Every hypocrite thinks they have a good reason for being a hypocrite. No different than Walmart getting rich by selling merchandise made in China while draping itself in the red, white and blue of buy American and putting Americans out of work.
Your apology for your lack of integrity is not excepted.
Well, and there's films from Colorado Springs under THAT radar as well. For example, the Sundance-submitted documentary "Infinite Lives: The Road to E3". Who knows if it'll get selected, but it's been a long time coming.
Railroad engineers have been cooking their lunch on their massive diesel engines for many years. They know exactly where to place the aluminum foil wrapped contents and how long they need to let it cook at given speeds!
And you come across as an enlightened individual who actually sees people as people.
Thank You not only for your article but for taking the time to express here some of the issues so many do not understand.
Well, your worries are over.
The fearless Democrats removed the pay cap from the stimulus.
Now CEOs are free to take every penny of bailout funds and give it to themselves!
It is so true, we need help. If only there would be some good direction and less fighting on how. We need action now. I went to a lyme meeting once given my a "lyme expert" who stood in front of about 100 people and told us out right that she doesn't even bother sending in any report when she knows someone has lyme disease! Also is a believer that there is no Chronic lyme! Hog wash! She hasn't spent a day in my shoes then.
Chronic lymes exist, but not to the mayo clinic, or the rest of the corrupt,mainstream medical industry
Sorry Ralph, I was temporarily in a bit of a media void and missed the contest. It may do your heart good to know some of us are unafraid to reveal the dirt. (Check out my reply to the current lead-story.
Indeed, my online username is the same as my pen-name. Almost everyone of my acquaintance will have no difficulty determining the authoress.
If only I had run for DA before getting pulled over on my scooter...
My father has always wrapped every gift he gives in Newspaper.
I guess they don't call it a doorbuster sale for nothing. Just remember that because it is cheap for you, doesn't mean the economic costs, environmental damage, and cost to others are not extensive.
Lets support our local businesses this holiday season. When you buy local you are putting food on a fellow Colorado Springer's table. When you buy from a chain store, you are most likely buying the CEO his fifth Ferrari.
Frank, Red Bird is a local comapany and processes over 2 million yard birds per year. Supporting the local economy can be crucial in times like these, it may sound selfish but if we roll up the carpet, make and spend our dollars localy. It could create a small stable bubble. Of course it is impossible to completely buy localy year round here in Colorado, and I also understand that todays society could give a rats ass about their neighbors, it is about convinience and whats in it for me after all (sigh)
So Frank, you eat the bones too?
According to the interweb, an average serving of chicken is .25lbs, and an average chicken is about 4lbs. Thus one chicken can provide a meal for 16 people. To feed the Colorado Springs Metro, 500,000 people, would take 31,250 chickens per week and 1,625,000 chickens per year (assuming we all want chicken - yum!). Unless I'm missing something, there are not 1.6 million chickens available locally, so this idea is impossible, right?
Another consequence would be that due to the lost economies of scale, food prices would increase significantly, making food unafordable in poorer nations, leading to increased hunger and suffering there. Please, please do not buy into this eat local crap.
I for one am happy that someone is doing something with that pile of dirt. Much better to have homes up there than nothing. Have you seen the views from up there-- just real nice.
Turning inward is good. I just hope instead of focusing so much on "self-esteem," relationships etc., that the preaching becomes serious. It would be great to see expository preaching. Pick a book of the bible and go through it verse by verse. Not THAT would be something most believers would really enjoy.
Ruth Wallis passed away on December 22nd. The New York Times published a very nice article about her in their Jan 3rd edition. Typecast as solely a risque comedienne, it's refreshing to see her referred to as a 'Jazz' singer. Having written more than 125 songs, not to mention 'Boobs ! The Musical' (300 performances at the Triad Theater, New York City), it's gratifying to see my mother given the notice that ultra-conservative America denied her while she was alive. Thank you Kirsten.

You ask if anything is pure anymore. Tell me, when was anything pure? When in the history of the world have animals been free of potentially harmful microorganisms? When in the history of the world has there been water untainted by bacteria and minerals? When in the history of the world has there been air free of infectious organisms and dust?
The answer of course is never. Why should we expect something from our environment that has never really existed except in some childish environmentalist fantasy? The real world is a dirty messy place, get over it.
Why the obsession with revitalizing downtown? The roads are narrow, the buildings antiquated and the parking a nightmare. Short of burning it all down and starting over with a better plan any efforts will simply be more wasted tax dollars while real problems continue to fester.
There are streets in this town that never get plowed, where snow and ice remain for weeks following a snowstorm. But the city spends money on fountains and parks in the downtown area that only serve the homeless population. There are intersections that become lakes after a rain and the city spends our money on gurus and advisers on how to fix downtown.
There is a huge amount of city that isn't downtown, but that doesn't seem to register with the city government or the staff of the Independent. If you spend all this time and money fixing up downtown who will go there? The majority of our population doesn't live anywhere near downtown. A half hour drive followed by a futile attempt to find a good parking spot all to pay high prices for the same crap they can get at a Wal Mart that's right around the corner with plenty of parking isn't worth it for most folks.
Downtown, just another way for the elitist snobs to waste the tax money of the majority who won't be serviced by this revitalization dream.
