A “Compromise” mea culpa

Someone could have won something. An honest “mea culpa” to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel. I really didn’t expect they would publish my “Compromise” letter. My expectations were wrong. This from today’s (April 16, 2021) Daily Sentinel:

“Compromise” – Maybe NOT!

Letter writer Linda Morton needs a lesson in semantics.  Perhaps Linda (and the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel Letters headline writer) both have “…much to learn about compromise.”  In the world of negotiating, “compromise” is not an acceptable outcome. The best-detailed definition of “compromise” I can find is from Merriam-Webster: “: settlement of differences by arbitration …

“Listening to You” [me] – Yeah, right!

Will this be the last posting on FlyingWBlog? Perhaps… Stand By…

You Answered – Did I Question?

I received a letter from my Junior Senator, John Hickenlooper yesterday, Sunday March 7, 2021. Wow – I guess he and his staff were working hard on Sunday even though he was probably “bleary eyed,” as one media outlet described our Senators after working so hard spending $1.9 TRILLON we don’t have on a on …

Integrity Part III – What Now?

President’s Day – a gratifying end to the latest episode of imp(r)eachment. Could it be the last – for a while, anyway? Maybe now we can get some actual important stuff done. First on my list, Election Integrity; even though many say there was “NO FRAUD” in the 2020 national election, I believe there are …

The First 2021 Congressional Echo

I have received my first letter from my Congresswoman Lauren Boebert. It’s kind of like a distorted echo bouncing back off a far canyon wall. Am I thrilled? Not exactly. The (form) letter is a bit lengthy – “verbosity” comes to mind. That part of the letter aside, I wonder why I received this letter: …

Captain, We have Contact

We have email Contact – could FAX communications with Rep. Lauren Boebert’s new House of Representative’s office actually happen. Maybe that capability to communicate with constituents is coming…maybe… My email below was sent 2/4/21 in response to a (solicited) email received from Lauren’s staff (below the below.) The redactions are to impersonalize the conversation for …

Still Communications Underserved!!

Frustrated? – Ya think I am? But I won’t give up. My Congresswoman is either ill-served by the deficit funded federal government she has been hired (by me and you) to direct, or she and her staff have yet figured out how to get the overly funded Congress Office Building staff to install a functioning …

How do you “KNOW” that?

Colorado Governor Jared Polis published a column in today’s Grand Junction, Colorado Daily Sentinel. I read it. I don’t understand it. The closing contained the dialog referred to in my contact form submitted email: Of course, if anyone else “knows” how climate change selects and impacts certain communities over others, I would appreciate them passing …

Am I Communications Underserved?

Facsimile (fax) is still the most convenient way to send mostly secure documents. When Internet (or private network) file transfer is not available or the means to attach a document to an Internet email or private network electronic mail message – Facsimile (as “old fashioned” as it may seem) is the only method somewhat secure …
