Would it be a Zero-Waste Event?
This high tech solution might work. Imagine the benefits we'll get by combining the PooPrints database with the info from the new license plate readers.
George, I'm going to disagree with you on this one. I think Karen did the right thing. If there's one thing we have more of than errant poo, it's people not willing to stick their neck out for anything.
I don't find the Fur Lady or Cow Pie analogies quite accurate.
Especially when you can marinate in a flotation tank.
I've done this a few times. It's great! Sensory deprivation at its finest. Enhanced interrogation techniques for the masses. Nice to see military technology benefiting the consumer. You really should try this! Maybe there will be a mud season special.
I agree that any eventual proposal for a new police station must go to a public vote.
I think "kerfuffle" has legs, as a term of derision, as long as it's delivered with a hint (or icon) of sarcasm. City Councils have left us many white elephants, but only one kerfuffle, to date.
Despite the dismissive nature of the term "kerfuffle", you have to admit it's catchy.
Today's coverage of the big snowstorm in the Northeast reminds us that failure to provide basic services, or to respond adequately to an emergency, has marked the downfall of more than one big city Mayor.
Perhaps "The Great Kerfuffle of '15" will be a watershed event in Steamboat politics.
Taking my inspiration from the editorial committee, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that if a kerfuffle doesn't kill you, it makes you stronger. We should not be afraid to double down on our kommitment(ing) to kerfuffling.
A previous editor told me that the purpose of the newspaper's weekly editorial is to promote discussion. This one failed.
The use of the trite British term "kerfuffle" trivializes the seriousness of the City's error. The shuttle, which runs only during peak hours, is an expensive band aid that only deals with a portion of the damage that Council caused. But everyone knows that except the newspaper which, once again, tries to sweep a serious problem under the rug while promoting a certain lifestyle.
I encourage people not to get too bent out of shape over what they read here. If you have something important to say, email it to City Council. They are decision makers. The editor of the newspaper is not.
The editorial committee has badly butchered the English language several times in the past few weeks. Maybe the editor should do more editing and less opining.
