Re: “Suthers scores HBA endorsement

Ummm...80923, you live in the very zip code you seem to hate. Sprawl happens. Embrace it.

Re: “FAC takes a different path

I have no quibble with David Dahlin personally--I have great respect for what Compassion Intl does. The biggest challenge for the new CEO is that the funding models of CI and the FAC are completely opposite, and the latter's cannot be reversed. Compassion built its org one $30/mo donor at a time, without much help from major donors (to this day). The FAC will never be able to sell enough memberships to float the organization; it needs $5,000+ donors to survive. If you doubt me, check the two orgs' 990s. CI's admin and fundraising expenses are less than 20% of its income (80% to programs), while the FAC spends over 50% of its gifts on admin and fundraising. When you factor in how much it costs to maintain a crumbling building, the FAC is only able to spend a small portion of every dollar on actual programming.

Re: “FAC takes a different path

So they replaced a Mormon who didn't like being at donor events where alcohol was served with an evangelical who has no arts experience? RIP, FAC.

Re: “Homeless plan coming from Mayor Bach in January

Yes, the mayor is a two-bit tyrant, but let's be honest-the homeless generally aren't needed among the general population. Why not create a free camp for them to stay in south of town. Restaurants can drop off leftover food. They can pee wherever they want and live in tents. Free rent and food and they don't bother everybody else.

Re: “Gappmayer's left the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, so what's next?

Gappmayer did it with smoke and mirrors and he left as it was catching up with him.

Re: “Chicken out at National Same-Sex Kiss Day

Sorry, Bryce, but don't try to re-define "sectarian." Actually, those who are in favor of same-sex marriage are the sectarians. The majority of Americans oppose confusing the definition of marriage.
