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.

Letters | Downside of natural gas

American boys dont need immediate surgical correction at birth! After only a few generations, Americans have completely forgotten that this all started to diminish sexual pleasure, and they were taught to think circumcision is normal and necessary. Cutting off a very specialized healthy organ that is working perfectly is not normal.

Letters | Ally, not asexual

The very notion that circumcised men could be 'missing out' is absurd. All one has to do is check the facts or interview the doctors who daily treat patients in male sex clinics. Finally, the statement, 'Without the foreskin, the glans slowly becomes keratinized, with the skin growing thicker and tougher.'

Letters | Someone spank these kids

See, there's this thing called foodborne illness. Restaurants don't just throw away food willy-nilly. That's money going right out the door. Same as grocery stores. It's not about not wanting to help, it's about protecting the public from food that may not be safe for consumption.

Letters | Sustainable wine

Part of the 'paradigm change' involves letting go of the snobbery and realizing that high-end wine is a teacup in the ocean: Almost all wine is consumed relatively young. Also, bag-in-box keeps wine fresher than any way of saving part of a bottle.
