Hispanic population rises quickly

I congratulate The Colombian for publishing this piece about the many God-fearing Latinos in our mostly racist and hedonistic county. In my estimation, however, "diversity" is meaningless without "integration." Right now, the latter is 99.9% absent around here.

STEPS TO ENLARGING YOUR COMFORT ZONE

Your call to enlarge the "comfort zone" is nonsense. Case in point: In his entire life, Immanuel Kant(1724-1804), one of the most influential philosophers the world has ever seen, never traveled more than 10 miles from Königsberg, Germany. Yet he laid out the Nebular Hypothesis, in which he deduced that the Solar System formed from a large cloud of gas, a nebula. He thus attempted to explain the order of the solar system. Kant also correctly deduced that the Milky Way was a large disk of stars, which he theorized also formed from a much larger spinning cloud of gas. He further suggested the possibility that other nebulae might also be similarly large and distant disks of stars. These postulations opened new horizons for astronomy: for the first time extending astronomy beyond the solar system to galactic and extragalactic realms.
Moral: You can "Think Big" and still remain in a "Box."

Letting pets go tagless has a price

Although some of the ancient Egyptian animal cults started as early as the First Dynasty, if not before, the majority of animal worship was active in from the Twenty-sixth Dynasty on to the end of the Egyptian civilization on the advent of Christianity. Today, motorists with poodles on their laps run over humans with impunity, bathe their pooches in motels intended for people and splatter the landscape with dog droppings. Not only has Zoolatry replaced Deism, but the Animal Liberation Front now inflicts more terror than al Qa'ida. If you ask me, Animal Control is being run by Animal Worshipers. Hence, fewer fines.

I’m riding 'The Couv' wave!

I looked up "couve" in the dictionary. Nothing's listed. The nearest match is "cuve," French for "wine mat." Maybe Brancaccio has too many bottles on his "cuve." That's why he thinks Fort Vancouver is "The Couve." I "Burp!" to his campaign.

I like changing our name to "The Couv" because:

When you enter "couve" at dictionary.com the following message appears: "couve - no dictionary results." I suspect that the proponent of this campaign to rename Vancouver has had too much wine. See, in France, a "cuve" is a wine mat. If anything, we should have held on to "Fort Vancouver."

Herrera feels like big winner for D.C. office

What's so "amazing" about a 32 year-old getting elected to the United States Congress? Henry Clay, was elected at age 29 back in 1806. Rep. Adam Putnam (R-FL) is 27. Patrick T. McHenry (R-NC), took office at 29 in 2004. Fact is the Constitution bars persons under the age of 25 from serving in the House. Besides, she already said it was amazing. On Election Day. She also said her daddy was "amazing." I wish she'd forget about her "amazing" credentials and do something about the amazing number of beggars in Clark County.

Panel weighs new Interstate 5 bridge design

Whoever gave the Green Light to the plan which features vehicles high in the air over downtown Vancouver is not only preposterous, but petrifying. Sooner or later, one is going to fall off and land on who knows what. The latest design makes a lot more sense and on several levels, not the least of which is that the current bridge will continue to operate whilst the new one is being built.

The story behind the story of the acid hoax

It's great to see some first-rate detective work and some old-fashioned journalism around here. This scoop warrants Pulitzer Prize consideration. Further, Vancouver's police chief should take over "The Kyron Case."
