Reader: "The easiest way to get rid of an irritating ex? Move to Arapahoe County."

"Coolorado," Patricia Calhoun, November 24

We're #1

Colorado is also the only state where ex-cheerleaders, sorostitutes and douche hipsters can fit in simply by throwing a kiss face, wearing flannel or showing a peace sign for a photo. The state where people who are actually from Colorado no longer seems to exist, and where sporting events have become social gatherings.

While there is some sarcasm here, Colorado is, was and will always be #1 in my heart!

The easiest way to get rid of an irritating ex? Move to Arapahoe County, and tell the district attorney that h/she is stalking you. Who cares if taxpayers will have to cover their keep for 48 years?

These prosecutors don't give a shit about justice! Just the fucking numbers! What a waste of resources, and a horrible way to ruin a life. Fuck the Arapahoe County DA!

Michael Milos

No prosecutor ever got elected on the platform that he or she was soft on crime. There's very little downside for a prosecutor to act like this, and possibly some upside by trumpeting how "tough" she is on crime.

Thanks for presenting Arapahell in such a conspicuously damning format in the "Habitual-Criminal Filings" table. Even the "caption only readers" will get the message.

Heaven Help Us!

You shouldn't be mocking Moses holding the Ten Commandments, written with the finger of God, as well as the Sermon on the Mount, because they are very sacred indeed! Please read Galatians 6: 7, 8 of the New Testament. From your own heart, call upon God, who is the Spirit, and confess your sins unto him as he waits to hear from you. The sin of mockery! God will forgive your sin of mockery.

I was eager to read about a website called Patheos promoting religious awareness and providing a forum for faith-based discussion. Imagine my disappointment, then, at finding the piece all but unreadable. The part of the article immediately following the introduction (regarding Warren Cole Smith's post on Patheos) totally disrupted the thread of the story and required several tries just to assimilate. The comments lifted directly from the site? Cringe-worthy. A context-free collection of irrelevance contrived to fill half a page.

It's clear Ms. An never bothered to ask herself exactly what story she wanted to tell. I follow Westword's articles, one might almost say religiously, but this one shook my faith.

Religion is as religion does (or no religion). All that matters is, does it make a person a better person?

Ask a Mexican, Gustavo Arellano, November 17

play by the rules

Every time I ask the Mexican why his landsmen can't follow the rules, as mine did, I strangely get no answer. Follow the immigration rules or get out now!
