Stuart -- We will NEVER see the bottom of this mess. It has festered too long, and runs too deep. The same faceless powers call the shots that did 30 years ago, and the only thing that changes is the parade of puppets pointing fingers at each other. Our mayor-less form of government lends itself perfectly to that. "Executive Session" gets them singing the same song.

You accept these facts, by choosing to live here. You are a captive audience.

Don't let 'em shove an MRI on you when an X-ray will suffice. Don't let them pump toxins in your veins if you don't need it. What's best for you depends on your insurance, they would say.

Doctors will kill you as fast as anything, and I credit my excellent health to minimal contact (among other factors).

It's all about water. The Essence of Life. Yet Another Developer wants the City to throw into their get-rich-quick scheme, to make it feasible. It's not about rentals at all; there won't be one on the property -- Magill is clueless -- or in somebody's pocket -- throwing around the latest buzz-word to sell the package. Said developer is obviously sinking big money into this. But they want us to provide their water.

We voted this down once, and I just hope the current Council does not circumvent our opportunity to do so again.

I saw Hornsby in '89 at Telluride Bluegrass, with my new love at the time, so that show would have been a trip back in time, for myself, wallowing in the blues about the road not taken...

But I had a thought yesterday. Bruce puts on a good show, a master of the stage. I'm sure many people anticipated that show with pleasure.

Maybe some people even bought VIP passes with that show in mind. Free shows aren't free to them. Is the City (or some other faceless entity) planning a rebate? Or do those people get four shows for the price of five? Whose fingers were in that pie?

I believe everything I read. Our government is truly independent of, and has no control or influence over the media. They wouldn't lie to us. If they say it happened, it happened. Like Building 7, Flight 98, and The Pentagon. You can't argue with history.

Our antagonists change monthly, with all the evil in the world these days, each with a marketable moniker -- ISIS this week, Al Queda now passe, we beat them -- going back, we had VC, NVA, Communist Korea, (commie anything) Nazi's, Japanese ("Nips") and the occasional tyrant, who had to be beat into submission. They just keep coming, and it's our God-ordained duty to kill them all. One Christian world is what God wants. For the kids. Think of the kids.

One taste of a Big Mac will win the masses. Free checking and plastic will seal the deal.

If these durn doubters and conspiracy-theorists would just shut up, then we could ride free-rein over the world, at only a slight loss of life, limb, and money, all to serve our God and the Federal Reserve. Praise the Union!! Onward Christian Soldiers!!

No Scott, as usual you miss my point and thence dilute it.

I'm saying one person's terrorist is another person's crusader. We'll drop smart bombs down power plant chimneys, in our humanitarian effort to save innocent lives, while plunging thousands into darkness, and only killing a few -- who's the terrorist now?

I'm too lazy to Google Christian atrocities perpetrated upon others, but I will say both sides get more than a little self-righteous in their proclamations about the other. And some are more vocal than others.

Terrorists can take on many guises. They all have an agenda. Intimidation is the tactic. God is on their side. And they could be in your own back yard.
