Re: “The first year of many lasts

Pipe down, Clara. Your comment is obnoxious and this writing is great.

Re: “The first year of many lasts

This is sentimental claptrap and it is particularly unfortunate coming from two journalists. Any parent who has healthy children should rejoice as they move forward in life. There are too many parents, including one profiled in this issue, who have to face dealing with development delays in their children. In many of those cases, those children will never be able to go to the toilet by themselves, speak , eat without assistance, much less participate in sports or any other number of activities. Go tour a school with a profoundly handicapped program, talk to those parents, teachers and aides and get some idea what real pain is. Then write a column on that instead of wallowing..

Re: “The first year of many lasts

This hits so close to home. There should be support groups for this. Really. But friends like Joanna make the transition less painful. Having someone that gets it, really gets it, the way no one else can, is soul-saving. Thanks for this post. It is spot on.

Re: “Fake news, from trusted sources

Great column Laura and appalling irresponsibility on part of Crime Stoppers. Not sure what is worse...leaving fake info up or stonewalling simple questions.

Re: “The 'teachers' in this lab are dead

Superb writing Independent! How could it not be? Jim and Bonnie are incredible, passionate, kind and really know their stuff!!! I have been Jim's patient for over two years and love every weekly session, sometimes two sessions, that I have. Acupuncture has provided so many healthy benefits for me. I'll be switching from an organ donor to a full body donor. It would be very helpful to know how to make donations to the lab. I was surprised the article did not have that information. To have such a unique and positive educational program here in our beautiful city is so awesome. I personally am ready to make a donation. Who else is with me?

Re: “The 'teachers' in this lab are dead

Great article! Jim was my acupuncturist. There's a reason he is so good- he knows his anatomy like no other.

Re: “The fourth estate is in peril

The so-called Fourth Estate has fallen for its own "everybody is a victim" nonsense when the real cause is that they've become lazy and cheap. By becoming aggregation platforms and media conglomerates they have lost sight of what it means to be news organizations. Research, fact-finding, and the use of credible sources have been replaced by rumor, innuendo and the citing of the trend of Tweets as some sort of public fact barometer. That crap is not news and thoughtful people can see right through it. The only way to regain respectability is to abandon your lazy habits of the last decade and spend your money on reporters and true journalists - not opinion writers and blowhards. This publication is a case in point, as it has one true journalist - Pam Zubeck - yet it has dozens on the payroll who also dubiously claim the title.

Re: “The fourth estate is in peril

"Journalists on the whole might not be the most likable people, but dishonest they are not."

Hmmm... guess your journalistic education never included "yellow journalism" (1890s), Joseph Pulitzer, William Randolph Hearst, etc. The truth, whether you like it or not, is that most journalism is biased and sensationalized.

Love the article, Laura!

Re: “Promposals challenge teen boys

So many things are changing. You don't even have to preserve the corsages for keepsakes anymore. We bought wood flower corsages from a local company, Eco Chic Bouquets, for my son's and his date's corsage and boutonnire.

Re: “The fourth estate is in peril

I concur with the Smith legacy. I taught Alissa and Sam -- they never let other people do their thinking for them. Salut -- fight the good fight.

Re: “Anyone but Trump

And just how do you think, or suspect (or whatever it is you call your thought process) that Sharia law is coming to a nice little, well-armed, rabidly evangelical burg like Colorado Springs, bobo?

Bobo, you are a perfect example of what damage that ignorant, poison spewing mysogynist Trump has done. I am sorry for you! It is a terrible thing leaving in fear.

Re: “Anyone but Trump

Thanks Laura. This is one very important crappy behavior of Trump. Match that with him knowing more than the generals about ISIS, widespread deportation and anti-Planned Parenthood/abortion stance. I have already submitted my ballot and voted for Hillary. And LONG LIVE RBG!

Re: “Anyone but Trump

The current hysteria over sharia reminds me of the campaign against the presidential candidacy of Al Smith in 1928, when paranoid opponents claimed, if he were to win the race, the pope would end up ruling America and imposing Catholicism on all citizens.

Re: “Anyone but Trump

So you fail to mention what Bill Clinton was doing with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval office. Then all the other women that came out and said he either had affairs with, fondaled, assaulted and or raped them over the years, as Hillary supported him by trying to discredit or destroy them. Hummmmm I don't really see the balance in your reasoning.

Re: “Anyone but Trump

So bobo, are you really that scared of the islamists that you think they can take down the USA? Sorry, but I have way more faith in this country than that. Ain't no way those two bit $#!^heads could ever pose a real threat to this great mighty nation. The terror you're showing in that you're scared of their takeover is exactly what they want, but in a nation where Christianity is seen as overly strict, I don't see extreme wahhibism catching on anytime soon.

Re: “Is Gazette selling its political coverage?

So its okay to be politically biased if you don't get paid for it? Sorry, but true journalists are objective observers - something that has been increasingly lacking at the CSIndy for the last few years.

As for the Gazette, about the only truth we can agree upon is that its coverage now leans precipitously towards money - regardless of who provides it.
