Re: “Best of 2009: Sparkle and shine

In my opinion, Bluestar offers dishes that cater to a delicate palate in a casual dining atmosphere. A bit pricy but enjoyable meals that wont break you like more expensive options that will leave feeling hungry. I enjoy the chef specials from main dishes to desserts.

Re: “Blind faith

Most important to me is Jon's ethics. He suits up and shows up through thick and thin. Jon's a real family guy working not only to make a living, but also to make the community better. He is a great guy trying to make a go of it, has a baby on the way, so get out there and support his shop. God Bless you and Megan!

Re: “Fool's gold

Thank you Rich for delivering our 2 minutes hate for today. Doug Bruce certainly fills in for the part of Emmanuel Goldstein rather well for your demented little circus. What would you do if not for Mr. Bruce? Surely you would have to create a Doug Bruce of your own to pillory and despise at every turn. Someone to blame every flaw and fault upon. Someone to point fingers at and bellow so the fanatical faithful need not look too close at the failures of your own side.

Re: “Fool's gold

No comments in THIS? Maybe it's not sporting in some way. Shooting at drugged, tied down targets whose heads are superglued to the muzzle of the gun.

But think about it... If Bruce DOES wing the mayor's race... he'll be easy to find at least. Just look for the crowd of villagers with pitchforks and torches. Then look beyond that to any closet or restroom nearby. Open the door slightly, say "It's OK, Doug, they've left".

That would be cruel, but necessary.

Re: “Complete Readers' Poll Results

Great resources! BTW, here's another helpful website for buying glasses online: http://www.bestbuyeyeglasses.com - perfect for shoppers who eye high end labels but on a limited budget. The site features an extensive collection of designer eyeglasses, sunglasses, frames and lenses at huge markdowns. Now you can get designer glasses you want at prices you can afford.

Re: “Best of 2009: Frolicking

As far as bands go I think you the independent should decide who is the best bands in the springs instead of basing it on a vote. Take the nominees and go a watch them and then decide.

Re: “Best of 2009: Sparkle and shine

YEah right! I'm sick of hearing how "great" the food at the Broadmoor is. It's sub par at BEST. For the reputation they have the food seems pretty blah.

Re: “Best of 2009: Frolicking

Mel82, thanks for the note. We erroneously printed the phone number for the Wallahee Lounge (which has replaced Hooked on Hookah on Cheyenne Road). The Web site is now updated with the correct 886-7107 number.

Re: “Best of 2009: Sparkle and shine

Blue Star can't even touch restaurants like Walters Bistro, The Summit, The Penrose Room, Charles Court, The Cliff House Dining Room etc. Someone been busy stuffing the ballot box.

Re: “Best of 2009: Frolicking

Hooked on Hookah's phone number is 719-886-7107, the number on here is incorrect. If anyone has any questions give them a call! Congratulations Shady and Ramy!

Re: “Haute Cuisine: First-Place Winners

I'll bet the guards at the Nazi Concentration Camps were real lovable guys too. Probably had families, friends and children. They weren't some kind of demons. But that doesn't mean they were in the right and that old excuse of "I was just following orders" don't cut it anymore.

Re: “Haute Cuisine: First-Place Winners

Wow. I know that a lot of people disagree with the policies out government has set out, but I'm more than a little shocked and offended at your judgmental, harsh, and frankly hateful tone. To judge an entire class of people who sign up to put their lives at risk so that you can sit back and criticize them is tasteless at best and malicious at worst. Rather than encourage you in your Limbaugh-esque diatribe (another hate monger who speaks only negatively with no regard for truth or even reality), I'm going to sign off by saying that, with no equivocation, no exception, and no room for debate, you're wrong in assigning those traits to our soldiers. You're absolutely wrong. The men and women in our military are not perfect, they are not flawless, and they are just as likely to make mistakes as the next person. They are also brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, and friends who vote Democrat and Republican, who fight when they have to, who miss their families when they're separated, who do the best they can, and who deserve more than someone like you.

Re: “Haute Cuisine: First-Place Winners

Well, I suppose if you're going to have delusions you may as well go for the really satisfying one. People join the military because they have no hope of finding a good job where they grew up and weren't smart enough for a college scholarship. When we take these losers and ship them over to a war zone they play out a combination of their Steven Segal fantasies and their most depraved sexual predatory natures. Such a great model of what America is all about. Yeah, thank you so very much for that.

Re: “Haute Cuisine: First-Place Winners

Ok, can I just say that for an article about the best of what Colorado Springs has to offer, I'm seeing a lot of the worst of this city. You can disagree with the policies and politics of the military, but don't trash the soldiers. I don't agree with it either, but I won't tell those in my family who've bravely agreed to take on a responsbility I would never choose that their choice is one that makes them bad people. For those who don't know, when you join the military you don't get to pick and choose the issues you are willing to fight for. You say, "I'm here, I'm willing to stand up for my country, and I'm going to do it to the best of my ability." Not, "I'm here, I'm willing to stand up, but only if we can run through the pros and cons of each issue first." The ones who are responsbile for that are those in charge of our government, not our soldiers. You wouldn't blame an assembly line worker for the failures of GM, would you? Don't blame the men and women who fight for us for the past mistakes of previous administrations.

Re: “Haute Cuisine: First-Place Winners

What exactly am I supposed to thank a soldier for? Thank you for executing policies that make Americans hated worldwide. Thank you for blowing up those annoying brown people who are stupidly sitting on our resources. Thank you for torturing prisoners and sending pics to your buddies so the world can know how barbaric we Americans can be. Gee, I have so much to thank those soldiers for. I'm so proud to be an American.
