Re: “Virgin Tales

I just saw this documentary and I resoundingly disagree with the writer's synopsis. The writer's bias is obvious and sadly, he missed the entire point.
His final sentence is critical and telling when he writes, "the religious right is grooming a young generation of virgins to embody an evangelically grounded "Utopia in America." That was NOT the point of the documentary!
Christians, Evangelicals know, beyond a doubt that Utopia could NEVER exist here on earth first of all, because we live in a world where sin exists. And, second, the Wilson family's emphasis is on a loving relationship with God for themselves then, protecting, teaching and mentoring their children on the importance of living a life that is pleasing to God.
To spread the love of God to a world that is exploding with hatred and violence is a very good thing but not, it seems, to the writer of this synopsis.

Re: “China Town

Excellent food, wonderful service! A very nice touch was they gave us a warm towel to wash your hands. Took my Aunt here for a very nice quiet lunch around 1:30pm on a Wednesday. We both found our meals to be superb. The servers were very attentive but not hovering. There were several other tables present when we arrived and several more came in as we finished. They were setting up for dinner, changing over to linen table cloths and napkins. In my opinion it would be a nice romantic dinner place. I would also like to mention when I requested chop sticks I was not given the wooden throw away kind, I was handed a nice, balanced pair of chop sticks. Wonderful experience.

Re: “Organica Herb & Tea Co.

Fabulous spices! More importantly, great natural products for optimizing the body's ability to heal itself. I am feeling better, increasingly more active and am off pain meds. So grateful to have found Organica!

Re: “Johnny's Navajo Hogan

Dale,

We are all Americans at this point. If someone is Irish they might like the drink as much as an Indian, or a Scot or a Kraut. Take responsibility for yourself and don't blame a bunch of folks having a drink and good meal in a place that has such amazing architecture, of which you should be proud.

Re: “Thai Mint

Best Thai in the Springs by far! We've tried several other Thai restaurants in town and always end up returning to Thai Mint to get our fix. The panang curry is flavorful and spicy and always consistent. If you become a regular you might end up being taught how to say thank you very much in Thai:)

Re: “Thai Mint

Small, friendly, reasonably priced, and unpretentious, the food at Thai Mint is excellent and flavorful. You pick the heat or order mild and every dish is cooked fresh. Thai Mint is a Thai food lover's dream on the north side of town....

Re: “Original Cannabis Growers

I think this place is just wonderful. They have some of the best bud I have ever had. They have such good prices. And your price is no different then the member price. They don't have upper or lower shelf prices. They are all the same price. Specials all the time. The bud is out of sight I'm telling you. It is a little hard to find. But, boy was it worth it. Its down the street from the western gas station on Platte. The shop is actually on Saint Vrain. You have to check this place out. You won't be disappointed :-)
