Asbestos abatement is very expensive and time consuming when you are working around old construction that needs to be saved and restored. Once it became a demolition the asbestos abatement becomes much easier and cheaper as you contain it as you go. Always looking for a conspiracy and something to be mad about. I can assure you the crews working took great care and removed the asbestos properly as they are the people who will be affected the most by not doing it correctly!
It is nice to see a person of good conduct and with the scope of a community orientated person to be in our legislature. We have had (and do have) some real goofballs representing us, and I'm still trying to figure out how they all get elected.
Kim did a grand job looking out for the people of Montana and I applaud her for doing so.
I don't know about my fellow Montanans current bent on politics in the State and Nation but I will say that I am fed up with the Gangster Politics of the Republican Mafia... they are an embarrassment to the whole country, it seems that they forget that we are all Americans and we need each other to stay healthy and prosperous as a nation... something the Koch Cartel has fed to the extreme right wing... it is pathetic and our State is suffering from the same demented politics. It is high time we said stop it and start putting country and the people first rather than forcing the world to our way of Democracy because it ain't working, and we are becoming more of a dictatorship than a republic. Look around. Let's change!
My thoughts exactly, only expressed far better than I can
Excellent column and a good shout out, Dan.
Is it just a coincidence that all the nonsense-BS bills Dan cited were introduced by repuglikan pukes? Me thinks not.
I'm surprised that for taking her job seriously and trying to do real work, address real problems, that Ms. Dudik wasn't formally censured or reprimanded by her "colleagues".
We (nationwide, at all levels, not just in MT) need a whole lot more public officials like her and a whole lot fewer of the type Dan pointed out in his column.
What I have not understood the whole time they were tearing it down, was the main reason they cited for the need for demolition vs. remodel was that asbestos abatement would be too expensive... yet when they tore it down there was NO containment that would be necessary with asbestos.... So... they lied... or a lot of construction workers and downtown folk are going to be in a bad way in a few years..
to be a vibrant, living city, I think you need to respect history and the wish of the community. Those were completely overridden in the name of progress and profit. These do not necessarily create vibrancy. Dismissing our past, not respecting and honoring our past, is not making it a "living" city. They do not have to be opposites.
Dan, is this more of your satire? LOL Add this to your "Islamophobia" rhetoric:
SURPRISE! Im baaaaaaak. LOL
First you have Mark Twains description of Jerusalem under Ottoman Muslim rule:
Rags, wretchedness, poverty and dirt, those signs and symbols that indicate the presence of Moslem rule.
Then you have Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Ali A. Rizvi

I would appreciate it if some of the Merc construction workers would set a small pile of bricks outside the construction zone so residents can pick them up as souvenirs. I'd like to put a couple in my garden.
And if Dudik wanted to run for and win the Attorney General race in 2020, how would she do it?
Tongue in cheek is really fake news...STOP IT! Idiots will believe anything!
What are you on about, mate?
Laughed till I cried. Then came full circle again. THANK YOU, Dan.
Ok, my bad. I should not have mentioned incestuous relationships even though they are out there, and girls are being impregnated, and I should have said "people" and not "men" because there are some truly uninformed women out there also. And Dan, really? Life begins across a crowded room? From now on I'm not making eye contact with ANYONE. It could kill me. Literally.
In regards to HB 595, I just cannot believe that the men who are running things in the House are really, truly ready to throw women back into the dark ages. What are you gentlemen going to do when YOUR daughter, wife, niece, is raped and impregnated by a monster? I like your column Dan, but come on....across a crowded room life begins? From now on I'm not making eye contact with ANYONE. It could kill me. Literally.
Wow. I just cannot believe that the MEN who are running things really, truly, want to send women back into the dark ages. What are you gentlemen going to do when YOUR daughter, niece, wife, or the incestuous relationship you are now hiding, is raped and impregnated by a monster....? I like your column Dan, but come on, really? HB 595 needs to be rejected and put in the trash can where it belongs.
Right, we are not all Christians. Get involved...good idea. Think I'll call the legislators today. No wait they're gone. What's today? Maybe I'll call Congress? No wait...they're gone. And here I thought there was separation of church and state. " illegalise sperm"? What a novel idea! But then I wonder how transgender men will get their "wives" pregnant?
Santamonious blather award. When are you people going to figure out we are not all Christians and we have separation of church and state. But hey I heard Syrian refugee children could use some help being saved. You could sign-up for that and actually make a difference. You know because they are non fetus form children in immediate peril and suffering.
Oh what's that I hear? Crickets? Yea that's what I thought. Save it- no pun intended.
The #1 cause of abortion is sperm. Why don't you male republicans ever propose legislation to illegalise sperm? It's the man's fault it gets up in those Fallopian tubes in the first place. Why is it the ladies are always getting blamed for the wanton infiltration of the jizz? Grow up for cripesake!
Snark is such an overused vehicle.
Dan, I think you should really consider taking a how to write satire course.
Now this is funny as probably true
