Excerpts

Councilwoman Pattisue Carranza... said, “I don’t think it’s time to raise flags. But there’s a message out there that needs to be one of be cautiously aware of your own body.

    I'm afraid I do understand - You do not yell fire in a crowded room even if there is a fire you tell the people that thenromapears to be getting warm and you slip out of the room

  • kingfish33919

    the funny looking word above really should read "the room appears"

    Thus: I’m afraid I do understand – You do not yell fire in a crowded room even if there is a fire, you tell the people that the room appears to be getting warm and you slip out of the room.

    Maybe - instead of "telling the people" - the bureaucrat just slips out of the room.

  • Have seen more military jeeps coming in on Ft. Morgan road just this morning. What is going on? Anyone know?
