A LITTLE MORE ACCOUNTABILITY, A LITTLE LESS ENABLING
By Max R. Weller
Read Longmont police: Man stabbed over Facebook post from the Daily Camera. My online comment is copied here:
Easy for me to believe, given that there are several cyberstalkers here on the Daily Camera website: mstdye/bndr, travispickle, haydukelives1, haydukelives2, haydukelives3, et al.
I hope they don’t try to hurt anybody with a knife, but you never know . . .
(And if they try to hurt me, I expect I’ll be able to take care of myself.)
> Sometimes, the DC serves up a fastball right down the middle of the plate: Virtual Editorial Board: Earth Hour. My online remarks follow:
I don’t have any lights at my homeless campsite, nor do I light candles there.
Sorry, but I’ll have to pass on the St. Julien, too.
Earth Hour seems like an event for the well-heeled, who wish to feel good about themselves — which is the same reason they support the FAILED homeless shelter/services industry here in Boulder, CO. Just another wealthy elite affectation.
> In the Denver Post: 32 indicted in massive Colorado marijuana trafficking investigation. Quoting from the report:

> Here’s another interior view of the overpriced — $200,000 per unit — Housing First apartments at 1175 Lee Hill:
Boulder Shelter for the Homeless Facebook photo
OM Build in Madison, WI can construct a Tiny House with the same amenities for $5,000 per unit. That means forty (40) homeless men and women could be housed for the same cost as one (1) HF apartment.
Somebody must be getting rich off of this Housing First scam here in Boulder, CO. Don’t hold your breath waiting for any criminal investigation, however . . .
