Re: “Migration to the north

On the one hand, we have a dominant conservative mentality that has little or no use for culture beyond a Netflix account & so has no desire to build up those typical signifiers of a dynamic city: museums dedicated to shit you take kids to in the hope that they won't be adult failures, starchitect-designed homeless library shelters, dental care-themed event venues, etc. On the other hand, we have a somewhat naive minority liberal mentality that believes in putting the cart of culture before the horse of public interest & government funding. Personally I would love it if Colorado Springs were more like somewhere else (like Denver, at the least) but I don't believe that you can impose the ideal of big city culture on a public whose majority prefer CS as a low tax city with ugly buildings & play-at-home culture. If you don't like it here then save yourself & escape to your ideal setting - don't be another martyr of change.

Re: “Gary Jensen's art has deflected loneliness, stagnation and easy answers

Terrible art show. I saw this crap last Sat because I wrongly assumed that your article had separated the wheat from the chaff event-wise. Aspire to being Westword at the very least, for everyone's sake. Focus your coverage on the good art shows in town, please.
