to bet you wouldn't care for that very much.

The Gazette may have a different motive for publishing a story than the Indy. Perhaps Mr. Anschutz has invested in a company under scrutiny and would like to spin the story a different way. Or perhaps to take credit for breaking an important story. It would not be the first time.
