Re: “Urban Egg, A Daytime Eatery - Tejon St.

Reminds me of deep-in-the-city eateries I frequented on the east and west coasts - but the food is a lot better. I never saw disorganization, just crowded. One mistake, and they fixed it. Go there. Huevos Rancheros. Go there.

Re: “Colorado Springs City Council: Choices for the future

Thank you for recognizing Don Knight's hard work for us the citizens! He has consistently supported the interests of those already invested in Colorado Springs.

The Gazette has backed Greg Basham, terming Don a micro-manager, but Don asks the questions that make our Citys organizations, like Utilities and Planning, more transparent. Add to that the Gazettes brand-new policy of not publishing letters of support after endorsing a pro-developer slate and it gets a little strange.

Basham has publicly pledged support to fast-tracking development. Development interests have donated more than $30,000 to his campaign. He claims that Don has no business experience, but Dons extensive resume as an AF officer, plus a decade in business development, is ideal he understands how to grow business, and knows that big government has trouble listening to citizens voices. Don is supported by ordinary citizens, the Firemens Union, and Utilities. His much smaller $5,000 campaign fund reflects this grassroots backing.

We need more housing, but the citys unswerving goal of Infill without sufficient standards is creating overcrowded spaces and structures that blight the community and do not serve our long-term interests. We need development interests that are pledged to improve our city, not just build more units.

Re: “Don't worry, your soda is safe with us

Certainly, obesity has more than one cause, and my sympathies go out to anyone with an inherited deficiency. The recent study that showed a pattern of missing DNA in morbidly obese people sheds new light on the general problem of overweight. There is, however, a very close correlation between the increase in the consumption of sugared soft drinks and the increase in the rate of both morbid obesity and type 2 diabetes. Here's one of many links about this:… . Diet drinks may not be any alternative, either - lots of food for thought about this on the Internet, including this:
Bottom Line: YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN HEALTH - play the cards you're dealt wisely.
