I cede to reality when it's prudent and appropriate, because I don't wish to make myself a victim. Predators, regardless of their species, have no respect for human rights or the laws of (wo)man. I don't hike alone in grizzly or cougar country. I have the right to do so, but I choose not to. The fact that those animals simply follow their natural biological imperative, whereas a human predator is perverted and sociopathic, is neither here nor there. They will all attack if presented with the opportunity. Your idealistic, self-righteous bubble will not protect you from any of them.

Agreed, epstreehouse. Sometimes you just have to accept reality and deal with it appropriately to keep yourself safe. And as my dad used to say, "Don't do stupid stuff."

"Roman-Romero, who does not speak English . . ."
"According to the affidavit, she told the detective that she came to the United States in 1999. . ."
Way to assimilate!

The part I like is:
"Paramedics and a physician were on the scene with his motorcade at the time and provided him immediate attention."

I'm all for people getting in some fitness time, but any guesses on how much an outing like this, complete with physician and motorcade, costs the taxpayer? Maybe when he travels Kerry should stick to the stationary bike in his hotel fitness center, like the rest of us.

What the hell has happened to the once-free People of Boulder? Your lives and livelihoods are determined by unelected boards, self-important city employees, and neighborhood cranks. Even if the homeowners prevail in this case, how much has it cost them to assert and defend their rights as property owners? This is the outcome when you cede personal freedoms to "progressive" control freaks in the name of "the common good."

This was easy -- I just copied and pasted my comment from another article on expanding the "design code" for future development proposals. It applies equally as well here. People of the Republic: Drop your keys and back away from your cars.

"Boulderites are so mired in smug self-regard they can't (don't want to) see that this once free spirited, open-thinking city has become dogmatic, control-obsessed, and oppressive. Today it stands as the antithesis of its earlier charm and appeal, but local group-think requires those thoughts to be suppressed and remain unspoken. Emigres continue to congratulate themselves on their own cleverness in discovering such a "magical" spot. I guess if you're lucky enough to own a sweet place on the west side of town, and never have to venture far from home, you can preserve the fantasy. Having moved a short distance away, I still have to come to Boulder periodically for various business and appointments, and I can tell you -- it's a jolt to the senses."

This is stupid. Unless we can smoke pot up there. Then it's cool.

Food trucks are symbolic of the kind of grass-roots entrepreneurship which is re-invigorating the urban food scene across the country. How many people have the cash to lease, outfit, decorate, staff, and maintain a brick-and-mortar restaurant? And even if you do have those resources, what if that's not how you envision the relationship between people and food? And what about food patrons? We want choices. The quality and creativity in food truck offerings in Denver/Boulder/Ft. Collins is amazing! This should be a source of pride, something encouraged as a valuable part of a vibrant community. Just because I buy an amazing spicy ginger pork belly taco from a food truck today, doesn't mean I won't visit a local sit-down restaurant later this week. Regulations with respect to health and food safety are a given. But don't create arbitrary barriers and obstacles at the behest of the established restaurant community, or because you lack creative vision.

Really? I mean, it's too bad this guy got himself and his daughters mixed up with a homicidal maniac. Maybe she was an incredibly convincing actor, or maybe he is incredibly gullible and a bad judge of character. Probably a combination of both. I feel especially bad for the daughters, who were just a captive audience to this adult insanity, and are paying a high price. They should definitely get counseling. Maybe the victims advocacy section within the police department could help arrange that, as they are victims, too. And maybe a church group will help sponsor this family to get them back on their feet. But if everyone who makes bad choices or demonstrates poor judgment were to "crowd fund" -- well, think about what that would look like.
