    What's the strangest thing about Colorado Springs? Its unpredictability. My family has been in the retail and restaurant business here for years, and it's impossible to predict what people will do. On New Year's, for example, will they stay home or go out?

    Name something that President Bush should publicly admit. His poor management skills, especially in Iraq.

    You're obviously not from Colorado Springs if ... you have an open mind and think for yourself.

    What's your foremost faux pas of '05? I dropped and broke a thousand-dollar plate.

    Name the nicest thing you did last year. Helping neighbors clean up their place after a storm.

    What's the strangest aspect of Colorado Springs? The elevation. Coming into this town from Salida does something to your inner pressure that causes you to lose your temper.

    To what should President Bush fess up? That he doesn't know enough to be president and can't cut it.

    Cheyenne Caon

    Writer and publicist

    What was your smartest move of '05? I self- published my book.

    What's the stupidest? I failed to promote it.

    The strangest thing about our fair city is ... the demographics. The fundamentalist Christians, the military and the liberals reside in different worlds inside the same city.

    Bush should confess that ... he was totally wrong to go into Iraq, and that he's unqualified to be president.
