Re: “Test of time

James Lee Burke is a dear friend to me even though we have never met. His writing resonates wih my Southern White Man ways and education and regard for the fairer sex. Enjoyed your noble authorship since I turned 16 years old and now I am 62 and counting on your contant friengship. Just now catching on to yout artful mind. Thank You Sir. Dr. Tom (Ret.)

Re: “Tossed out

I personally don't think anyone really cares about this because hardly anyone knows about it. Reporting on it was very scant, though perhaps that was the idea.

Re: “Carbon footprint

I like the idea of solar panels on city buildings. I feel it won't get done, however, because when people realize the $500 million bonding debt hole we've dug for ourselves is truly a problem, funding habits of city government will change. Let's not even get into the current Missoula housing bubble. Any ideas on when that'll come crashing down on people's heads? I hope we hear more on that.

Re: “Etc.

Brian Schweitzer built his political career on busing Montana seniors to Canada to buy their drugs.

Whose political career will be built with the work they do ferrying medicine to Montana from Washington?

Re: “Mailer daemon

I agree with Dan. I think the mailer combined with the TV ad demonizing Bullock are a sign of desperation by the Gianforte campaign.

Re: “Postal service

People shoving uninvited/unwanted flyers under my mailbox "flag" have now bent it. The business owners don't deliver the flyers themselves, but hire unresponsible workers. Most of these flyers end up on the ground or flying down the street as trash. They are awful when it has rained or snowed. I refuse to patronize any business that is shoved or taped onto my mailbox. HANDS OFF MY MAILBOX !!

Re: “Test of time

Only one quibble with this excellent article. Wayfaring Stranger and House of the Rising Sun are two of the best books I have read in a long, long time, and by the man who I consider our best living writer. But Wayfaring Stranger is actually set in 1946, not 1956.

Re: “Mailer daemon

Worldwide, most Muslim terrorists target other Muslims. That's why the highest number of terrorist fatalities are Muslim.The Shia hate the Shunni, the Sunni hate the Kurds, on and on.

This link has a graphic showing the highest concentration of terrorist attacka are in Pakistan, Afghanistan and parts of Africa:

Re: “Mailer daemon

You do realize that Islam=Muslim, don't you? What you just said is that Islam is at war with itself, which makes as little sense as the junk links you posted.

Re: “Mailer daemon

Islam is at war with Muslims and non-Muslims all over the world.

World-wide terrorism attacks increased from about 1800/year in 2000, to about 4200 in 2011. But from 2011 to 2014, the attacks spiked to nearly a whopping 14,000. You can glean from this remarkable statistic ( http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-33… ) that something significant is going on here. But the last place you can find out exactly exactly what is in any newspaper.

It's next to impossible for the average person to understand the big picture from our first source of information gathering, the news media. That has always been the case, except now our main sources of media are hyper vigilant NOT to report U.S. vulnerability to Islamic terrorism. News can take days before an expert somewhere in the information chain will admit that a beheading here or an explosion there was actually a terrorist attack. In addition, all follow up information is equally veiled.

During WW II, there was zero immigration into the U.S. from Japan, Germany or Italy. The Japanese were interned in large numbers, as were the less well known interment of German and Italian settlers in the U.S.
Is it strategically wise to allow near unfettered movement of people in and out of your country from countries at war with us?
WW II is the last war the United States won.

I have found it unproductive to get into a 'he said,' 'she said' spitting match. What I have found useful is ferreting out experts that have devoted years of their professional lives to understand what is going on. But the internet helps.

Here are good starter sources:

Re: “Collateral damage

Just a reminder, Hillary Clinton's Iraq vote was "yes" with major conditions which were not met by President Bush. She did vote for that war, along with many others, war but is not to blame for it. http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_pol…

It doesn't matter where you are, New Missoulians are LOUD, and quite rude in the process.
I've stopped going to many places because of this.

Re: “Earning an encore

I was in the balcony for RA on Saturday night and Lake Street Dive on Tuesday night. It may have been the same crowd. Both drunk, both horrible, and more interested in hearing themselves than the any of the four acts. I can't say if they were worse for the opening acts of Gregory Alan Isakov or Amanda Shires because both are more quiet and contemplative acts but the noise level was cacophonous! In my 45 years of concert going, starting in 1972 with Led Zeppelin and ending with Lake Street Dive, I've not been in a ruder crowd. It seemed to me that a great many there had no real interest in hearing good music. I'll not be going to see acts at the Wilma again, nor do I think Ryan Adams will be back there. Thanks for being so classy Missoula...
