Re: “Photographer Bill Young focuses his camera on homelessness and dialogue

I want to see a nice panorama of a field; with mounds of trash surrounding an unused 30 yard dumpster.
Because although I care about the homeless; I will never understand their abusage of the world that they do live in - our Colorado outdoors and natural lands.
The Concrete Couch has a giant dumpster such as the one mentioned; and teh Concrete Couch's current outdoor project also has miscellaneous trash and garbage all over it's property; in and around Shooks Run.
Too bad none of the homeless can't take turns volunteering to clean up their own areas.

Re: “Pikes Peak Litter Letter project draws attention to trash in local waterways

This is a joke. Take a walk along Shooks Run from E. Fountain to E. Las Vegas. Gaze upon a wasteland of trash and garbage, five gallons buckets of feces (where do they go when full? Into a regular trash bin? Do you think the trash compacter dumptruck is meant to process that stuff? Is the landfill rated for human waste disposal????), and ... and a huge 10 cubic yard dumpster SW of the High Tops Dispensary at 1022 S. Royer.

Giant dumpster. Unused.
Good luck with the utopian experiment. Soon winter will be here; the entire area will be a blaze with wild fire.

Well meaning charity; gone horribly awry.

Re: “Mark Barsocchini shows us the ropes as he goes pro with his knotwork

It's great to see a fellow knot tyer find their place. Our family has been doing similar work for 61 years here in Mystic, CT and it's great to see another success story. The tradition is very much alive , and we've taught over 5,000 kids their first decorative knots just in the last 3 years.

Re: “In Memoriam: The Tall Man Xavier Frétard

I rode penny farthings with him last march, and only got to hang out with him for a few hours that day, but he made me laugh so much. Thank you for sharing this.

Re: “Palmer Land Trust partners with artists for new outdoor awareness campaign

Hey, if the citizens lose their lawsuit, why dont you quickly go and paint Strawberry Fields before the Broadmoor bulldozers begin the destruction... Shame on you Palmer Land Trust for aiding and abetting the land grab!

Re: “Radio Ha Ha to support KCMJ 96.3

I think your source for this story may not be reliable.

1. KCMJ started streaming in 2014
2.It's been broadcasting for 2.5 years.
3. It's frequency, whenever it IS on the air, is 93.9 FM

Just FYI

Beautiful, and sad. Your words making his passing too real. A rare soul he had. He will be missed by us and countless others.

Re: “Converge Lecture Series cancels Junot Díaz lecture following allegations of sexual assault and aggression

Cowardly decision. 2 of the 3 main accusers have been hopelessly discredited. How can anyone prove innocence given the vague insidious smear campaign being mounted. There has been clamour for him to lose his jobs. His works have been preemptorily removed from bookshelves. Children's events have been cancelled! (Like - allegations of pedo??! At best/worst we have a "forcible kiss" idk of a 26 year old). Most media reports have been 1 sided hatchet jobs. Gives the impression that any allegations, no matter what is later revealed, stand as incontrovertible truth of their content. That cannot be right and it most certainly isn't fair. Shame on you, CLS. Look forward to a deeply tedious & profoundly unenlightening revised series.

Re: “Converge Lecture Series cancels Junot Díaz lecture following allegations of sexual assault and aggression

That's interesting. In response to the same charges against Diaz, made on social media, MIT recently cleared him to continue teaching there. And the Boston Review also recently announced that Diaz would continue to be the magazine's fiction editor. http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2018/06/26/diaz-j26.html

Re: “Captain Kirk in Colorado Springs: A Trekkie's thoughts on William Shatner's UCCS speech

Im glad you come to know a little bit more of him after this speech. Because simply questioning what makes him qualified for this at the beginning is just astonishing. It wont happen if you only knew a little bit more of his career path other than Star Trek beforehead.

Re: “Captain Kirk in Colorado Springs: A Trekkie's thoughts on William Shatner's UCCS speech

What an amazing article! With that lovely balance between the Trekkie and the journalist... But Shatner as seen through the eyes of a Trekkie is priceless - and it's as it should be!

---If you students take your diploma and scroll it up and look through it, as if it were a telescope, and fixate on points of light, you might see something different. You might see hope.

Okay, yes, its philosophical and needlessly romantic, but that's exactly what I would want and expect in a speech by William Shatner. He went on, saying that technology is moving at a breakneck pace. The world is changing around us all the time. The one thing that doesnt seem to change, or at least moves with tectonic slowness, is human nature," he said. "And thats the final frontier. Human nature needs to change. ---

This bit was extremely moving. A piece of advice we desperately need, especially right now, and it's so fitting that it should come from our Captain! And this whole article is so full of sentiment, it's beautiful. But hey, big fan of your writing here, so!

And what a wonderful, hopeful conclusion you gave us. Thank you!
