Re: “Singing With Angels

Saw the film in Utah - it's phenomenal. So much better than anything I expected and I highly recommend it.

Re: “Camp

Great movie. Incredible it is based on a real camp right here in Idaho! Very heartwarming story and well written. I loved that 50% of my proceeds will go back to our local camp to help foster children!

Re: “127 Hours

One of the best movies I have ever seen, James Franco perfectly portray's the desperation and confusion I'm sure was going through Aron Ralston's head during the ordeal. The score, composed by A.R. Rahman (with the help of Sigur Ros, Dido, and others) is genius and so perfectly goes along with the action, it seems the universe itself was playing it. This is the greatest movie of the past few years and is a must see for anyone and everyone. (some parts are rather graphic, so be careful if your squeamish)

Re: “The Counselor

A disappointment. However, cool furniture. (The scene where Fassbender & Cruz decide to escape to "Boise" is both painful and priceless.)

Re: “One Officer, Scores of Tickets and a Familiar Racial Disparity

I am appalled. Some folks feel empowered by Mr. Trump's Election and behave accordingly. Facts verified by credible third-party reporting agencies. I am tired of racism, criticism based upon religious beliefs or sexual orientation. We are all humans and we are all different. That is exactly how the Good Lord intended us to be. I've read the Bible many times. I've translated portions of Ancient Greek and Ancient Hebrew. And no where, absolutely no where, do I find any statements whatsoever by the Good Lord advocating such terrible behavior. I do read the Good Lord advising us to love the Father with our whole heart and soul, and then to love one another in the same fashion. No footnotes. No exceptions. No qualifiers. Each and every one of us has an obligation to treat each other as we wish to be treated. This is so basic that even Trumpettes and current Republicans should be able to understand as the wording confines itself to their comprehension level----single syllable words.

Re: “Boise 2017 Election Results: A Majority of the Minority

Further proof Boise is nothing more than a pit of virtue signaling "well wisher" slackivists masquerading as a progressive city. Want better voter turn out? Put your voter booths in Star Bucks and hand out "I am more special than you" stickers written in blue and orange for voters. Do this and I promise you 90% voter turn out next local elections.

Ok, I have to ask ... is that a drawing of (a young) Andrew McCarthy?? It sure looks like him.

Re: “Dr. Bob Kustra Announces Retirement as Boise State President

President Kustra was Illinois Lieutenant Governor. It may just be a typo on BW's part, but uncorrected it becomes a factual error. Semantics aside, Kustra will be sorely missed. He has made BSU one of the finest institutions of higher education in the west. Against all odds, the school continues to improve and thrive, year after year. This position will be very hard to fill.

That should be Illinois Lieutenant Governor, shouldn't it?

Re: “Broad Street: Not Yet LIV-able

Follow the money. If Joe Citizen parks there, ticket or towing, no questions, no appeal. If contractors violate the rules, city officials say well look into it, meaning go pound sand, cause Im getting a kickback, so I aint biting the hand that feeds.

If that were not the case, tickets would have already been issued, and impound yards would be full of construction vehicles.

Re: “UPDATE: Boise Brothers Craft Their Own Blueprint for Better Bike Protection on Eighth Street

How about something that does not cost any money... why not close the two block of 8th street to all cars, except handicapped and delivery. The store can have more sidewalk space and we all feel safer.

Re: “2017 Election Results: Sanchez, Thomson, Woodings Win Boise Council Seats

Somebody needs to investigate Caldwells mayor. Nobody who has been in office as long as he has wins by that large of a margin. People fear him. He has been physically abusive to city staffers and has council members cowing. His manipulation of TVCCs development plans in Caldwell to get the taxpayers to pay for a new, unnecessary city hall are just a few of the items that should be looked into, and yet I bet no one will talk.

Re: “The Trip to Spain: The Road Best Traveled

Me and my friends are planning to go to spain this January. We would love to see some nice beaches with clear water and some stunning scenery. We were thinking Majorca,Ibiza and Canary Island, we are up to some adventures and experience a great nightlife in our travel. I came across this great article too here in https://www.canaryislandsinfo.co.uk/el-hierro/things-to-do/ but i wanted to hear your thoughts first. Can anyone suggest any ideas or tips? Any help is kindly appreciated :)

Re: “The Squeaky Wheel

I don't mind bikes who follow the vehicle laws (and enjoy cruising thru needless red lights), but when cyclist rides in the center of the lane, UPHILL, in the main car lane (with accompanying bike lanes), he is just ASKING for a run-in. Use the bike lanes unless they don't exist. Otherwise, pretend you're a bike, up against WAY more horsepower than you want to engage with.
