Wild Wolf, according to the dislikes you received, Rich doesn't represent most of us. It makes me feel hopeful that critical thinking skills are on the rebound in our country. You and Rich are uneducated on matters relating to firearms, and even more clueless on how to protect children.
Hey Rich, it's too bad the Principal didn't have a gun of her own...then she wouldn't have had to run screaming at the man who was there to massacre her children. Too much logic for you?
Mikey Mac: You stated - "Colorado Springs has become one of the most extreme right-wing Christian cities in this country. I have lived in this region since I moved here from New York in 1978. I will not be here much longer." My reply is: no it isn't and don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out.
In your next 'stinky' paragraph and in two sentences you used the word "stench" three times. This leads me to one of three conclusions:
1. You smell worse than everyone else.
2. You are not very creative.
3. You are not very smart.
My response has nothing whatsoever to do with being gay or not, but I'm thinking you are the narrow-minded bigot in the room.
"even if their first official action is to change the name of City Hall to CityCOM."
... I'd allow it. :D
Your wife's secret is safe RR. The three other people and I, who read your column, won't tell anyone.
This would essentially be a regressive tax, taking from the effectively unproductive, depressed, weak, and shiftless to fund police to cleanup their messes, social workers to try to find them jobs, food stamps to feed them, and buses to take them to supply their stash.
Why not make them get clean, get productive, get personally responsible? These people need motivation of the most basic kind, not addictive drugs that we tax to increase a cycle of dependency and worthlessness for them.
Ralph...think about it!
Golly Bob, just a bit testy this a.m. Why don't you try a good dump.
One question: when you use the pejorative "brainiacs", are you suggesting that you believe yourself superior or did you think yourself cute?
The airport is a "jewel"?? Really? NO It is a freaking airport! It has massive concrete runways, windows, walls and rows of urinals in the men's room. Colorado Springs cannot run a bus service, how it got itself an airport is a mystery. The "attract business" line has been the phrase of every city leader since day one but none actually knew how to do that. I remember the local news would announce a new company in town that was going to have 150 new jobs! Telemarketing! Yeah those annoying phone calls at dinner time trying to sell you something after they have pissed you off! Brainiacs!
Tosches just went wherever the short bus took him. When the Indy asked him what qualifications he possessed to get this "job" he told them he was "funny in the head". Boomer49, that zinger you delivered was such that I felt the sting! The sting of embarrassment for you. You want to be like Tosches when you grow up? Sure you do! Now go back in the house and put your pants on already.
See what you started Rich, now there's gonna be a ruckus...hold my hat would ya.
Consumers should think twice before applying for payday loans and don’t fill loan application forms in a hurry. Because of tough economy there are lots of people with low income and they are looking for quick ways of borrowing money. And some of them don’t even pay attention at interest rates charged on loans. Any loan is a serious financial commitment and it’s not worth to use expensive services, even if they are fast and have benefits. Make sure you can pay off the loan and will not get into the debt circle. Payday loan lenders charge high rates because they take a risk when borrowing money to bad credit individuals.

What community college you ask "omegawolf"? The one where your ma served lunch.
Happy few, you still don't have a clue...they don't shoot 15 million rounds a year n practice.
They are buying up ammunition to keep us from doing that...they are preparing to keep us in line with Obama's plans when health care and food and energy become unavailable.
chili, the 15 million is what they use a year, not what was bought. learn to read and.... try again.
I want to corect one thing in the quote by Peggy Littleton. Part of what is attributed to her was actually said by someone else. Here is the unedited version which states that.
"Peggy Littleton, El Paso county commissioner. I wanted to encourage everybody who's here, and this may not be as much of a question, but what happens is, and you've probably seen it and can attest to this. When the city council considers what to do with oil and gas regulations, the county has already put down regulations long ago- over a year ago! It would make sense for the city to have and adopt the exact same regulations as the county has. What we see often, however, is the people who don't work, but who are environmentalists who are concerned about their water but have no factual basis, are the ones who show up to the city council meetings. Please, if you see something coming up, please look at my website. Make sure you are at the meeting so they can have common sense solutions." (The next line is the film makers and then you again.) "That is a very good point. Sometimes these meetings some of you know and know very well, sometimes these meetings get dominated by very large voices of people who know nothing, and it could sound to the people who are coming to the meeting that that is the dominant voice or the prevailing opinion." "Be the one out there with the posters that say frack here frack now."
What community college did this writer drop out of?
I'd delete my comment if I could. I see now the 60/20/20 split and that open space acquisition wouldn't lessen.
I very much respect Mr. Skorman's opinion, but I'm curious about the open space part of this that seems to be left out of the discussion. Why not use that money sitting there to buy open space... and let it sit. Minimal if any maintenance. A green belt, nay patchwork quilt of green. We're sprawling, and all the open fields are disappearing. Buy up plots before they're paved.
As is, seems the only option being discussed are traditional parks that need a lot of resources.
Clearly people's experiences vary at COS, and feedback for any business is best heard through many channels. This is not a "who's right / who's wrong" situation. When the airport works, it's a "jewel," no doubt. But it needs to work for more people than not in order to transcend diamond in the rough status. The daily reports this today: http://www.gazette.com/articles/year-15280…
Well Mr Rich Tosches you have shown why I despise so called open minded truth seeking journalist like yourself. You have never served in the military and I am personally offended that you call yourself Ranger as I wore that title with PRIDE in my serve both when assigned to the Battalion and tab after leaving the Batt. I will attempt to enlighten you as to several statements that you made that shows how grossly uneducated you truly are. (1) An assault Rifle is a military weapon that has the ability to fire either fully automatic, or the ability to fire a burst or rounds. (2) the AR in AR-15 stand for Auto-loading Rifle. (3) A Rifle with an internal magazine uses a clip the AR-15 and other such rifles use a magazine that are loaded into a magazine well. Lastly Gun bans, magazine limitations, just do not work. If you did any real research you will discover that these active shooter encounters are the new form of suicide by cop, either the Police will kill these people or they kill themselves. If you truly want to limit gun violence that we as a society should look at a mandatory firearms sentence when a firearm is used in the commission of a crime. This Firearms sentence must be served in full before they even begin the sentence for the crime they committed. Further this firearms sentence does not count towards good time or parole.
