Re: “Tool punishes the Pepsi Center — the band at its best

Great show, some recycled video was a tad disappointing, and no Descending was a big disappointment. Maynard sounded great on new songs but he sounded off on some of the older stuff. Still a great show, especially if you could see Danny kill every song as usual.

Re: “Recall fails against Sen. Leroy Garcia; only 4 signatures submitted

Anybody calculate how much time republicans spend:

1) Taking care of the people's business?
2) Trying to keep democrats out of office?

Re: “Recall fails against Sen. Leroy Garcia; only 4 signatures submitted

Outside of #2 the whole thing is patently absurd.

Re: “Anonymity leads to atrocious behavior

Sooo....what you are saying is that anonymity does not lead to atrocious behavior. A nice thing with anonymity is that is gives people the opportunity to speak their mind without the fear of being attacked. While that can be a double edged sword, I would rather that people have the freedom to speak their mind than to have them be subject to virtual and even real world attacks.

I tried NextDoor for a while and ended up leaving.

Re: “Anonymity leads to atrocious behavior

Thank you for bringing attention to the issue of cyberbullying. It is so sad to see grown adults attacking and bullying one another especially when the topic revolves around our kids educational needs. Not exactly good role models!

Lauren, you have been a wonderful advocate for digital kindness and truly an asset to our community on many levels. Hoping those who engage in cyberbullying will realize it is of no benefit to society and it would be best to agree to disagree without harmful personal attacks.

Re: “National Mill Dog Rescue faces state investigations, claims of questionable practices

Its interesting that the , whistle blower is Jene Nelson, who is a journalist. I guess she wanted notoriety for her ego. This is how she will make herself famous, at the cost of taking time and money away from the dogs NMDR is trying to rescue

Re: “Law enforcement is targeting the homeless

4 things:
1)America never treated people this bad during the Depression.
2)Disability isn't enough to rent a place.
3) Being homeless limits ones ability to travel.
4) I would love to leave Colorado Springs and El Paso county. I've never seen a city as evil as Colorado Springs or a county as corrupt as El Paso. Colorado Springs is no longer any type of "righteous" city. It lacks compassion and mercy and deserves to be destroyed by fire, the only way to purge something evil. Hopefully with the fire warnings, it will eventually catch on fire. Maybe the homeless will get militant and help. We need a good homeless civil rights movement. Maybe if they start burning this city, it will learn it's lesson. I seriously doubt it. It's about the money, not about justice or anything like that.

Forget about the Statue of Liberty

Liberty for whom?

The homeless given a choice of shelter or jail, or everyone else?

Not everyone is homeless by choice.

Statue of Liberty
The torch is a symbol of enlightenment. The Statue of Liberty's torch lights the way to freedom showing us the path to Liberty. Even the Statue's official name represents her most important symbol "Liberty Enlightening the World".

The New Colossus
Emma Lazarus - 1849-1887

"Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Sure, elect Mark Waller. While your at it, go find a fox to watch your hen house as well.

Re: “Engine 168 rolls again

This is good news. As they are more powerful than the diesels we use today, I am a big fan of steam engines. Also, for what it's worth, the national government is putting a lot of steam engines back onto the track.

Re: “Anonymity leads to atrocious behavior

I appreciate your advocacy for dispassionate, reasoned, and respectful discussions of public issues such as this one. It can be hard to focus on our common goal of a better community when we often disagree on how to achieve this.

Re: “District attorney candidates bring in the cash

The men and women of Classic Homes are not donating to Waller because they think hes a competent attorney. Its so they can ask favors on their projects. Dont mistake that.

Shouldn't that say "former guide?"

Decline to take part in saying there is one. Decline personally and editorially. That is a primary step.

Can you at least attempt to match the picture to the story. They're doing Avalanche training here at least last spring.

Re: “Anonymity leads to atrocious behavior

human nature leads to mob mentality... if no one counters the loud obnoxious people with facts then we end up more stupid.

a lot of this is due to the p@$$y grabber in chief that spews inaccurate vitriol constantly. finally he will pay for his lies and "alternative fact" lovers he places in positions of power. thank goodness for this reality show clown's impending impeachment!!!!

perhaps we can live in a reality based world once again.

Weak candidate fields are becoming the norm. No matter who one votes for, the result will be yet another Dan May clone

It's time to get rid of establishment, career politicians like Waller, who are propped up by developers. So gross.

Re: “Anonymity leads to atrocious behavior

Being that you are working for D38s bond initiative, how much did you get paid to write this one sided article?

And why not give actual examples of this hate you write about? I bet for every example you point out I can find 2 from the pro bond mob.

Re: “Homeless shelters wield more resources than ever

low barrier? do they show an ID? do they help clean up after the stay? do they do anything of worth for our community?

if not.... WHY NOT!! there are lots of places where their buddies have trashed areas that need to be cleaned up.

not too much to ask for some kind of work for a place to stay for as long as they want...
