dp72. You could be no more spot on! I witnessed myself what you have laid down here. Saturday nights at the Hungry Farmer were filled with hippies, cowboys, business folk; we all got along. The developers and the xtian right indeed have separated us.
Side note. Where are Mr. Ed and his legions of T-gops Brucers now that we see who they truly are? ENOUGH!
Repeal TABOR immediately, vote in Mary Lou. Let's get moving again.

Re: “This just in: left-lane driver offended

what is a reasonable speed to an old fart... they can drive slow and they are not breaking any laws. most people see the blue hair and don't give it a second thought. then again most people in this village think it is everyone else that can't drive... the author had it correct...this town is full of clueless drivers.

Likewise, it is a good thing that you can pass for White, Mr. Kerry Penn, or else the KKK would burn a cross on your lawn.

It was a good thing that the computer was white, if it were black, Obama would send 40 FBI agents go gather evidence that the computers civil rights were violated.

Re: “Netflix Picks: Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil

Great comedy-horror movie. This is hilarious, pretty well done. Lots of entertaining scenes. I can Imagine hard core horror buffs will likely hate it, but for most people in between I think they can find it enjoyable. I think a couple parts could have been done a little bit better as in leading up to the big 'surprise' when you see the direction this movie is all about but I may have been mislead slightly in the trailer. In the trailer it kind of hits you right in your face, the film lets you in on it a bit more gradually. But I'm being picky, I thought it was a good film. Good fun, a dose of horror/gore and quite funny. Will watch it again on netflix. if you live outside usa, u can access netflix by using vpn.

Re: “This just in: left-lane driver offended

While I agree that speeding is a serious epidemic, especially in the Colorado Springs area, I would point out some things:

First of all, the law (C.R.S. 42-4-1013) states that drivers are required to keep right except for when passing when on a multi-lane (per direction) highway with a speed limit of 65 mph or higher. This does not apply on county roads, city streets, etc. nor does it apply (obviously) if there is only one lane per direction of travel.

The law DOES allow for a driver to get into the left lane if they are getting ready to turn left; however, this is not all that common on a multi-lane highway with a speed limit of 65 mph or higher -- so, when the letter writer talks about moving into the left lane in anticipation of a left turn, their argument starts to fall apart. Additionally, you wouldn't move over as soon as possible. I may anticipate a left turn 20 miles ahead -- this does not mean I should move into the left lane 20 miles from the turn. You want to move over at a REASONABLE distance ahead, neither so far out that it inconveniences other drivers, nor at the last minute so that you have to fight your way across lanes and again cause problems for other drivers.

The letter writer should also be aware that there are minimum speeds. The general rule stated by the law (C.R.S. 42-4-1103) is "No person shall drive a motor vehicle on any highway at such a slow speed as to impede or block the normal and reasonable forward movement of traffic, except when a reduced speed is necessary for safe operation of such vehicle or in compliance with law." So, if you are doing 45 mph in a 65 zone, unless there is a factor such as weather or a vehicle problem, you are violating the law. It isn't necessarily about what an individual feels is safe -- some people don't feel safe above 35 mph -- it is about what a reasonable person would feel is safe. Further, many roads have a posted Minimum Speed.

Even if you are going the maximum speed limit, the law requires you to stay to the right except when passing -- regardless of if would be illegal for pass you and therefore speed.

While speeding is indeed a problem and can DRAMATICALLY increase the amount of energy in a crash, there are several other things the writer needs to be worried about: Running red lights, Tailgating, Texting/Tweeting/Taking pictures or video while driving (all of which are illegal, even when stopped at a red light), Wearing seatbelts, etc.

Re: “Seceding from the Springs

Hold on there! I live east of Academy and head downtown often. I vote left. I hate strip malls.I've seen homes in my suburbs with solar panels, even! Don't lump all of us together -- after all, east of Chelton used to be suburbs a long time ago.

Thank you, Thom Andreas, well said. Thanks for calling out the father for his uncharitable, judgmental behavior and inaccurate misuse of loaded words. That guy is full of hate and condemnation, and he gives Christians a bad name.

Re: “An Indy resolution honoring our local computer killer

I work in a customer service call center dealing with people who don't listen as I instruct them how to log onto our website when they are unable to get connected because they keep repeating their mistake over and over, and some days I wish my phone had a "Bitch slap" button on my phone because they aren't following my instructions. Other days, I wish I could use a shotgun on my computer system when it keeps crashing the "cloud" system we use to take membership orders on. LOL

Re: “Seceding from the Springs

Back in the 1970s the city council was called "The Club" and had an appetite for expansion that seemed like it would never be quenched. The annexation of Broadmoor, Ivywild, Stratmoor, Knob Hill, Chapel Hills, etc... frequently ended up in court. The Broadmoor annexation at least resulted in the requirement of an election before future annexations could proceed.

Colorado Springs even wanted to be a city and county government.

All the City could see was tax money at the end of the annexation rainbow. Now that all of that infrastructure, originally built by contractors and LIDs, is up for replacement or repair no one wants to pay up. Government, parks, or churches occupy what were core industrial areas further reducing community's ability to generate tax revenue and growth. All that is missing is a community pot garden that distributes communal weed tax free.

The Club got what it asked for. The City has grown too large to ever go back to the days of little towns ringing the City. It's time to pay the check.

Re: “Trail Etiquette

the only feces that breaks down quickly and completely is from animals that do not eat meat. most dog foods contain "meat". most grazing animals do not eat meat and thus their feces breaks down completely without most of the nasty stink. you most certainly should never put any feces from meat eaters on your grass or garden.
