In going over the minutes from the recent Downtown Management Commission today, I find it interesting that the Human Rights Commission has petitioned the Boulder City Council to allow camping in Boulder city parks. Could you imagine? Tons of homeless people camping in Bella's Park or Scott Carpenter Park - mayhem. It makes you wonder, how does a group called the Human Rights Commission expect to retain credibility with positions like this - allowing camping in the city parks! For those of you that don't know Boulder, it may sound rational to allow camping in city parks. However, those of you that do know Boulder understand that there are very few parks and an abundance of homeless...enough so that the parks would be overrun. There is mention in the minutes of the many fine programs and facilities that the City of Boulder does keep up to facilitate the care of homeless. The infrastructure is sound and quite capable to avoid having to turn our parks into the parking lot at Alpine Valley for a 1980's Dead show - not that there isn't a time and place for that (July 2016 Folsom Field http://www.deadandcompany.com/). It's just not appropriate for families and citizens that want to relax and enjoy a city park.

What does this have to do with Super Tuesday - it is Tuesday and it has been Super so far.
