Re: “Case by case

Good job, mayor. Now we know that Carlyle has to inject up to $100 million into this system to get it up to par. That's in the court. You've done your job, stop this lawsuit.

Pretty please with sugar on top - stop this lawsuit before you cause more lifelong residents to move away because of your insane tax policies.

Re: “Sign of the times

Typical liberal hypocrisy. Save everything on the planet but allow me to destroy the rare plants to make a statement.

Re: “Sign of the times

Brian, I have reviewed your offer to punch me in the face, and I accept. I know it can be hard to recognize me from my photo, so you can find me at my job as a bouncer at Stockman's. No need to introduce yourself—just walk right up and sock me one.

Re: “Sign of the times

What everyone is missing....it's not about the flowers (although a disgrace), it's not about the rainforest, it's about terrorism. Yes I said it. Hear me out. Whoever carved that peace sign is now forcing their ideology on me, because everytime I look at the hill I no longer see a way to nature but rather someone's personal message. You're for peace, your way, great! But why force that on everyone? That's what terrorists do....they create a situation that no one can ignore because it gets their ideology tons of recognition (good or bad) it's all good. Why not storm the satellite tv stations in town and force them to show a peace sign on all their stations for a week? Everyone would be forced to see and deal with your ideology!! That's what you want, right? That's what terrorists want. Look, I'm not saying you're a terrorist, ok? But doing this ... this way, is the same approach a terrorist would use. You're forcing me to acknowledge your ideology by your available means. And like terrorist acts, now it's going to cost taxpayer dollars to clean up and fix the damage you caused. So, you're also taking my money dammit. Instead, why not try legitimate means? Or carve the outdated peace sign in your own yard or scratch it into the paint on your car? At least then I wouldn't have to see it every time I want to look at the hillside. Remember, that hillside is all of ours, the citizens, and you took it for your own personal use and destruction, for you own personal ideology. Think on that.

Re: “Sign of the times

The original story in the Missoulian was cheap hyperbole. Nothing new there. I'm sure that Missoula dog lovers tramp on more phlox everyday than the peace mongers managed to accomplish. Maybe Parks and Rec. could replant the peace sign in phlox. Not exactly sure what Brooks was trying to say but he got Aaron Flint's endorsement, never a good sign.

Great article! You have resuscitated my dying sense of sarcasm. Can't wait to read more comments from folks like "peace sign ring" dude! Keep it up!

Re: “Sign of the times

I've got a peace sign ring and, if I come across Dan, I'll share the love by leaving the symbol in the middle of his head.
What a smug, arrogant dimwit. World War 2 occurred because we didn't have the paces symbol to counteract the swastika??? Kind of how ISIL and other Islamist extremists will cower at the sight of your "coexist" bumper sticker?
Again, peace sign, ring, face. Maybe that can be the sign for idiots to respect public land and native plants intended for the enjoyment and enrichment of all.

Re: “Sign of the times

You are right. It's due time that Missoula get in on the ecological destruction of the planet. 78 million acres of rainforest isn't enough. Let us deprive the future patrons of our little Montana city of our local plant-life stat! Right, Greg Strandberg?

Re: “Sign of the times

There are plants up there? I see a tree at the top, but...c'mon. We have nothing better to get worked up about...some stepped on plants? We cut down 78 million acres of rainforest last year - give me a break.
