Colorado State Rep. JoAnn Windholz, who called Planned Parenthood the "real culprit" in last year's clinic massacre in Colorado Springs, took to Facebook yesterday to condemn the Supreme Court's decision affirming a women's right to choose. "The liberal leaning US Supreme Court once again protected the made up right of...
The proposed Colorado Community Rights Amendment is a response to decades-long efforts to suppress local government.
I hope that the next time you visit, email, or call a Latino family, you have a better speech prepared. "White" people are not the only people that deserve housing, and Latinos are not at the very least deserving of your unsolicited dry speech.
Out on the town I'm always asked a few questions about real estate, mostly "How's the market?" It's the follow-up question where it really gets interesting. The last seven years have seen a surge in the metro Denver real estate market as record numbers of buyers look for...
A huge frustration of Personhood USA folks is the familiar pattern of Colorado Republicans building their political careers and winning primary elections with the help of hard-working anti-choice activists and then buckpedaling away from the "pro-life" loyalists once they face the frowns of general-election voters. See, for example, Sen....
Journalists take a lot of hits these days, but we're all glad they're out there asking questions.
When an elected official, even one like Woods who likes Trump, compares police officers to Crips and Bloods, even under specific circumstances, it shouldn't fly under the media radar, like this May 26 statement of Woods did.

"Is Ms. Sorenson "a racist?" I don't know her but I tend to doubt it. But can a person who is not a racist be guilty of saying or doing something racially insensitive or offensive? Absolutely."
I have no idea what will happen between Sophia and Crystal in the coming seasons. Playing her has been one of the great highlights of my lucky career as an actor. I've learned more from Crystal than just about any character I've ever played. And for that, I am eternally grateful.
Given a microphone and a stage, you just might be able to change the world -- or your city, your community, or maybe just another person's mind. That's the idea behind Ignite Denver, the triannual community event that provides a public...
Beth McCann was the first legislator I worked with who actually started slaying this dragon. As a freshman, she proposed reducing a small basket of sentences and got her bill passed. The budget folks calculated how much this would save in future prison costs.
Judy Rydberg Reyher,
Otero County Republican chair Judy Rydberg Reyher says there's no intended racism in her Facebook posts that appear to make sweeping unfavorable comments about African Americans, including, among other things, that African Americans are "hatred-filled beings"...
Good journalism frequently starts with a good question. In this case it is this: Why is big bad personal injury attorney Azar spending 50K to back Carrigan? What is he hoping to get out of Denver's next district attorney? And has Carrigan promised him anything?
This blog will explore the essential role that risk taking plays in athletic success. Before I continue, though, let me preface this discussion by saying that, when I talk about taking risks, I don't mean taking stupid risks such as texting while driving,...
This past Saturday June 11, 2016 there was a meeting of Bernie Supporters at the "Bravehearts for Bernie: a Brews for Bernie event" at Caution Brewing in Colorado. The talk among the people there was not one of defeat or sadness, but were more about the...
Colorado State Sen. Laura Woods suggested in a radio interview last month that state Republicans wanted Gov. John Hickenlooper to cut health-care for children, elderly, the disabled, and other poor people in exchange for the allowing the state to spend $370 million in TABOR rebates on roads, schools, and...
I admit it -- I have an Amazon account. I may love to shop local, but nothing is ever all black or all white, is it? I recognize that sometimes I'm just not going to find what I'm looking for at the local independent shops. And sometimes it's just easier to have it delivered. And, that's okay. I still consider myself a "localist" because I believe in the value of shopping locally, and do so as often as I can.
I fear that in the days and weeks to come, the American public will indulge in the same old insinuations, recriminations and evasions. We can't afford to do that.
After the Paris shooting last year, former GOP Congressman Tom Tancredo posted a Facebook image with the words "Celebrating Diversity...one massacre at a time...Coming soon to a concert hall near you." Tancredo posted the meme below on Facebook late last night. It's similar, with the same "Celebrating...
Conservative operative Laura Carno is out with a new book with the ridiculous title of, "Government Ruins Nearly Everything." But the subtitle should keep you from burning the book: "Reclaiming Social Issues from Uncivil Servants." If you ignore the "uncivil" part, you can look inside the 138-page volume...
