Feedback From Jan. 4 and Beyond

E-Z being green



Cover story, Jan. 4, "Team Wolf"
Controlling the population of voracious predatory animals is a good thing. Killing them all off for fun is not. Huge difference.

Nobody does sunset better than wolves.

Tell that to sheep owners, cattle owners and flock owners. The depredation of stock to small ranchers can be devastating.

True, but there's a happy medium.

Wonderful piece!

Private Eye, Jan. 4, "Started Over"
Dear John: Having "been there" as it were re. John and Yoko, I took pleasure in reading your candid: "I was never a fan of Yoko." Whew, glad somebody finally said it. So just to add weight to my "Whew!" I was there when she did her dumb piece at St. Martin's School of Art, B.J. (Before John) with her first husband. The Bag Piece where they cavorted about inside a black bag for about 30 minutes on the drawing studio floor with the students crammed in raked seats in the form of a mini coliseum as per the drawing studio of the period. I was there too when she miscarried in St. Charlotte's Hospital. Me on the floor above with my newborn daughter, Liberty, and she downstairs driving the hospital crazy. Sad, but it too, became a show. Then again at Robert Fraser's gallery for John and Yoko's "white on white" show with kitsch charity collecting boxes. Sum total? Pretty vacuous.

I would like to heartily raise a glass to CW's past, present and future and hope that you all think more of new trails than good 'ol days.

Film review, Jan. 4, I, Tonya
I am sad that they did not use the new Sufjan song. Anyone intrigued by Tonya's story needs to also listen to it. Apparently he has wanted to write a song for years and the film encouraged him to do it sooner than later. It is amazingly well done.

Blog post, Jan. 11, "Dabakis the Thespian"
Acting must be a prerequisite.

Yep, not the best actor.

Is it really "acting" if you're telling your own life story? Either way, it was a fascinating show. I loved it.

Blog post, Jan. 11, "Bag the Bag advocates hope to build momentum in 2018"
Salt Lake let's get with the times. I moved from a city where plastic bags are no longer available and haven't been for a few years now. Reusable or paper are the only way to go.

Plastic bags are such trash. I liked what L.A. did. You have to pay a few cents, and the bags are more durable. And still recyclable. Best to "incentivize" good behavior.

Let's do it and and recycle the ones we have to pave the roads.

Plastic bags are too much of a nuisance for only having one use before being tossed. Get rid of them and buy your own reusable bag to take with you.

I bring my reusable bags 90 percent of the time. If everyone was doing it, then we wouldn't have to have a ban. People will usually do what is easiest.

I'm so in!

At least charge for them.

Haven't used plastic bags in years and never want to again.

I'm in Europe a couple of times a year, and I take my reusable bags because they mostly do not have plastic. If Trump can force non-morality down our throats, the rest of us can fight for this.

I like the ones that say THANK YOU on them.
