"but does that mean special-interest groups should have the right to dictate what I do? ...They attack trapping first because there aren't that many of us."
First you blame special interest groups for being anti-trapping. Then you say you are a small group, with special interest. You sir are the special interest.
Trapping is a time honored tradition, such as being a barrel-wight. But it's time has passed. Many of us worry about the safety of our family and pets, and we are not a special interest group. Many did not understand the wording of the bill, and you can rest assured it will be addressed again.
If this city REALLY wants to decrease pollution, they would re-time the lights on State St, VMP, and others to allow a smooth flow of traffic vs. the stop and go driving that plagues this town. Stop and go driving increases gas usage and therefore emissions.
State is timed to stop a car at every other light, and often I leave my house on Taft and will have to stop at every light before the Bypass.
36th , State, Adams, Chinden, Ustick. Northview, Fairview, and the ramp. This prolongs the drive, requires more accelerations, and leaves cars idling at the lights. Terrible for your car, gas milage and even worse for the environment.
A quick follow up, like Mark said, if people cared, then why no phone calls? I don't want to upset people that DO support local artists and musicians, but it is a real problem. I once was told by a musician, whose show I attended, that he wouldn't be at a show of mine because "He didn't go downtown on the weekends"
Like every other event in Boise, the people just don't care. Boise residents wander from event to event with no involvement. They don't support local music or art, the just go out to AA5 or First Thursday because it is there, not because they care. They won't even remember the name of a band that they spent all night enjoying or buy art from the artists that display in the galleries. It is a town that is entertainment apathetic.
