Even the wild critters come to Pearl Street Mall to watch the weirdos, and more

HELP BOULDER’S OWN HOMELESS PEOPLE, NOT TRANSIENTS!

By Max R. Weller

A young female moose is seen late Sunday night on Boulder’s Pearl Street Mall. Police officers helped coax the animal out of downtown.

From the archives: Everything Boulder, CO embraces becomes a travesty. Excerpt copied below:

“Compassion” for the poor and homeless; a real travesty, with more homeless people from all across America on Boulder’s streets than ever before. It’s literally an industry employing many social workers, case managers, mental health counselors, addiction counselors, and the list goes on. Their goal is to expand their influence and secure more power and wealth for themselves, never mind so-called nonprofit status under IRS rules. MORE HOMELESS PEOPLE = MORE MONEY. It ought to be a crime for enabling the ongoing degradation of their fellow human beings and making a living thereby.

Well, it looks like gay folks can get married ANYWHERE in America now. I fully support the SCOTUS decision. Here’s hoping gay couples will quickly learn to cope with the myriad issues of divorce: property settlement, child custody and visitation, spousal support, etc. Welcome to reality; ain’t no rainbow in it.

BTW, will U.S. Rep. Jared Polis and his partner, Marlon Reis — who have adopted two babies already — hasten to take the plunge into wedded bliss? Walk the walk, as well as talk the talk. I’d ask the same question of any heterosexual couple in similar life circumstances.

Jared and Marlon

Media whore that Jared is, he couldn’t hope to gain any more publicity than with a huge wedding, perhaps set in the natural beauty of Boulder County, CO. I’m not going to hold my breath waiting for it, but Aimee Heckel at the Daily Camera would die for a chance to cover the story!

Still nothing in the local news media to confirm yesterday’s rumor I heard about a break-in and vandalism at Bridge House, supposedly involving clients’ birth certificates and other paperwork kept in unlocked file cabinets. I was skeptical of the source, a doper who has been hanging around Boulder for years, but because he’s in the taxpayer-funded Ready to Work program run by BH I thought he might possibly know what he was talking about. It surpasses belief that Isabel McDevitt could successfully bury such news, so I’m ready to conclude it was all baloney. Mea culpa. I’ll try to be more skeptical in the future.

Tonight at my campsite: meat, meat, and more meat. Haven’t indulged my inner carnivore since Monday, and I’m tired of cottage cheese and other bland nourishment.
