Re: “A weird one

If Carrie Jamrogowicz were copying Stacy Lear, why doesn't she gain 50 lbs to be fat like Stacy Lear?

Re: “Biking Bad

"I cut down many of the trees on Meow Mix in 2005, something for which I still feel ashamed, but what was I suppossed to do, quit my trails job. I fully agree with Mr. Power that any ecological damage caused by the original Meow Mix trail is dwarfed by the impacts from the Lolo N.F.' efforts to close the trail. "
Don't be ashamed. All one has to do is open a sattelite view on Google Maps and there are much greater damages being inflicted by others who simply have deep pockets. This dialogue has made me grow quite weary. I'm from missoula and my Dad and brothers rode the rattlesnake every day on their dirt bikes without issue. Seriously people there are millions of acres of forested land and a trail affects such a small percentage that I give serious kudos to those who are willing to break their back creating new trails. This new mentality that we were never supposed to use the land that is available to us, but rather leave it to timber companies and mining operations to rape and pillage drives me crazy. Stop hugging trees and use them. Stop tearing up artwork that many man hours went into creating and use your resources to plan more recreational opportunities.

Re: “Slap in the face

When a 16 year old student commits suicide rather than deal with the ordeal of a trial and the publicity of her sexual assault by a teacher, can we open our eyes to who gets blamed and shamed? As my 94 year old Grandma Polly said, " It's always the woman's fault."

Re: “Our Missoula

Excellent review of an excellent book.

One clarification: Krakauer did not rush the book. The book was complete early this year, and was slated for fall release. Rather, Doubleday rushed publication in response to Rolling Stone retracting its story about an alleged gang rape at a University of Virginia fraternity.

(He talked about this in an interview, possibly with Charlie Rose.)

Re: “Living history

It's great that Tri published this untold story. I have some of the photos, events and descriptions from some of the 'mountain men' that were there, but only a bit from the student's opinions. Glad you found this informative and moving! I am finishing up on the real biography of John Johnston complete with genealogy. see Great article.

Re: “Etc.

I'll make sure to tell the City Council and the mayor (if he's there next week) not to waste $3.5 million of your money on streets that aren't broken.

Re: “Jobs

Can Grunke please suggest ways to rally for better pay?

Sounds like an office worker's prognosis to me.

Re: “One voice

Great comment! These extractive industries and ranchers seem to think that OUR public lands are there for them to exploit pretty much for free.

Re: “Slap in the face

As a rape survivor in Missoula and as a victim in the late 90s both quietly ignored and defamed by the University AND the DAs office - siting my egregious reputation as being "loose" as a reason to not press charges -- what should truly be recognized is that all the victims deserve an apology. What I endured was awful -- but was more awful is the powers that be basically ignored it and turned it into being my fault. All because they didn't want any bad press.
