    Nice potshot at Ames by Denver Post columnist

    I just read this in the print edition... although it doesn't say it here, the headline in the paper referred to Annapolis as the "Anti-Ames"

    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    I ate a bucket of mussels with a glass of Australian sauvignon blanc while gazing at fishing boats. Try doing that in Ames, Iowa.
    Seriously. Where is the ******* harbor in Ames, Iowa? We are a small town in an agriculture state. We make do with what we have. How does that make us intrinsically better or worse than an East Coast city? You can't compare things that are existentially different.

    We need to start winning at high-visibility athletics to get people to pick on some other unsuccessful college town.

    Ames has Long John Silvers, and they used to server beer (not sure if they do anymore) - close enough!

    After reading that one article, it's clear he's got no skill as a writer or taste as a person.

    here's another equally bad article by Henderson... I think "miracle" is a bit overboard, wouldn't you say? I mean seriously, it's not like Auburn was a downtrodden abyss of college football.. didn't they go undefeated a few years ago? They have tradition and insane support... not exactly "miracle" material. If he had ISU 5-0 this year, perhaps that would warrant the word.

    Unfortunately, John rarely gets to Ames outside of the CU-ISU game which is normally in November and the weather is not the best or in the winter for the basketball games.

    To call Ames disgusting is ridiculous.

    Annapolis is a very cool town. Naval Academy, the former US Capitol, the capitol of Maryland. It's steeped in history.

    But this is a snippet of why I hate CU/Boulder/Denver-what-area-code-is-your-suburb-in-so-I-may-guesstimate-how-big-your-mortgage-is types. I lived there for 10 years, and can only handle the smuggery in doses the size of an ISU away football game. This guy's ego wouldn't fit in to the parking lots north of Jack Trice.

    I'll take some of Iowa's own La Quercia "lunch meat" sandwiches and a Bell's Oberon mini-keg outside the Jack any day over Boulder.
