If you work downtown the dress code is set either by the sleazy attorneys in shiny suits and thin soled shoes or homeless people in combat gear and beards.
So given neither of those groups are respectable, a dress code of blue jeans, clean shirt, and jacket seems the ticket for respectable, tax paying citizens who work for a living.
AWESOME! Rich is my new hero. Go Chargers.
Hey, ABQ has just as much great good, restaurants and culture as Santa Fe. You should visit sometime.
Regarding "Too much bigotry" I will let the facts speak for themselves. Newly elected city council person Helen Collins had this to say to Focus On The Family when asked "Do you support or oppose having the mayor issue a proclamation in support of the annual gay pride parade?”
"No mayor would speak for the city in welcoming celebrations of perversion. I would vote against any such resolution or statement on the city council. I personally support traditional families and marriage, and I oppose publicly endorsing such “diversity.”
She furthermore refused to answer ANY of the questions sent to here regarding equality in Colorado Springs.

Water law here in the west is byzantine and bizarre beyond belief - stranger than a Ranger Rich column. When major amounts of water are delivered by the SDS, can that water be used by the farm?
John, you have been taking shots at Council for years. Where's your sympathy for the losers since being a council loser yourself. I remember your non re election. You've been pushing Ms. Williams down our throats for years to cover her inadequacies and flat personality. Senator King beat her because District 3 didn't want someone who has been divorced multiple times before the age of 35, is an unemployed engineer, lives off her wealthy ranching family, moved into the district for the job, wanted to shut down Drake, and is spending our taxpayers money on feel good green projects. She has aligned herself with Martin, Hente, Snyder, and Bennett on many liberal votes and can no longer call herself a Republican or has Republican support. King only decided to run because Czelatko wasn't. She will have a political future. King didn't go after Williams, the citizens and utility workers did. They wanted her out for her poor leadership. Leigh and Dougan were idiots and an embarrassment to Council. No one could have helped them. Collins is a clone of Bruce and Dougan's extreme conservatism and will help keep this City in the toilet. This new Council is old, white, and cheap. I doubt we will see improvements in this Council anymore then the last one or the one before that. Im glad to see that most of your predictions for Council were wrong, again.
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.
