Re: “Check out that new bike lane on Saturday

To the comment that Research has been turned into a two lane road, that is not true. Research is now a four lane divided thoroughfare (before it was six). Also to the comment that it is a matter of time before some gets killed. Also not true. People have already been killed on Research. One of the goals of the demo is to reduce speeds through a residential neighborhood. Hopefully the reduced speeds will save lives.

Re: “Opinion: Manitou Springs' war on hikers

I no longer park on Ruxton. Too expensive and more importantly out of respect for the residents who have to put up with Cog railway traffic anyway. I park down near Memorial Park and jog the mile and quarter up Ruxton. I have found that the jog warms up the legs and gets the blood aerated for the ascent up the Incline. Do your body (and wallet) a favor by not rolling out of the car seat and going straight up the incline.

Re: “UPDATE: Glenn boycotting Post for reporting his criminal charge

Glenn is making a mistake boycotting the debate.

When the Denver Post and other newspapers published accounts of Glenn's arrest and his conflicting responses, I gave him the benefit of the doubt. I have since accepted his explanation. I agree with Glenn that domestic violence is a deeply personal matter and that the story was poorly handled by the Post editorial board (Glenn is in good company-- a recent Post editorial criticizing Gov. Hick over a "leaked draft" on some policy proposal was also over the top-- poorly researched, full of suspicion and illogical). The Denver Post somewhat made amends by allowing Glenn to write a guest commentary for the editorial section. You can find Glenn's response on the DP site.

There many pressing issues facing the country, and as an informed voter, I can distinguish between journalistic malpractice and a serious candidate. His choice to boycott the Post and accuse them of a "smear campaign" reflects negatively on his ability to handle a controversy that was partly of his own making.

Re: “Let's talk about maps

I still have Zoltan Malocsay 1991 classic "Trails Guide to Pikes Peak Country". It too was published locally. The maps are little outdated so you should consult other sources before heading out. However, the guide contains bits of local history and is a delight to read.

Re: “WeBranded: 'Live adventure'

I'm your typical Colorado Springs blockhead. Is it pronounced "l-eye-v" adventure, or "l-eh-v" adventure? Clearly the meaning changes. Is this an object that I should object to, or have I read too much with this read of the tagline?

Re: “The Gazette: Getting it wrong

I too am sad to see the Gazette foundering. It seems it took its extreme libertarian philosophy too seriously. How can this build a top flight news team? Good luck, you're on your own. R.C. Hoiles would be proud.

Re: “Party people say No

I think the microchip that the Government implanted in William's brain told him that Norquist is a radical Islamist.
