Letters | Enforce dog rules

Pamela White’s piece on the dog issue reassured me. I thought I was the only one who perceived uncontrolled dogs on trails and in the city parks as a problem.

Letters | Turning a mirror on Danish

In his article “Ten years after 9/11” (Danish Plan, Sept. 8), Mr. Danish asserts: “You’ll know we’ve won the war on terror when the Islamic world is 1) reasonably democratic, 2) reasonably secular, 3) only modestly corrupt, 4) more or less committed to the rule of law, and 5) fights jihadists more fiercely than we do. Alternatively, you’ll know that we’ve won the war on terror when the Islamic world stops treating its women like shit.”

Letters | A moot point?

I’ve been following the stories about GMO plantings, and I have a question that I’m not seeing brought up in the public debate, though I have heard it in private conversation, to wit: Isn’t the argument already a moot point, given the dispersal ratio of pollen?

Letters | Need more facts

Mr. Brownlee wrote, “The idea that farmers can grow whatever they want to grow, using whatever methods or technology they choose, and then sell their products anywhere they want or can is an artifact of an era that produced devastating long-term climate change and the greatest planetary extinction of 60 million years.” This statement implies that governments have the right to control what farmers grow, the technology they use, and [their ability] to sell their products where they want, for the greater good of a community. The last time I checked, this is communism.

Letters | Thanks for advocacy

(Re: “Hospital fails rape test,” Uncensored, Aug. 4.) Thank you, Pamela White, for your enduring vigilance, support and advocacy for survivors of sexual assault.

Letters | Danish misses point

On Boulder’s electricity municipalization issue (“Municipal power is cheap in Longmont, but not in Boulder,” Danish Plan, July 28), Paul Danish writes that Boulder will face much higher costs than the Longmont municipal power utility because of Boulder’s priority on renewable energy. He attributes this higher potential cost to the present differential between coal and renewable sources, but it does not follow that Boulder will pay more.

Letters | Measuring municipalization

Mr. Danish may be correct in his analysis of the Boulder municipal power plan. But his essay is just another volley in the back-and-forth debate, which can be fairly accurately summarized as: “It will be more expensive.” “No, it won’t.” “Yes, it will.” “Won’t!” “Will!”

Letters | Particle physics prophesies

At the end of this commentary is written, yet again, the erroneous statement that the Mayans (or the calendar they use) are predicting the end of the world on Dec. 21, 2012. Many Mayans argue that such prophecies are false, and this date simply marks a time of great transition.

Letters | Don't blame older workers

It is inflammatory, prejudiced and somewhat ridiculous to even insinuate that teens can’t find jobs because older people have taken them. There are so many things wrong with this theory that I hardly know where to start.

Letters | Danish's modest proposal

Again Paul Danish is clinging to his Soldier of Fortune roots, aka the promulgation of the military-industrial complex and the ever-increasing privatization of war, in his omission of our promotion and expenditures of foreign conflict and occupation as part of our current economic woes. Interesting how many corporations are riding on the coattails of predator drones and dead soldiers into once sovereign nations.
