Re: “See Floyd Tunson works May 1 during First Friday

This is pretty sweet. Both Floyd Tunson and Wylene Carol were my teachers at Palmer.

Thanks for filling the world with art!

Hey Nicole, do some research. Drake does run on natural gas.

Re: “To be frank...

Adrian's comment to Martin, "Some people feel ... Like City for Champions .... Here you had powerful people who owned ...etc " hits the bulls eye. The goal of City Leaders and URA property owners - primarily Jenkins - is to build skyscrapers for the 5% of the population who can afford to lease/buy condos and office space with an unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico. It's hoped by the downtown business owners that the 5% will walk a few blocks to Tejon and spend mega dollars at their restaurants and retail stores. The downtown business owners are deluded. The 5% - including Jenkins - now live in the Broadmoor area and they aren't likely to relocate to downtown, no matter how many penthouses are built.

For Jenkins and City Leaders to accomplish their skyscraper goal they need an anchor. They want to build a stadium but - and here's their problem - they don't want to pay the $200M themselves. So they've concocted the TIF scheme to build a stadium using OUR sales tax revenue without asking OUR permission to do so and despite OUR disapproval and opposition to squandering revenue that should only be spent on necessary items, like paving the streets.

Thanks, Adrian, for making this observation, to which Martin replied, "Maybe I'm naïve". No, Martin is not naïve. She's favors building a stadium. And, as she also says, she favors raising taxes so that there's money available to pave the streets, water the parks, and the other things that city govt is supposed to do. We don't need more taxes to grow city govt. Don't build the stadium and instead use the $200M to pave the streets.

Re: “Gay tolerance divides Skorman, Bach in mayoral debate

It seem like all I read about any more is, "Merl Will Wallace, Merl Will Wallace, Merl Will Wallace". I am really fed up about reading about this turd burgler! I hope the next President deports this F Stick to some foreign "cuntry" so I don't have to read about him or his private parts again!

Re: “Gay tolerance divides Skorman, Bach in mayoral debate

Jesus, you know, that Merl Will Wallace can be a real freak. I went on a tour with him and his wife. One night he got rip snorting drunk, squirted Elmer's glue on his nut sack and dipped his balls in red and purple glitter. He then ran around the open fire screaming and whooping like an Indian. F, it scared the piss out of everyone. One more thing, I kind of thought his weiner looked like Arthur Godfrey!

Re: “Sen. Bennet knocks Gazette advertisement

Oh, I forgot to mention, as a, gosh, maybe I should say: my sexuality is personal and no ones business. My sexual drive seems pretty inconsequential when I think of all the love I have for nature and other inhabitants of this jewel of a planet we share...and, my mind sometimes seems much too large.

Re: “Sen. Bennet knocks Gazette advertisement

These religious fanatics and the Gazette stooping to such depths only reflects small mindedness. Our species has more important things to focus on. Best to ignore these types, cancel your subscriptions. Industry mostly listens to the clink of the coin and religious fanatics like this will always have tiny minds.

Our 'Industrial Age' has run rampant with few restraints. I work for one of the largest corporations in the U.S. and abroad. They are listening and have a grasp of what direction those of us who are not 'small minded' want. They are aware of 'times they are a changing'.

Home Depot recently opened their 2,200 doors to organics. However, out of the hundreds of thousands of customers who come in only a small percentage know what switching to organic means to our environment and the inhabitants we share our planet with. As I tread the isles the organic products and myself are swimming in a sea of Monsanto.

The mind set of the average customer is stuck in a 'kill everything mode'. Example: One customer had two pups in her cart. One a young golden retriever and then a small terrier mix. She was in the 'kill isle' to look for something to kill crab grass. She mentioned that her other golden died of cancer. I pointed her to a safer organic product...which, after reading the label, she said, "it doesn't kill crab grass'. So she bought the same Monsanto product she's been using for years. I smiled and pat the two pups before she left.

Re: “Sen. Bennet knocks Gazette advertisement

Am going to let my subscription run out as well. I have been a subscriber for 35 years ever since the bastards bought out the Colorado Springs Sun. The Gazette has become nothing but a print version of Fox "news". Adios Gazette.

Re: “Sen. Bennet knocks Gazette advertisement

I actually did follow through, and cancelled my Gazette subscription this morning. I can't support a publication that would print an ad like that and which publishes the editorials that they do, including "Clearing the Haze". This city is much more diverse than is reflected in their far right, one sided editorials.

Re: “This just in: left-lane driver offended

Oh my god, it all makes sense. Anyone who has the time to hand-write a letter defending over-cautious driving has nothing productive to do. I would probably drive slow too if I didn't have a timeframe or specific destination.
