Re: “Strawberry Fields appraisal needs fresh look, citizens say

We who live on the backside of the hotel were supposed to get beautiful Brownstones as a nice transition to their convention center back in 2004. But take a look at what is happening now. A seven acre dirt parking lot has existed since then and the nearby residents must deal with their trash and dirt, hear their trucks, shuttles and their chaos. Plans change and our city government does not care what happens to residents in the area. Acrimony exists and will continue to haunt that hotel. A residential neighborhood surrounds them that must not be ignored.

Re: “Philip Anschutz's influence knows no bounds

Take a look at what the neighborhood looks like on the backside of the convention center. I was fooled into thinking the billionaire would make things beautiful. But it's all about them. Nothing else. Ever. The hotel was once a beautiful gem so many of us adored. Now we look at their trash, deal with their dirt on our properties, hear their buses and shuttles and their chaos. These are not good business practices especially while situated in a residential neighborhood. Our acrimony will deservedly continue to haunt them.

Re: “Reader: Sorry, not sorry

Mike B:

7 years? I thought he had 4 (if he doesn't self immolate before that).

If you think he will be reelected in 2020, you haven't been paying attention. He'll no doubt get his 35% base, including you. Beyond that, though, he has insulted, aggravated, and energized everyone else. They will show up to vote against him in 2020.

I didn't vote for Trump (surprise, right?). But once elected, he has to serve and govern. He's doing that, and it was entirely foreseeable how that would work out (it didn't and it won't). We're doomed to 4 years of chaos, cronyism, petty pouting, and a very large dose of incompetence, but voters will have had their fill long before 2020.

Did you hear the one about the Democratic Senator in Alabama? No. It's not a joke. It's a preview of elections under the leadership of President Trump.

Re: “Reader: Gender-cleansing our political landscape is essential

This isn't isolated to politics and entertainment. Women are motivating to run for office!

Mike45 is busy listening the 'white power hour'.
