Doug Starkey 3 months ago on Room has power to change broadband access in Steamboat, Routt County

bah! tax payer and government entities pooling their money (our money!) to leverage buying power in an inefficient market? stinks to high heaven of socialism and the death of the free market. Next they will want to do that sort of thing in the health care market. Keep your government hands off my medicare!

Doug Starkey 6 months, 4 weeks ago on Chuck McConnell: Representation matters

Lots of words here, that's for sure. More rhetoric, that's for sure.

"Out-of-state hunters are seriously considering a boycott of Colorado for next year’s hunting season because of the Legislature’s new anti-gun attitude." "Hunters", is that two people who hunt or all of them? I'm sure this claimed is based on some sort of survey of out of state hunters, right? Or maybe a conversation with somebody's cousin from Ohio?

"Our citizens are not safer because of the new laws and are in fact less safe; there is much credible research to support this." Love to see the "credible research" supporting this statement.

Meandering pablum, par for the course from Chuck. Quick last note to Chuck. We did have an election in 2012. We elected people to represent us (aka Representation). They are doing as the majority expected when they voted. If we disagree, there's always another election coming up. Here's hoping Chuck runs again.

Doug Starkey 8 months, 1 week ago on Rob Douglas: Sexual identity politics and the Olympics

Another shallow slam piece by Douglas, lacking in any substance or even the fortitude to take his own stance. What would you do if you were President Rob? Go yourself, boycott? Or simply find a way to continue your "political grandstanding"?

The only person claiming this is "art" is Rob Douglas. He's the one that pulled "art" from "graffiti artist".

It would be great to see a correction of some sort from Rob, at least an apology to Steve Inskeep. Not holding my breath.

Wow, way to tackle the tough issues Rob. Calling Inskeep a "nitwit" is a big, bold position, and a great way to strike at the liberal media's bias towards the criminal element. It was sure clear in that 25 second blurb that Inskeep was using graffiti "artist" the same way we use artist to describe the paintings of Picasso, Raphael, and van Gogh. Except the part where he leads with framing the graffiti artist as a criminal.

I know it's tough to come up with a column every week. However, taking one word out of context ,"artist", reframing the story and then calling someone a nitwit over your version is stooping pretty low.

Doug Starkey 1 year ago on Rob Douglas: Where’s Sparky when we need him?

I think Rob's objection with night skiing might have to do with his Tree Haus home and excellent view of the night skiing area, rather than overall concerns with the environment and the Bortle scale. Might have been a nice disclaimer in this column, "Hey, I'm directly impacted by those lights. However, I'm really concerned with lip service to the environment, not the impact in my backyard.".

Nice thing about those lights, when the switch is off the impact on the Bortle scale will be off as well. We aren't talking about a permanent and lasting impact, just 12 or so hours a week during the ski season.
