Calling this a "report" is a major overstatement. I learned who played when from the Alibi Music Calendar. At least when I read it in the Alibi Calendar it was relevant to my plans for the upcoming week. Hey, Caterwaul! Who played the Kosmos on December 18, 2010? Who cares?!
I particularly love the lists of bands that you didn't bother to listen to. Hey, I can support local music like that. I'm doing it right now!
It's incredible to see the world of sports doing what they can to contribute to the good.
Really? Will "The World of Sports" decouple itself from the military? No more flyovers, no more advertisements urging youngsters to equate violence with manhood? Maybe stop glorifying violent retribution? Will the Bruins swear off punching their opponents for competitive gain?
I didn't think so.
Bradley Manning gets 20 years and the murderers, liars and thieves that he exposed remain free.
Yesterday, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals said "we don't care if he IS innocent" to Carlsbad's Carl Case. Convicted of murder 25 or so years ago, Mr. Case got the 10th Circuit's permission (!) to appeal his conviction, convinced New Mexico judge Martha Vasquez that his conviction was a fix (new DNA evidence, witnesses recanted, old evidence of his innocence that the DA hid exposed), and the Court of Appeals says "Wrong answer!" Proving his innocence was not good enough for a new trial, much less getting released.
Its so glorious being an American, where at least I know I'm free!
Life is a resource drain and a burden on taxpayers -- so kill yourself.
Science? I hope you point your index finger up and grimace smugly when you say that...
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha --- I get it! Its because Mohamed = terrorist, right?! Can you believe those Mohamedan savages? It's so backward to kill innocent bystanders with your own body, instead of, say, a flying robot. I thank Jesus every day for our bravely-bunkered keyboard pilots, courageously battling the pixillated heathens face-to-webcam-to-face.
I love being instructed in which Classic Rock bands are and are not cool. Nope, no quotes around cool -- its as real as "post-punk."
Golly, it sounds like we should stop sending money to Israel. And wouldn't it be embarrassing if we let Israel's heart-warming loyalty to the USA lead to its sacrificing its young in Iran for us? No, no! They're too good! We must forbid it!
Underutilized? Meaning "no one's making any money off it?"
The bike path and foot trails are actually pretty heavily traveled.
If you can't find the river, you're a moron. Making the river accessible to morons is unnecessary.
Somewhere, a long time ago, I heard that the bosque's designation as a state park was a limitation on the City's ability to develop it...?
Thanks for showing up, Alex. Somehow I was unaware of the town hall.
People do things that we judge to be evil.
And shooting people that are not rabid criminals in the name of Protecting and Serving is evil.
But that does not mean that the police are evil. It means that our society is a framework that places policepeople in untenable situations. They are required to commit acts, the widely-varying consequences of which are occasionally - and retroactively - judged as evil.
I would recommend more humanity, but it's not reliably profitable.
How about going back to the precinct system that worked perfectly well for the last 100 years?
And fuck your fucking early voting and online tools. I don't have a goddam smartfone attached to my face to check who's taken a shit on facebook every 10 minutes. Not everyone checks online before undertaking routine tasks.
Sure, I already knew who I was going to vote for for President in April, but this was a long ballot and I think it's important to wait for all the info on the lesser offices and bonds and constitutional amendments -- and that means waiting til Election Day.
Early voting was introduced as an alternative to absentee ballots -- if you could not vote on Election Day. Don't try to turn that around and tell me I'm a dumbass for voting on Election Day.
Still warm and fuzzy about the Alibi's coverage :)
