Re: “Video: PETA Stages Anti-Wool Protest in Downtown Boise

I feel like no one really thinks about wool not being very nice to sheep. You just think that the sheep has to be sheared and that doesn't hurt the animal. I don't understand why shearers have to be so cruel and abusive. What is wrong with people?

Re: “Boise Makes Air Force Shortlist to House F-35 Fighter Jets

The Mayor and City Council recently approved the first new subdivision south the airport, despite the fact that location south and west of the airport will be subjected to significant noise levels due to the arrival of the new jets. Also, there has been a significant investment to revitalize the Vista corridor. This shows me that the City doesn't have a clear vision and isn't strong enough to protect its citizens from real estate developers, the BOI airport, and the military. Come on Boise city leadership.... LEAD and protect your people!

That'll get people's attention, and hopefully convince them to scratch wool off their shopping list. There are so many more humane options.

This is brilliant. So many people don't realize that wool causes massive suffering. There are so many better things to wear.

Love this protest. Vegan wool is easy to find, and it will keep you warm and cozy without contributing to cruelty.

Re: “Video: PETA Stages Anti-Wool Protest in Downtown Boise

Good for PETA. There's nothing warm about wool, not when sheep are abused so that it can be stolen from then. With all of the stylish, durable synthetics available, there are plenty of options to ward off the chill without making animals suffer.

Re: “JUMP, Explained (Somewhat)

I wish Mr. Simplot had bestowed upon Boise something more vital and lasting than an oddly designed building where cooking classes and fingerpainting are taught. His millions might have helped endow a proper public transit system for this community, or a decent baseball stadium that might have helped revitalize downtown and given the youth of the community a center for athletics. He might have helped connect Boise to the West Coast by high speed rail line or underwritten much-needed historic preservation. Instead, we got a modernist structure and a tractor museum where -- years after ground was first broken -- no one can still seem to figure out what it really is.

And I'm sorry, the very fact that there are college ratings of who is hottess is appalling. I'm sure Jesus would be so proud.

@Amy Weir
Clearly you are the moron here, considering the title of this article clearly says BYU-Idaho. As in BYU-I in Rexburg, Idaho.

Also, it is clear that his grammar, spelling, and correct use of punctuation is far superior than your own. Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

Re: “JUMP, Explained (Somewhat)

I hope there's areas geared more towards children. It would be nice to have a playroom for them!


Also is there a date set? Or maybe a month? Or even a year set?!?!

Re: “Boise Set to Renew Contract to House Suspects at Ada County Jail

Interesting that inmates also pay $35 per day. That's a gross profit of $105 per inmate per day, plus "booking fee". Seems that locking people up is a very lucrative business. Though, it was my understanding, that it's illegal to profit off of crime, in any way.

$70 per inmate, per day. In the real world, that's the price of a nice hotel room and a couple of modest meals. Considering the conditions in jail; poor quality food, threadbare bedding and then add in the profit from commissary, phone calls, SILD program et al, it seems to me that the Sheriff's office is making a pretty penny at the expense of the tax payer, the City of Boise and those who find themselves on the unfortunate side of the law, without giving much back in return.

Once upon a time, they called this brigandry but it seems sometimes, that words lose their meaning.

The jail houses 1,217 inmates. Jail deputies also run alternative sentencing programs like work release, labor detail, and community service, all at a fee for those convicted.
