...an amazing article for an amazing musician/human being! Ricky, Julie and family will be truly missed in Colorado Springs....oh, but what an adventure!
You can say there were no comments prior to mine all you want.....that does not make it true. There were at least a dozen comments, all in support of Dats Italian....and I am not the only one who saw them. Do you think your readers are really that stupid? I would expect this from other papers.......I am very disappointed to see this happening at the Independent.
I am compelled to write as I am not sure you actually dined in the establishment you have reviewed......I have been there on more than one occasion.....and I can say without a doubt that it is one of the best Italian restaurant's in this town. We have taken family from out of town - and they all agree. I have been in the food industry for 20+ years, and I believe that your review really was way off base. Maybe there was another motive??? Tonight we dined on two of the specials....Linguine with clams and eggplant parmesan. The Linguine with clams had the lightest, most flavorful sauce...more of a broth really.....simply exquisite. Eggplant parmesan is a dish that is very often not done correctly. This was absolutely perfect. I know that my husband and I will be regular customers, and everyone that was there this evening clearly enjoyed their meals. I am quite sure that there were comments posted on here when the article first came out.....I have to wonder what happened to them - or if MY review will even be posted.
This comment is regarding the first story....about trash service in Manitou Springs. I must say I am appaled at the following line..."It adds that the single-hauler system will provide no environmental benefit and may mean increased costs for customers." I have to ask you this Mr. Shrader......do you REALLY think the people of Manitou Springs would actually believe that????? For the record, I do not live in Manitou, but spend a great deal of time there....I have met many people who do live there and I can tell you they are far more intelligent that you give them credit for. Many states have been doing this for years, and I can tell you from experience that this (single) system works VERY well. It is about time this area starts catching up to the rest of the country. Hopefully the rest of the state will follow suit. I for one (of many) am fed up with many trash trucks on my street every day.
