Re: “

The Curry Leaf's chicken curry is really, really good, but so is everything else on the menu. Even the green beans offer a sophisticated blend of flavors, and the dahl is great. Lana has taken wonderful care of us over the years. I love this place.

Re: “Nickel and doomed

Well said, Meath. No question, the atrocious downtown parking situation leads to a host of people visiting other parts of town, and who can blame them? As you also rightly mention, invasive police cameras prove equally disturbing to those who appreciate privacy and discretion, which should be most of us.

To your third point, maybe the only way to diversify downtown businesses usefully will be through the long-discussed SoDo expansion. Imagine how an impressive aquarium, a decent grocery store, and some lofts and townhomes integrated into a self-sustaining neighborhood would change the complexion and reputation of the city in the best manner possible. Strange to say, I think too many locals don't really notice how big Colorado Springs has gotten. It's time to earn a reputation commensurate with our growing needs.

Re: “The way of the gun

Robert Wyman, why are you calling Rich Tosches a bastard? Geez, man. Dial it back a little bit. You sound psychotic. You're spouting off like you want to shoot someone, and you don't want to do that, do you?

You're bloviating. Stop doing that. Look for focus in your arguments, and support your claims in a more systematic manner. For what it's worth, I support Second Amendment rights, too, to a degree, but arguments like yours do more damage than good. Binaries don't really apply, here. People can own weapons without having to own assault rifles. Does this make sense?

Re: “Obama campaign makes hay

smartestman, everyone who reads your stuff knows your postings usually signal the rantings of a pretty disturbed mind, which is sort of disappointing because you're a reasonably bright woman, but you should work on being a little more honest. I don't see you at all as a Libertarian and fail to understand why you claim to be one. So far as I can tell, you are a Neoconservative troll. Don't you agree?

Re: “Obama campaign makes hay

samrtestman, why did you deliver an ad hominem attack on another poster? When you call others crude names, you discredit yourself and this newspaper. Please don't do that.

Re: “Obama campaign makes hay

Romney keeps digging his own hole, and money will probably play the pivotal role in the election. This article does a pretty decent job of addressing these issues:…
