Re: “Stephany Rose Spaulding hopes to better represent Congressional District 5

I have known Stephany for a decade now as a fellow college instructor (Dr. Spaulding) and as a spiritual advisor (Rev. Spaulding). She brings it on ALL levels...whether getting our respective students together for Discussions groups on Race Relations (and other social issues), jointly organizing a social justice political rally, or in seeking prayer and healing in the local community reacting to crazy proposed legislation fit only for the rich and militaristic powerful few. I'm ALL IN when it comes to working with this amazing person of character and strength who is ready to represent ALL of us!

Re: “The future of science ain't what it used to be

TruB, we are not discussing an "abbreviation," but a scientific equation. You have compounded the error by substituting 'M' for 'm' (the symbol for mass) and 'C' for 'c' (the speed of light).

The formulation, "mc2," translates into "m times c times 2," whereas the equation is supposed to mean "m times c squared" or "m times c to the power of 2." In print this is indicated by the '2' being printed as a superscript. In this forum, where we do not have access to superscripts or subscripts, it is valid to use an in-line substitute, like 'c**2' or 'c^2' to indicate what you mean, but that does not apply to print.

No, that is not my only takeaway from the article. I just found it to be ironic and humorous.

Re: “Reader: Where's my protest paycheck?

I've noticed everything claimed by many conservatives actually applies to them.

Re: “Region must be proactive on transportation, and here's how to do it

This position appears to be a 'working' position. However, if among criteria considered for this job, a 'high coefficient of Schmooze' is top on the list - - then Mr. Routon is correct: Mrs. Clark would do.

Has thought been given to calling for a true administratively skilled person for this position and assigning the 'Schmooze' role to the Chamber which they do well and removing the EDC from their purview and forming a new EDC with those who can actually get the job done?

Re: “Region must be proactive on transportation, and here's how to do it

Trying to fix the Front Range transportation problem by building a wider I-25 is like trying to fix obesity by putting on a larger pair of pants - if we don't address the problem of over reliance on a single, highly-inefficient mode of travel, then it doesn't really matter who leads the effort, it will be a temporary solution at best.

Re: “13 authoritarian jokes on America

You forgot a pack of goose-stepping authoritarian atheist Storm Troopers marching into the workplaces of American business owners and ORDERING them to violate their religious beliefs or suffer a jackboot on their neck. I have others if you'd like to read them.

Re: “Stephany Rose Spaulding hopes to better represent Congressional District 5

Heard her speak at a Teller County Democratic Meeting. She is articulate, intelligent (very), impassioned, educated, and inclusive. She will make an outstanding representative for our district! Vote for her!

This position requires one with strong administrative skills, not a narcissistic political gadfly.

Re: “Reader: The Academy Chapel is a beloved national monument, you crazies

It is a beautiful chapel, an architectural achievement that should be preserved for future generations. That being said, it should also be reconstructed to better reflect the religious makeup of the cadets. Perhaps the main chapel should be catholic now, or Mormon, or perhaps a place of reflection for atheists and agnostics, and let the Protestants and Jewish and Catholics subdivide the basement. The chapel has, unfortunately, become a monument to intolerance and division and I'm quite sure any attempt to make it reflect acceptance and recognition of others religious beliefs would meet with harsh resistance.

Re: “Reader: A tale of two daughters

The new Health Care Act has not passed into law yet. There are still many potential changes to be made. Telling your readers what you will get or what you will lose is merely speculation. It would also be speculation to assume that you know what Ivanka's "goals" are. It does seem like you know Rachel. She sounds lovely.

Re: “The future of science ain't what it used to be

E=MC2 is as correct an abbreviation as is E=MC^2.
If your only take away is that you think there is a typo then you are being dRumpf.

Re: “Populism, belonging and inside jokes at Trump's reality show rally

A good read.
Makes one think about some of the terms and has a few insights like some truly just believe they are doing better. Likewise some of think the sky is falling although not much has changed other than the increased embarrassment level of citizens toward government.

It is tough to understand that so many refuse to cast their ballot.

Re: “Reader: A tale of two daughters

The actual title of the piece was "Who gets healthcare in the United States?... A tale of two daughters. The point was about putting a face to the health debate where millions on Medicaid will lose coverage. The Indy did not include the complete title which possibly leads to your question. Barbara Day

Re: “Reader: Clean out the White House

WW III huh? Really? How about fight for your sanity which has taken a vacation. If you are worried about your health and everybody else' then stop stressing yourself and spreading it. If you have children then please shut up and do not feed them your fears, it would be child abuse.

Re: “New trail and Intemann Trail re-route in Section 16 and Red Rocks Canyon

All of the cyclists and runners with whom I've spoken are upset over the new sanitized sections of Intemann Trail. The technically challenging sections that some cyclists had to carry their bikes over are what made Intemann Trail special. Why dumb it down when there are plenty of easier trails for those who prefer them in the area?

Re: “Reader: Mr. Lamborn, this downright cruel and unjust

I also remember President Obama's visit to our community after the Waldo Canyon Fire and the hypocrisy of our "Tar Baby" Representative Lamborn who never missed a photo op or refused Federal Grant money. Our conservative representative was first in line to greet President Obama when he got off Air Force One - with his hand out and a huge smile on his face. I laughed out loud at the incongruity of that optic. Lamborn standing next to President Obama with a huge smile on his face.

Re: “Reader: Mr. Lamborn, this downright cruel and unjust

Honestly do you think he cares what we think of him? Do you think he cares if he screws the poor, the down trodden or even the working class? I bet he dont lose a bit of sleep as long as his money men keep sending in them check for his reelection.
