Re: “Lisa Sanchez

I didn't vote for Ms. Sanchez - I voted for another non-incumbent, however. I congratulate her on her win, and hope she's a very successful member of the City Council!

I also hope she understands that people OTHER THAN the poor make up this community. There is a large contingent of middle class tax-paying Boise citizens who feel they have been ignored for years by our local elected "representatives." The mayor and Council have a reputation for focusing on, and catering to the needs of, downtown, and the north and east end. Us southerners and westerners get the table scraps. I'm hoping Ms. Sanchez will keep the rest of us in mind, as she deliberates and votes.

Re: “Citizens of The Year

I feel the same way Dennis Doan feels about illegal fireworks being sold in Idaho. Why not sell marijuana here too, as long as you sign an agreement not to smoke it here. Maybe the legislature is under the influence, if they can't see how ludicrous the legislation is that allows illegal fireworks to be sold here, is.

Re: “Reza Aslan

I am glad that Azlan apologized because he is very different from Donald. Donald was taught by Roy Cohen, the lawyer for the Mob in NYC to: 1)Attack, 2)Re-attack, 3)NEVER apologize. Also Azlan is more professional and persuasive when he explains Donald in aberrant psychological findings.
In THE DANGEROUS CASE OF DONALD TRUMP, twenty-seven psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health experts argue that, in Mr. Trumps case, their moral and civic duty to warn America supersedes professional neutrality. They then explore Trumps symptoms and potentially relevant diagnoses to find a complex, if also dangerously mad, man.

Re: “Phil McGrane

What an interesting analogy but I guess it is comparable in terms of stress and expectations. Stakes are even higher with destination weddings and having the right planner can spell the difference between a blissful day or an expensive disaster.Last spring, my cousin had a destination wedding in Italy. They wanted a fairytale wedding so they booked a medieval castle from this global wedding marketplace The planner that came with the package was really instrumental in making everything possible especially since my cousin and her intended were in a different time zone during the entire planning period. Just amazing what a capable planner can accomplish.

Re: “Heather Booth

I did not gleen from this story that she wants to change our government type. And I do not think that the previous person's conclusion "that everything else she says can be discounted" is fair or even logical. I think he missed the point . She is simply suggesting that people should speak out and organize with others to bring issues to the fore. She also suggests that the citizens of this country could understand more complex issues than we are given credit for being able to do and that sound bites and twitters keep us from drawing our own conclusions.

Re: “Heather Booth

"We have to take back our "small-d" democracy."

We don't have a democracy, and never have. We have a republic, thankfully. Assuming she knows the difference, she's doing us a disservice by trying to change our government type--democracy always leads to a tyranny of the majority. If she doesn't know the difference, then anything else she says can be discounted.

Re: “Lecia Brooks

Lecia Brooks holds TWO concurrent Directorships at the SPLC, yet she has NEVER been listed among the company's highest paid executives.

All of the highest paid execs since the company opened in 1971 have been white. What gives? The ugly word "token" rears its head.

Re: “Dr. Kevin Cahill

But... What are the negative impacts (costs to the community)? They say they exist but failed to provide them. I can't even find a link to the pro-bono work Dr. Cahill did previously. I think it would have been great to share that information.

Re: “Dr. Kevin Cahill

I'm finding a lot of the negative feedback on this proposal, from Boise area citizens, is the noise pollution of the zones they expect the aircraft to fly over. Right now, the loudest military aircraft rarely make stops in Boise and primarily stay around Mtn Home. Currently, there's tolerable noise for those of us who live near'ish to the airport. F-35s are another monster. But that's not all there is to the drawbacks. Political hands are being greased, of course. Probably a kick-back to the City for their cooperation. For me, the big kick in the face with this push is that this aircraft is a money pit, and has been for years. It's still not even probably 80% safe to fly yet. Republicans claim that there's not enough money for a Universal health care system in America, yet they're fine with spending $40B taxpayer dollars on the F-35 program, and countless more funds for the bloated defense budget. Why are we not complaining about this?

Re: “Dr. Kevin Cahill

Boise City has decided that it's not politically correct to go against the F-35. It has Bipartisan support in the Congress and is a fav of Dem establishment. Perhaps Obama lobbied Bieter for the F-35 on his visit a few years ago. Most City Council members are immune from political backlash, as they are in "soundproof" parts of town that don't hear airport traffic much. Military traffic avoids the Northend. That keeps the "peace" politically. So don't expect help from enviros that might get upset about noise pollution voting against the Politburo at City Hall over this.

Re: “Sally Boynton Brown

Sally's leaving is a great loss for the state of Idaho. She is an excellent listener when many in the party wanted little or no change. I hope her replacement is even half the person she is!

Re: “Sally Boynton Brown

When she's having a conversation with herself, does she tell herself to shut up so the black people can also be heard? (At least there's more black folks in Florida than in Idaho, so it won't always be awkward silence.)
