The brave Colorado high school students who are protesting their school board's attempt to rewrite their American history curriculum are doing all Americans a favor. They are reminding us of the importance of dissent and protest in our nation's history.

Derek Jeter, and Our Own Mortality

Dan Rather | September 29, 2014 | Sports
What must this past season have been like for a man with still so much life before him, hearing all those eulogies to his youth? "Ballplayer" is the only identity Jeter has ever known, and now, at an age when many are only getting started, he will have to redefine his life.

Colorado Students Are Right: Your History Is Un-American

Jason Endacott | September 29, 2014 | Education
I've been paying close attention to the events in Colorado in which students and faculty members of Jefferson County high schools have been protesting the formation of a curriculum review committee that would require students to learn a sanitized version of history that encourages blind patriotism and discourages any sort of protest.

'Don't Know Much about History': Is Denver the Start of a New Student Movement?

Yohuru Williams | September 25, 2014 | Education
The protest to preserve the history curriculum is important for many reasons. If the so-called education reformers are not careful, they may bring on that catastrophe by toppling the only remaining institution dedicated to reinforcing civic values -- public education.

Beauprez Feels Your Fear of U.S. Government Attack on You

Jason Salzman | September 25, 2014 | Denver
Beauprez has shown a "tendency in recent years to voice support for the fringe issue du jour on the right, whether it's northern Colorado secession or repeal of the 17th Amendment permitting the direct election of senators." I just found yet another instance of Beauprez voicing "support for the fringe issue du jour on the right."

A Year After the Flood, Estes Park Is Back

Susan Kraus | September 25, 2014 | Travel
When I saw the news coverage last year of the flood, I felt a sinking feeling, and a longing. Even though it had been years since I'd been to Estes Park, it was always on my "Let's go back" list, always an option.

Gary Hart and Richard Nixon, Pt. 1

Ken Toltz | September 25, 2014 | Politics
As a 1974 high school junior, I couldn't envision that a day would come 10 years later where I would join Hart's initial 1984 insurgent presidential campaign challenging establishment candidate VP Walter Mondale.

Business Tips from The Beatles

Brett Greene | September 25, 2014 | Denver
All businesses, like bands, are made up of a collective of individuals. Though some may contribute in larger ways than others, no one person is responsible for the company's success. It's important to share accolades.

Is This Behavior Killing Your Friendships?

Ann Brenoff | September 25, 2014 | Fifty
Last week, I had one of those absolutely awful days. In Internet-speak, it was a 'Worst. Day. Ever.' I'll spare you the details, but suffice to say when I got home, I did something unusual: I phoned a friend.

CEOs Get Paid Too Much, According to Pretty Much Everyone in the World

Gretchen Gavett | September 29, 2014 | Business
It turns out that most people, regardless of nationality or set of beliefs, share similar sentiments about how much CEOs should be paid -- and, for the most part, these estimates are markedly lower than the amounts company leaders actually earn.

Vanessa Berben | September 24, 2014 | Entertainment
I can't speak for everyone at tvtag, but I'm personally still coming to grips with the loss of my favorite non-Liar, Mona Vanderwaal. But at least I've got a partner-in-grief in Jaymie Bailey, founder of All Things PLL. This week, Jaymie and I discuss the death of one of our favorites and look ahead at what's to come on Pretty Little Liars.

How Well Is Coffman Representing His District?

Seth Masket | September 23, 2014 | Politics
Mike Coffman is right on the Republican trend line. That is, he represents his district the same way Republicans do everywhere. Yes, he's somewhat conservative for his district, but no more so than other Republicans tend to be.

How Should Our Society Deal With People Who Use Drugs?

Tony Newman | September 23, 2014 | Politics
The war on drugs is a cruel joke. The U.S. spends more than $50 billion a year on the "war on drugs" with the goal of creating a "drug-free society" -- yet there has never been a "drug-free society" in the history of civilization.
