Re: “Flashdance: The Musical

That was a very disappointing show. I'm a bit disappointed in the Morrison Center. Calling this the "Broadway in Boise" series implies that the shows HAVE BEEN on Broadway. "Flashdance" has not been successful enough to GET to Broadway, so tonight after seeing a show that wasn't very good and which we were glad to see end, I feel that we were WAY overcharged for a very troubled show. For a story about dancing, most of the musical was characters standing still singing at each other, a bit like cardboard cutouts, but I think cutouts would have swayed a bit. The few 80s songs were fun, but the new additions were too numerous and unforgettable. If the rest of the season isn't a vast improvement, we won't be renewing our season tickets.

Re: “'Til Death Did They Part

No, "they" is correct because as the sentence is written, "they" is the subject.

Re: “Who's Funding the Race for Idaho Governor?

I understand what the gas & oil industry got (and will continue to get) for their money, and obviously gambling companies would have a financial stake in any changes to Idaho's gaming laws, but I don't see what Coca Cola would get from Butch Otter. To make sure schools don't restrict how much product placement they can do?

Re: “The Candidate Becomes The Issue: Rebecca Arnold's Run for Fourth Judicial District Court Judge

I consider myself an informed voter and have never missed an election since I turned 18, but I don't like electing judges. I know there are problems with political appointment judges as well, but now that judicial candidates can get donations and money backing from special interest groups, I think we'd be FAR better off taking our chances with appointees rather than judges-for-purchase. I don't think either of these candidates are beholden to anyone, but these seats are too important to be left to a contest of who has the most signs out.

Re: “Governor on Same-Sex Marriage: "Federal Courts Are Mistaken"

HG, I'm sure you mean well, but your arguement is flawed. For one thing, "acknowledging differences between the sexes" is why there had to be Title 9 because men's interpretation of "differences between the sexes" meant that sports were shut off to women--not to mention jobs not being open to them, less pay for equal work, etc. etc. etc. "Acknowledging the differences" between the races let to the "Seperate but Equal" doctrine which was never equal and just opened the door for whites to discriminate in every way possible against blacks. Frankly, we humans are at our very, very worst when we allow a class of humans to be "different" or "separate." Marriage is NOT strictly a religious institution. You can go to a church to get married, but that marriage is in NO WAY legal until the piece of paper is filed with the government. You can, however, have a legal marriage without any religion whatsoever. So, at the end of the day, marriage is a legal contract, and saying that some people may have that contract while others may not is, by very definition, legal discrimination and the kind of thing we said we were against when this country was founded: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal...." It's been a very long struggle to get there, and only white straight males haven't had to fight for inclusion in that. I'm sorry you can't extend those rights to your fellow human beings who just happen to have been born homosexual, but honestly, that's your loss--not theirs. Time and justice march forward.......

Re: “A Clear Choice: The Race for Secretary of State

Denney was the first speaker of the house in Idaho in 30 years to be ousted by his own party. Statement of fact. (http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2012/dec/…) He also used PAC money to try oust those who didn't support him, even though they had contributed to the PAC. (http://www.spokesman.com/blogs/boise/2012/…). The Idaho Statesman cited Denney's support of Phil Hart as one of the reasons they endorsed Holli. Statements of fact about the shortcomings of Denney aren't bashing him. That it reflects negatively on him is just how it is.
