Re: “Tensions build over a new RBTL theater

Arnie Rothchild's dream is not my dream. I'm doubtful a shiny new performing arts center is on the bucket list of most city residents. I do not want state tax dollars paying for this project.

Rothschild says Theater on the Ridge is too small. If you sell out one performance, have another performance. Better too small and full than too big and not full.

Re: “How to reduce poverty: Boost workers' wages

Johnny...it takes enlightenment corporations to value employees as much or more than they value top executives.

Re: “Trump's transgender ban: Another time to resist

@Miller
Anything that undermines Trump's credibility, to those who thinks he has some, is a good thing. Anything that stops Trump from carripying out his insane plans is a good thing.

Resist, provoke, persist.

Leaking doesn't have to involve wire taps. The whistleblower could be someone on the inside terrified by what Trump is doing and feels compelled to warn us.

Re: “City Council will hold Parcel 5 public forum

In many instances in other cities, the new arts attraction gets all the attention for funding and from the public while other legacy institutions suffer.

Re: “Feedback 7/19

Douglas W. Adams made the decision I made more than 5 years ago. I certainly hope both of us represent a trend.

The status quo is the problem. Whether that refers to voters who repeatedly elect and re-elect the same politicians or whether that means the broader view of staying with the same party you've always belonged to.

Part of the problem can be remedied with term limits or voters willing to vote outside their party. The more difficult step to take is to change political party affiliation. Whether you've been active in your party or not, changing parties can be hard decision to make. You'll be fighting history, tradition and personal convictions. You'll be giving up a familiar sense of belonging.

However, leaving your political party will send a message that will be hard to deny. No organization wants to see membership dwindle. I would say that loss of members should force an organization to recognize and correct the issues causing people to leave, yet I do not believe that actually happens.

I am happy with my decision to leave the Democratic Party. If enough people get fed up with the two major political parties, maybe we the people can force the change that we the people so desperately need.

Re: “Feedback 7/19

Did you see pictures of the Jazz Fest. There were so many people enjoying Parcel 5. A building on that site would act as crowd control.
