Re: “CCDC Talks About 'Possible' Eighth Street Closure

Yes, and yes again. The Europe example is right on. In my travels, such streets thrive because people love to go out in a relaxed, open, and people centered place. My guess; if they do this it will be so successful and popular that the talk will be about making even more of downtown pedestrian only. Go downtown any night and look where the people are - on 8th Street! Why? Because the relative absence of cars. Get rid of the few that park there and go down the street.

Europe has known this for decades and it's why people go to Europe.

Re: “Ed Rush-Pt. 1

May I humbly point out that neither of you have disputed Cope's arguments nor have either of you offered any "solution" of any kind to the challenges of education. All you do is carp about Cope.

The first thing to do is reject Luna's "plan". The next thing is to get rid of Luna. Cope is calling for both of these things. Then we start over, with the people most qualified to improve Idaho's education methodologies, none of whom is called Luna or Otter.

BTW, Cope irritates me too, with his incessant haranguing of Idaho Republican tactics and ideology. He's a one trick pony. But that's why I read him, because this is a one trick state, and I don't much like the tricks it plays.

Re: “The 'Hoods of Ada County

A fun read. I agree with the above: follow up with the Bench,downtown and northeast Boise. You will find the most diversity on the Bench, Boise's most real neighborhood.

Re: “Another Stab At

Cope's article against the proliferation of guns in our society is not original, nor is bikeboy's position of being a gun "enthusiast". Bikeboy's criticism of Cope is spurious. I prefer Cops's unoriginal article to your position.

Re: “Another Stab At

There is nothing original about being against the proliferation of guns in our society, just as there is nothing original in being a gun "enthusiast". Your criticism of Cope's column is spurious. In my opinion, his unoriginal position is superior to yours.
