Letters | Second-class citizens

Up there with a girlfriend on a Saturday afternoon, we were sitting on a small, recently constructed dock when an open space ranger approached us announcing that this was a 'sensitive environment' and the dock was only for fishing.

Letters | Bikers and hikers

Although I have been a mountain/BMX biker far longer than I've been riding dirt bikes (30 years vs. nine months), I find it infuriating how mountain bikers have thrown dirt bikers to the wolves over access. Fortunately, our helpful Congressional representative, Jared Polis, is working to fix that.

Letters | Show restraint in Libya

This time he wants the U.S. to attack a sovereign nation (Libya) without providing a shred of evidence that this nation has attacked, or is even a threat to, the USA. Nor does Danish provide any justification whatsoever for the U.S. to involve itself in the internal affairs of another nation.

Letters | Put it in perspective

Letters | We have other priorities

I am not a biker (well, I am a Harley biker) but (again) a man of few words, and I would like to see more effort put into cleaning up the politics and getting this country out of debt so our children and grandchildren can look forward to a good life, not one screwed up by bad politicians.

Letters | Danish’s disinformation

Reality: Obama's support of the protests has been weak. Eleven days into the protest Obama has made only one brief statement of mild support during an interview with a Wisconsin television affiliate.

Letters | The truth about pot

(Re: 'Keep your laws off patients' brownies,' Uncensored, Feb. 17.) When this legislator says that there aren't any studies about dosing with cannabis, she is dead wrong. She just hasn't done any research. In 1988, DEA Judge Francis Lawn had the gall to hold hearings on cannabis, and he released his findings after nearly three months of testimony.

Letters | GMOs and Roundup

The article about 'Frankenfoods' by Jefferson Dodge was well-written and included quotes from some credible sources. However, it missed an important point. The salient issue concerning GM crops is that they are genetically manipulated specifically to withstand the herbicide Roundup.

Letters | Dogs and open space

My girlfriend and I are both runners, her being much more serious and running five to 20 miles most days. She enjoys running the hilly trails around Boulder and often encounters dogs. Leashed dogs rarely cause a problem, but dogs off leash will sometimes run at her and trip her up.
