Hey Nicole, do some research. Drake does run on natural gas.

Re: “To be frank...

Adrian's comment to Martin, "Some people feel ... Like City for Champions .... Here you had powerful people who owned ...etc " hits the bulls eye. The goal of City Leaders and URA property owners - primarily Jenkins - is to build skyscrapers for the 5% of the population who can afford to lease/buy condos and office space with an unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico. It's hoped by the downtown business owners that the 5% will walk a few blocks to Tejon and spend mega dollars at their restaurants and retail stores. The downtown business owners are deluded. The 5% - including Jenkins - now live in the Broadmoor area and they aren't likely to relocate to downtown, no matter how many penthouses are built.

For Jenkins and City Leaders to accomplish their skyscraper goal they need an anchor. They want to build a stadium but - and here's their problem - they don't want to pay the $200M themselves. So they've concocted the TIF scheme to build a stadium using OUR sales tax revenue without asking OUR permission to do so and despite OUR disapproval and opposition to squandering revenue that should only be spent on necessary items, like paving the streets.

Thanks, Adrian, for making this observation, to which Martin replied, "Maybe I'm naïve". No, Martin is not naïve. She's favors building a stadium. And, as she also says, she favors raising taxes so that there's money available to pave the streets, water the parks, and the other things that city govt is supposed to do. We don't need more taxes to grow city govt. Don't build the stadium and instead use the $200M to pave the streets.

Re: “Gay tolerance divides Skorman, Bach in mayoral debate

It seem like all I read about any more is, "Merl Will Wallace, Merl Will Wallace, Merl Will Wallace". I am really fed up about reading about this turd burgler! I hope the next President deports this F Stick to some foreign "cuntry" so I don't have to read about him or his private parts again!

Re: “Gay tolerance divides Skorman, Bach in mayoral debate

Jesus, you know, that Merl Will Wallace can be a real freak. I went on a tour with him and his wife. One night he got rip snorting drunk, squirted Elmer's glue on his nut sack and dipped his balls in red and purple glitter. He then ran around the open fire screaming and whooping like an Indian. F, it scared the piss out of everyone. One more thing, I kind of thought his weiner looked like Arthur Godfrey!

Re: “Sen. Bennet knocks Gazette advertisement

Oh, I forgot to mention, as a, gosh, maybe I should say: my sexuality is personal and no ones business. My sexual drive seems pretty inconsequential when I think of all the love I have for nature and other inhabitants of this jewel of a planet we share...and, my mind sometimes seems much too large.

Re: “Sen. Bennet knocks Gazette advertisement

These religious fanatics and the Gazette stooping to such depths only reflects small mindedness. Our species has more important things to focus on. Best to ignore these types, cancel your subscriptions. Industry mostly listens to the clink of the coin and religious fanatics like this will always have tiny minds.

Our 'Industrial Age' has run rampant with few restraints. I work for one of the largest corporations in the U.S. and abroad. They are listening and have a grasp of what direction those of us who are not 'small minded' want. They are aware of 'times they are a changing'.

Home Depot recently opened their 2,200 doors to organics. However, out of the hundreds of thousands of customers who come in only a small percentage know what switching to organic means to our environment and the inhabitants we share our planet with. As I tread the isles the organic products and myself are swimming in a sea of Monsanto.

The mind set of the average customer is stuck in a 'kill everything mode'. Example: One customer had two pups in her cart. One a young golden retriever and then a small terrier mix. She was in the 'kill isle' to look for something to kill crab grass. She mentioned that her other golden died of cancer. I pointed her to a safer organic product...which, after reading the label, she said, "it doesn't kill crab grass'. So she bought the same Monsanto product she's been using for years. I smiled and pat the two pups before she left.

Re: “Sen. Bennet knocks Gazette advertisement

Am going to let my subscription run out as well. I have been a subscriber for 35 years ever since the bastards bought out the Colorado Springs Sun. The Gazette has become nothing but a print version of Fox "news". Adios Gazette.

Re: “Todd Rundgren

And by the way, Todd Rundgren did not talk at all to the audience. He did not smile, laugh, joke, talk about the Springs, give a little background of his album, or once say hello. He did not say one word to the audience. I've never seen a performing artist do this and be so aloof to the people who came to see him perform. Maybe he just doesn't care what the audience thinks???

And what does it mean, "He sorta sang a few oldies", as if having sorta sang a few oldies made his performance sorta worth waiting to the end for.

Re: “Sen. Bennet knocks Gazette advertisement

I actually did follow through, and cancelled my Gazette subscription this morning. I can't support a publication that would print an ad like that and which publishes the editorials that they do, including "Clearing the Haze". This city is much more diverse than is reflected in their far right, one sided editorials.

Re: “This just in: left-lane driver offended

Oh my god, it all makes sense. Anyone who has the time to hand-write a letter defending over-cautious driving has nothing productive to do. I would probably drive slow too if I didn't have a timeframe or specific destination.

Re: “Sen. Bennet knocks Gazette advertisement

Thankfully.. not all Christians are holier-than-thou and know Christ came to heal the sick.. not the "healthy" that think they're above others because they can quote the bible word-for-word.
Sadly.. hate and intolerance are hate and intolerance, regardless of which side it comes from. One is no better than the other.

Re: “To be frank...

Jan, I honor your service to our community, your dedication for all of these years giving your time, talents and abilities representing your fellow citizens in the face of bigotry, small-mindedness and continual controversy.

I for the life of me can't figure out how we get people to run for an office that offers such a a bevy of fantastic perks, and $6,250 a year for the pleasure but I am deeply appreciative of your efforts.

Our rides together supporting the Bike to Work Day Breakfast events on the tandem have been highlights of my time here in Colorado Springs, getting the chance to share with you the beauty and possibility of our community together during the ride, even for the short morning hour was a always good for my heart and soul.

Looking forward to seeing the impact you will make in many other ways in the upcoming years, thank you for you being you.

Your tandem pilot,

Allen

Re: “Sen. Bennet knocks Gazette advertisement

Ahem, I was born right the first time. Don't need your hand me down words.

When Christians can't put a salient thought together without invoking fear how are rational people supposed to look at this other than complete nonsense.

Move out of the bronze age and try to embrace some common sense.

Re: “Sen. Bennet knocks Gazette advertisement

Homosexual Agenda??? Religious Freedom??? What ever happen to your religion being your PERSONAL belief system with your PERSONAL SAVIOR and not your bs church doctrines you're putting onto other folks that are different believing then you are? Remember folks, we are ALL born in sin because of Adam's disobedience and Christ came to put an end to sin nature in mankind as a whole.

Again, these folks don't even consider LGBTIQ having the possibility to be "Believers" or Born Again, just like they are. Can't wait for the Return of Christ and the look on their disbelieving faces when they see all of the good folks that are included in the Rapture, like me a Christian lesbian / former Pentecostal lay-minister! LMAO!!!

Re: “Trail Etiquette

Thank you, Odin. I apologize for saying you were wrong. Indeed, I am amused, because the American Heritage Dictionary identifies the word as a plural noun, but immediately adds "used with singular or plural verb." I wondered why a plural noun may be used with a singular verb, but, as you wrote, "some dictionaries" accept this usage, meaning not all of them agree. I believe this is a case where popular usage of the singular verb with this particular noun is so widespread that it is slowly becoming acceptable, as was the case formerly with the word "ain't." Since both forms are accepted, I will be conservative and stick with the plural verb.

Re: “ACME Bar & Grill

Love this place!!! Can't wait to see what the weekly specials will bring my taste buds, from bacon-wrapped meatloaf to shrimp margarita to some kind of bizarre, delicious take on breakfast, this bar & grill fulfills every type of craving that I might bring to the bar/table! Love the bourbon-take on Moscow Mule and the many other drinks that a previously non-bourbon lover LOVES !!! Thanks to ACME for getting my bourbon and eats fix on!!!
