    What do you think about all the money being poured into local school board races? It's a good thing, because certainly people aren't going to get interested in education unless there's some kind of driving force behind. But in other ways, money means politics and politics, especially for education, is not usually a good thing.

    What do you think about the bitter fight over Referenda C & D? It's insane. If enough people did their research on it, that they would find out that it's a good idea and that in the whole scheme of things Colorado Springs does not pay that much in taxes.

    What are your predictions for the outcome? Part of me hopes that it will come out in the positive, but the trend in Colorado Springs tells me otherwise.

    What's the deal with all these hurricanes? Divine intervention.

It'll be good for our public schools and the - public institutions in the state. -  - What are your predictions for the outcome? It's - going to - pass, from what I hear around town. I think it'll be a tight - vote. -  - What's the deal with all these hurricanes?

Yes. I - think that - he's about as corrupt as any politician on Capitol Hill. I - hope that he's convicted, and I hope he's sent to jail.

    What do you think about Referenda C & D? I'm pulling for it to pass. It'll be good for our public schools and the public institutions in the state.

    What are your predictions for the outcome? It's going to pass, from what I hear around town. I think it'll be a tight vote.

    What's the deal with all these hurricanes? Like it or not, the evidence is out there that says that our planet's warming up and that we need to start taking a long, hard look at some long-term solutions to prevent global warming.

    Should The Hammer go to the slammer? Yes. I think that he's about as corrupt as any politician on Capitol Hill. I hope that he's convicted, and I hope he's sent to jail.

I - think that - it's going to pass, both of them. -  - What's the deal with all these hurricanes? I - think it's God - pouring out his wrath upon the land, to be 100 percent - honest. -  - Should The Hammer go to the slammer? No. - There's a - little thing in the Constitution called ex post facto. When - these allegations allegedly occurred, it was legal for it to - happen.

    What do you think about the bitter fight over Referenda C & D?

    C seems to have lots of positive advantages to it, but I am going to vote against D because it creates debt in non-revenue-producing areas.

    What are your predictions for the outcome? I think that it's going to pass, both of them.

    What's the deal with all these hurricanes? I think it's God pouring out his wrath upon the land, to be 100 percent honest.

    Should The Hammer go to the slammer? No. There's a little thing in the Constitution called ex post facto. When these allegations allegedly occurred, it was legal for it to happen.

I like the ideas and concepts, and I - think they should pass. -  - What's the deal with all these hurricanes? - Weather - happens everywhere. You could ask, "What's the deal - with sunny weather here?" It's just the nature of weather - and cyclic weather patterns. -  - Should The Hammer go to the slammer? No. I - don't know - all the facts on it, but from what I've gathered, there's - not really anything to convict him of, and it's more of a - political move to slander him and his political party.
