It's hard to feel sorry for Bergdahl. What happened to him he caused.

Re: “UPDATE: Arbiter Declines Advertising from Creationist Groups, Issues Statement

The ad probably intimated that the creationist event was an official school event - creationists do this a lot, hiring a hall and then saying "This event took place at XYZ University!"

It's nice to see actual facts coming out of the hearing instead of speculation and trial by social and traditional media.

Good Job Arbititer!
It would have been funny if the editor had said... "I will run your add if you can prove what you are saying/selling is true... " The only place fiction has in higher ed is in Lit and creative writing.

Universities are a place for higher learning, not higher stupidity. Bravo to the newspaper that refused to announce a creationist BS event.

Re: “UPDATE: Arbiter Declines Advertising from Creationist Groups, Issues Statement

They've accomplished highlighting that the event is something no intelligent and educated person would want anything to do with. Seriously America grow up and join the rest of the western world. We cames to terms with the reality of Evolution a century ago.

Re: “UPDATE: Arbiter Declines Advertising from Creationist Groups, Issues Statement

BSU supports "embraces the freedom of expression guaranteed by the Constitution" for their school newspaper but not for those students who want to bring this event on campus. I thought universities were supposed to be open minded and expose their students to all kinds of experiences. No one is being forced to attend the event. By rejecting the ad though they have probably brought greater awareness and publicity to the event so not sure they've accomplished much.

Re: “UPDATE: Arbiter Declines Advertising from Creationist Groups, Issues Statement

Hope those creationist idiots didn't pay their hack lawyer a lot of money- they're going to lose. The law on student publications is clear- they can reject anyone they want. In addition, the Editor in Chief of the Arbiter made it clear that to be fair they aren't allowing ANY advertisement of a religious nature- not creationists, not churches or temples or mosques, not atheist groups. Equality all around.

And quick tip, children- creationism is absolute nonsense. No educational facility should be rejecting of evidence based science in favor of Iron Age mythology. Saying "all viewpoints" should be taught is like saying they should teach alchemy in chemistry class or horoscopes in physics.

Re: “UPDATE: Arbiter Declines Advertising from Creationist Groups, Issues Statement

Must not have special snowflakes be subjected to things that might offend their sensibilities. University should be a place of safety and refuge not learning about things that might make you sad or mad or unhappy. What the heck do they think a university should be doing - providing education and various viewpoints? Sheesh.

Please keep out opposing ideas, information and facts. We cannot allow students in a body of education to THINK FOR THEMSELVES! CENSOR! CENSOR! CENSOR! Hitler the Darwinist would be proud.

Uh. ACHD doesn't do sewers. The City of Boise does. Ergo, it's the City if Boise that is closing the road.

Re: “"COPS" TV Show Crew Films Boise Police Department This Week

People of Boise have short memories, maybe?

There are many more police involved shootings in Boise if you search FATAL Police Shooting Boise ID. And we have some nasty crimes, tiny boy dead in canal- murdered; Airline employee layover murdered on Greenbelt; Wife buries husband she murdered under house, discovered a couple years ago. Weird stuff, but compared to big city crime, hardly worth mentioning. Right?

Re: “"COPS" TV Show Crew Films Boise Police Department This Week

About 6 or so years ago I was visiting my in-laws in Boise and lo and behold, I ended up on Cops with my sister's in law. There was a black truck and a canal bank we were on along with the officers pulling their guns out add they searched for someone under the truck. I was not arrested but my sisters in law were. Starting from that point forward all 3 of us finally got clean and sober and remain sober to this day. So thanks COPS on location in Boise, you're presence and interference in my life changed me for the better!
Btw, to the person who thinks missing strollers are the highest level of crime that's happening in Boise, ID, you truly have no clue as to your surroudings, do you? Remaining oblivious to the obvious doesn't make you the wisest either by any exaggeration, now does it?

Re: “"COPS" TV Show Crew Films Boise Police Department This Week

I guess when you break the law, engage in risky and self-destructive behavior, endanger other people by attempting to outrun the cops, and traffic in handguns and drugs, you've probably given up your right to privacy and are no longer in the running for "Citizen of the Year" award, huh?

If anything, a show like "Cops" does document the nonsense that the police have to put up with each day in the performance of their work.

Re: “UPDATE: Humane Society Offers $10,000 Reward for Information on Mutilated Pony in Minidoka County

So, so sad for this defenseless, loving, joyful, caring pony towards all who wanted to pet him. Let us try to remember the good times the family had. I worked for 4 years 40-60 hours a week to get Joan's Law passed in NJ and keep Joan's torturerer and killer behind bars. What kept me going was thinking, this could be my child. I believe, Joan did for my daughter as I did for her. Thank God it was an "ALMOST" . NY only passed it when Pataki was running for reelection. I called his office at least 20 times in the previous years. Then, BIG fanfare.
God will judge us not just how we treat each other, but how we cared for all of his creatures. This caused me so much sadness and sickness of heart. What kind of person births and maybe raises such monsters???? The excuse that they maybe had an abusive childhood holds no water with me since no one knows what goes on behind closed doors and not everyone turns out "sick in the head and heart"..
Lawmakers, get off of your a...es. The next victim could be your relative.

Re: “"COPS" TV Show Crew Films Boise Police Department This Week

I can't wait to see poor people and others with wrecked lives humiliated on television! Hooray for domestic-abuse-as-entertainment and making fun of alcoholics and addicts with serious issues and in need of help being caught on camera for my enjoyment! Thanks COPS for making criminals look like characters instead of real people with real problems (and by real I don't mean REALITY T.V.)

Re: “UPDATE: Arbiter Declines Advertising from Creationist Groups, Issues Statement

I see no reason why a newspaper should not run advertisements from religious "pseudoscience snake oil salesmen" when they run ads for pseudoscience snake oil all the time -- "investment" counselors, dubious charities, the Idaho Lottery, political PACs, copper "healing bracelets" that emit electromagnetic waves, walk-a-thons that never "cure" anything, cut-rate Viagra from Mexico, and personal ads from convicted felons in the state pen.

"I'm shocked … shocked to find that gambling is going on in here …"
