only in Boulder....
Yes, its true there are a plethora of insane ideas and laughable policies in hatched in Boulder. I mean, how ridiculous. Can you even imagine that planners in 1957 actually adopted a guide for growth for Boulder and vicinity. The nerve of these idiots to become the first American city to establish a tax dedicated to the acquisition and maintenance of open space landsin 1976. Im also sure that you were all up in arms while in grade school just a few years ago, when the radical idea of limiting smoking in public places was initiated. My god, what an interesting debate this generated. Forward thinking icons like Peter Boyles and John Caldara got lots of time with incessant talk debate and editorial about political rights violations effecting property owners. We all know that second hand smoke is not problematic. In fact, dont we all love that fine smell when we sit in a hole or paddle at Golden, or take out in other great picnic spots. Over 1,000 cities in the U.S. now have similar policies. Lets forget about other ventures such as the Boulder Creek watershed study by the City of Boulder and the USGS. Can you even imagine such behavior by a city to actually throw money at an in-depth analysis of Boulder Creek water quality. Valuable money that could be used on road improvements (a nationwide favorite) to measure several parameters not normally regulated or considered to be problematic in streams. Oh, I forgot the aging and outdated water park designed by Gary Lacey. Look at this thing. Although certainly outdated, it was one of the first water parks built in the west, and this obviously flawed Boulderite has gone on to design other playparks around the west, as well. Stupid Boulderites (this should be a good one to grab on to as everyone surely has an opinion on how a playpark should be designed etc). As we all know, making change certainly comes from the top down. We know that the individuals or small meaningless communities have no business in trying to make a change! F
ing Boulder is right. Thats why we are in such a thriving state of things led by such a powerhouse of thoughtthe shrub.
Go get em boys. Im sure youll have a good time poking at this one. To be honest though...it is funny to get the ribbing at work in Lakewood or in the new or wherever. I'm from Boulder and I"m proud. Don't you just love it here, where the poor and the very weathy roam. Screw the middle class anyway.
