A LITTLE MORE ACCOUNTABILITY, A LITTLE LESS ENABLING
By Max R. Weller
Read the report from the Daily Camera: Boulder County sheriff: Elk put down following N. Foothills crash near Hygiene. My online comment to the DC website is copied below:
Here’s an instance where a freshly killed game animal might have been donated to a “soup kitchen” for the benefit of the poor among us.
However, despite the many nonprofits providing food to needy people here in Boulder County, I don’t think that any of them are capable of handling a whole elk — which is a lot more complicated than dealing with donated canned goods and bread/pastries.
Hard to understand, when you consider the millions of dollars these nonprofits take in every year . . . Hire a butcher to process the elk (or other large game animal) when the occasion arises!
Read about what they do in Alaska. Once again, we can see that Colorado (and that includes Boulder County, of course) is not at all “progressive” despite the claims of its more arrogant residents.
BTW, I quit eating at any of the free food giveaway venues here in Boulder years ago, and instead buy my own food at King Soopers on Table Mesa. This is made possible by my generous supporters at the corner of N. Broadway & U.S. 36, to whom I’m very grateful. And, besides cash, I received another McDonald’s gift card yesterday — I do LOVE their double cheeseburgers!
Here’s something that Boulderites can point to with justifiable pride: With atomic clock at CU-Boulder, NIST sets new precision records, also in the DC. Reminds me of the second-most frequently asked question I hear from transients: “What time is it?”
As always, the bums’ most frequent query is, “Do you have a cigarette?”
That’s all for today, folks . . .
