Re: “What stands between Steve Bullock and the presidency?

When it's all said and done and 2020 is over (and if a Dem is elected), all Bullock can really hope for is a cabinet-level position. To think otherwise is silly.

Re: “Commissioners will take a second look at the sheriff's overtime budget

Is it more cost-effective to just keep paying overtime? I wonder if that's cheaper than hiring a new officer and paying payroll taxes for them and giving them benefits. When you factor 2 to 3 officers in...well, I'd like to see some numbers on that, and I'd imagine the commissioners would as well.

Re: “Mountain Line gets a Zero Fare extension

I'd appreciate it if more buses ran later, and also ran on Sunday/holidays.

I feel many riders would be happy to pay a quarter for a ride if we'd direct the money to those things.

Many of us work on Sundays or late at night. Many of us that do so don't have cars.

Why are the buses mostly catering to the 9-to-5 crowd?

Re: “At UM, the future is in cherry wood lockers

I'd like to say that UM's priorities are askew, but we've all known this has been the case for years now.

Re: “Tracking a mobile home park's decades-long decline

Great report. I'm looking forward to seeing something similar on our Reserve Street Homeless Camp.

Re: “With Montana's Medicaid expansion on Trump's chopping block, what else is at stake?

Why should the 1 million Montanans care about the 79,000 that don't have healthcare?

Seems harsh, but it's a fair question.

I mean...

We don't care about all the people taking on tens of thousands in student debt.
We don't care about the seniors that haven't seen a cost of living increase.
We don't care about our $20 trillion in national debt.
We don't care about our endless wars.

Why is this issue so important all of a sudden?

I figure it's because lots of people are making money off it. That's usually the main impetus for most things in the world today.
