Re: “Curt McKenzie's No-Huddle Offense

Brian, it's not an issue of fifteen minutes of fame, it's about not allowing the public nor people directly affected by this bill to have their say. People disagree on the issue of allowing more guns on campuses. We can disagree on a 21 year old being a responsible adult. We can disagree on the criteria one needs to carry a firearm. We can disagree on suppositions of what would happen if a schizophrenic who was constant on taking their meds decided they no longer wanted to take them and became disillusioned and had a case of manic depression and became suicidal. Of course, we can disagree on throwing more guns into the mix because a certain percentage of our populace feels unsafe.
How could one argue these points without given the chance? Maybe without the opportunity to fully understand the subject and hash it out, neither those for the bill nor those against lose out.

Re: “Curt McKenzie's No-Huddle Offense

I'm glad that Chief Masterson is involved (as much as it seems he can be due to McKenzie's covetous takeover of any type of discourse on the subject).
McKenzie cannot, however, extend his reach into other forms of public debate onto the issue. He doesn't want to hear about public safety, the issue of how to enforce a dormitory check, or even just how uncomfortable his paranoia is.
It seems he lives in fear and his influence seems to feeding others fear so even people who live a pretty peaceful life(yes, it's peaceful here if you don't count all the inattentive drivers) seem to feel the need to arm themselves 'just in case'. If it makes anyone feel better, I don't carry a gun, nor a knife, nor a slingshot, and I use words to convey my opinion. While studying chemistry, biology, music, or statistics, most students are at a campus to enrich their lives, to make the world functional for the future. A campus is a place to find the words one needs to be able to stop an escalated fight, to critically think about the past, and to debate peers about differences in culture, philosophy, and societal problems.
But McKenzie choose not to listen, deciding to be out of touch, insulting to other leaders in the community, and that doesn't make for good legislation.

Re: “Ag-Gagging the Truth

Maybe legislation will pass to require products made from bovine sources to include the statement, "This product from cow sources contains no rBGH nor has any cow been sucker punched." on every package.
To make sure these animals are treated ethically is to install video cameras in all of the dairies. It was done when mad cow disease was rampant, when bovines were stressed and crowded. It seems now this is a public health issue, and while I quit eating beef years ago, I can't trust my cheese source from Idaho. I'll boycott, how about you?

Re: “Boise City Council Asked to Affirm 'Ambitious and Unprecedented' Plan for Downtown Core

They need to do something about that conundrum that is the intersection of Front and 8th. What a piece of work that is! Bicyclists have to steer in front of cars to get to the bike lane, while motorists feel it's their chance to proceed while eastbound cars are stopped. It would be great if people would voluntarily slow down in downtown and the neighborhoods surrounding it. It isn't a freeway people! And for f's sake, get off the phone! It's a shame over the years that really great businesses that once defined downtown are gone. Kudos to those that survived. I think the more you walk, the more you see-

Re: “To Pay or Not to Pay: That is the Question: Local Performers and the Shadow Economy

What we're forgetting, though, is when a band clears the house. C'mon, because the reality could be, your band may not be that good. There are bands out there who don't even know how to sound check. Do they pay the sound guy extra for him to educate them? No. Do they treat the microphones, monitors, establishment with respect?

What one may consider artistic in front of your 10 year old niece may not translate well in front of some seasoned music fans. While mom may be encouraging, (we love you mom) your lyrics could possibly not fit the audience. Is your scope worldy or is it specific? Do you realize that even if you are good, you still might not make it?

Next time I go to the doctor or dentist, I'm gonna ask, 'Are you local? Cuz if you are, I'm not paying!'

Re: “Boise Musicians Jason 'Bug' Burke and Bill Parsons Need Your Help

After reading the snippet in the BW today, it seemed Blake's comment was directed to either Bug or Bill, but now reading the full list of comments, it could(and seems more likely) to be directed at

I hope the gents get well, and I hope something is done about the confusion.
