Re: “Free speech zones rattled college campuses, but new legislation seeks to alleviate grievances

Samuel Elliott here. I want to note that I vetoed the resolution because of the language and lack of substance. Afterwards, I worked with the authors to move the concern to the admin level. At the statewide level, I helped supporters of the state bill with a backing of all 4 CU campus. Go free speech!

Re: “Reader: Suthers' quote is a staggering piece of irony

Well, he's right, but it's kind of too little, too late. We have a handful of interesting buildings in Colorado Springs that aspire to match the scenery, but most of our built environment is completely disposable and was built with that intent. Outside of the Old North End and around downtown, most of our housing and commercial stock is not ageing well. Take away Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods, and you could be anywhere in the country, most likely Stockton. Maybe if we had code based design, we could get a better aesthetic, but that would mean the City Council would have to learn about it, and so would the planning commission, and then advocate for it. But the last piece of large developable land in the county is Banning-Lewis, and that's all set to be classic sprawl, no different from anywhere else in the country, so we're stuck. Tava (Pikes Peak) deserved better. Could we give it to Switzerland?

Re: “Reader: Suthers' quote is a staggering piece of irony

Yet the mayor and the planning commission are OK with a 8 to 10 story hospital building in the line of sight of Pikes Peak. It's great that PlanCOS says we value our majestic views but council sure didn't when they approved this infill build.

Good thing I keep my fuel tune low. Very little smoke, but boy howdy does that turbo still growl at people.

Re: “Raphael Mechoulam inspires students interested in studying cannabis

I wonder how many scientific advances have been delayed because of our government's prejudice and bureaucratic intransigence especially when it comes to their "Reefer Madness", but not limited to that area of research. Glad to hear Dr. Mechoulam appeared here in the states. We owe a lot to him.

Re: “Air Force to UCCS? Concerns over a chancellor finalist

Politics, personalities, but not principles...
Such is post-modern Amerika and its fascination with subjective morality and alternative truths.
And those who dare dissent invoke the critics' 10 year old response of name calling "racist" being the least offensive term so far.
I love it when the fraud is exposed, not that any learning is accomplished.

Ironical, indeed. Stegner would be rolling in his grave if he heard this Orwellian statement from The Broadmoor's mayor.

For the record: CU President Bruce Benson doesn't hold a master's degree, let alone a doctorate.

Re: “Raphael Mechoulam inspires students interested in studying cannabis

CSU-Pueblo will not be doing any medical research on cannabis, so its potential contribution to the study of the use of cannabis as a medicine will be negligible.

Apparently these douchebags and their small penises will have to find another way to alert society to their sad irrelevancy.

Good. Ban this stupidity. Why do these big strong he-man types in their huge Tonka trucks fear the Prius? Do they have small hands? Small minds? Both? I'm sure they own a lot of guns too. Why are they so afraid? Of who? Of what?

How fitting for a political scammer like her to join the biggest scam of all -- religion. It's way past time to tax the church.

When they find such comparable, glaring weaknesses in their background.

Re: “Electronic add-ons provide more streaming options than you could ever watch on cable or satellite

I've really enjoyed your articles on getting rid of my cable. It's been tough but I followed your ideas. I am still guessing and figuring this out. The cable company (I'm not in CO Springs these days but still miss it) made it tough but I got to just cable and I like what I have so far.

I got an antenna, a roku, netflix, and I'm happy. I like the free stuff on the roku but you have to spend a lot of time finding the stuff you like it seems.

I wish you would spend more time on this as i keep seeing more options and products. Guess i have to read the other computer columns but great start. I don't like the pc magazines online sometimes as they are too short and not enough options.
thx!
