Re: “Darryl Glenn suddenly recalls a fight with his father that led to a criminal charge

Why is it that the Denver Post and the Indy can't stop themselves from wallowing in the details of an event that happened 32 years ago and which is nobody's business outside the Glenn family? The Gazette gave the answer to this baffling question in their editorial yesterday, titled "Media on witch hunt to get Darryl Glenn."

The Gazette notes that there is a double standard in reporting and editorializing on politicians. Case in point: Mark Udall was arrested for transporting amphetamines and marijuana when he was 21. His father, Mo Udall, the powerful Arizona congressman, intervened and the 2 felonies were plea bargained to a misdemeanor. Mark's car was permanently seized, he paid a fine, spent a night in jail, and got 6 months probation. The Denver Post was virtually mum when the facts - contradicting Mark's remembrances of the event - were made public. The Post conducted no investigative reports or condemnatory editorials re Udall. But re Glenn, the Post can't stop stirring the mud. The Gazette is right. Democrats get a wink and a nod and Republicans get tarred, feathered and run out of town.

Re: “Some Air Force Academy cadets never have a chance — and they leave feeling defeated

hadenoughofpam: Actually, this piece is an example of good journalism, although you apparently wouldn't recognize that genre if you saw it.

Is it one sided? I suppose so. But since the AFA declined her requests for their side, the Academy doesn't have anything to complain about.

Kids wash out of college all the time. Most of them don't get sent to a mental ward and get medicated in the process. That alone makes this story worth reading. So until the AFA can explain their procedures, I guess we're stuck with just one side of the story.

If you're looking for just positive stories about the AFA, you probably need to read the local daily paper. I'm pretty sure they cover the subjects you're looking for.

Re: “Some Air Force Academy cadets never have a chance — and they leave feeling defeated

This author Pam Zebeck hates USAFA and does not write anything about the academy unless it is hugely negative. She does her best to trash any and all activity at the USAFA. There are plenty positive to write about but she chooses none. Pam it's time you found any place to bully throw your venom. Life's too short to be so negative.

Actually, Tannim, I have 2 degrees already. I was more interested in the Army, anyways, but they tend to dislike bad knees. Many people who I have talked to seem to have hated the place, too.... except the white preppy kids from fairly well-off families.. they seemed to be drastically different in their appreciation and accolades they received there.

Re: “Two women Dems looking to break political curse in county commissioner races

I live in District 4 and I will be leaving the BOCC slot blank, because neither of them match my needs for representation and administration in the county, which is basic infrastructure maintenance and improvement, more law enforcement beyond our lone sheriff deputy, and otherwise getting the county and state government out of our way.

Glenn is just Ed Jones 2.0, with the same script but better polish.

Not a good candidate. Lousy commissioner. Questionable integrity and honesty, too.

Apparently Thomas Shea couldn't make the cut there either. The academics are fierce and high. They get a real education there, but Tommy wouldn't even make a D- in freshman physics.

Re: “Trump made no sense — or friends — during Springs campaign stop

Donald Trump is running a massive con game. He's a carpetbagging RINO that is a friend of Hillary's, has been for years, and he's deliberately tanking and taking the GOP with him in order to elect Hillary. It's the only thing that explains all of his bizarre behavior. People are falling for the con all over, from the grassroots to the elite. That's why the only choice is Gary Johnson.

Re: “Some Air Force Academy cadets never have a chance — and they leave feeling defeated

Yeah the AFA is a joke. Nothing but racist bullies. You're way better off going to a real school and getting a real education rather than simply trying to learn how to be the biggest jerk on the campus. I have yet to hear a positive story come out of that place. Most of it is cultist behavior and systematic torture and ruining of lives of anyone they don't deem part of their master academy race.

Trump may accidentally encourage more people to run for office by showing even a lunatic sociopath can win some votes. No matter how bad he loses he will forever claim victory.

Re: “Trump made no sense — or friends — during Springs campaign stop

Or you can vote for Lying Hillary that has a proven record of not being a capable Secretary Of State. Directly responsible for Americans being murdered in Benghazi. Jeopardizing national security with classified emails and lying to the entire nation about it. Etc……..

Obvious explanation: like Hitler in his final days, The Donald has resorted to heavy drug use to keep himself going. Fits all the facts, doesn't it?

Couldn't they just do a brewery or a coffee shop instead?

Sure would be nice to be able to go snowboarding without having to drive a few hours out and back.
