Whitney Isabel 3 months ago on Women's March on Steamboat Springs surpasses expectations

Hi Mary, True story: I saw your comment and then scrolled straight down to the bottom to post my comment. I didn't read and I don't care what any of these men have to say about the Women's March.

Still over the last two days I have seen the new set of talking points coming from our more conservative citizen commentators so I can only imagine....something along the lines of..."these women protestors don't know how lucky they are to have the rights we've already granted them. They should just be happy with what they have. And they obviously do not care at all about the poor oppressed women of (fill-in-the-blank majority Muslim country)."

It's an ABSURD argument. I just can't even. Sigh. Of course WOMEN CARE. That's what WE DO. Anyone using that argument needs to SIT DOWN.

It's really not hard, say it with me: Women's Rights are Human Rights!

I hope you'll run for office Mary Walker. You'd have my vote. You have one of my all time favorite comments on this site. Left SB in 2008 but we are slowly making our way back. My family marched in Seattle yesterday. Was honestly one of the best days of my life!

Whitney Isabel 6 years, 1 month ago on Routt County sheriff works to overhaul agency

1999 - I agree with you regarding Scott Wedel. I don't know him personally and I haven't read every single post of his, but he seems well versed and able to form educated opinions on the subjects he does post on. Whether I agree with him or not is beside the point.

I also doubt my approval matters to him but...Scott, if you're reading...Keep 'em coming. I enjoy forum discussions on local matters (even though I've unfortunately moved away) because they do just that...foster community discussion.

Whitney Isabel 7 years, 4 months ago on Pilot & Today police report appears on ‘Leno’

WZ, Here's my favorite:

4:39 p.m. A complaint was made that a gray sport utility vehicle with the bumper sticker that read "Honk if you love crack" was spotted in the 200 block of Lincoln Avenue. The reporting party said those kind of people were not wanted in this town and asked police to investigate.
