Solving a problem Kevin Costner style
I’m a firm believer in conservation. However, I’m also a capitalist. I have always had disdain for the folks who carry on about “globalwarmingcoolingclimatechange” and then brag about driving their ’68 Volkswagon Bus cross-country, or those that fly privately to far off countries to complain about various climate issues. You know the ones. The “Enviro-scolds.”…
A thought about the Super Bowl ads and the poor treatment of women
Some people are upset about this ad because of the violence against women. O.K. I get it. I wasn’t offended by it, but, well, I suppose some people could be. But for all those who were offended by the violence of the “Tebow” ad, I have a question. Shouldn’t you mention this ad too? Or…
Venezuela, a non-expert analysis
I just got back from Venezuela and had to make a few observations about how things are there. First, I love Venezuela, but it definitely has some problems. And it all stems from one person. El Presidente, Hugo Chavez. When you´re in Venezuela, it´s hard not to hear from, or about Chavez and his talking…
A thought about the Olympics pick
I found it pretty amazing that no South American country has ever hosted an Olympics and I think it’s about time that they got one. Congratulations to Rio and Brazil!!!! And thank goodness ol’ Chavez didn’t get them. Could you just imagine?
When racism isn’t
Just saw the transcript of the Gates 911 call and it seems pretty tame. In fact, I think the thing that struck me most was a concerted lack of labeling Gates and his chauffeur as any type of race. It won’t matter though as most everyone has already made up their minds about this regardless…
Better to ask forgiveness than permission
It is a motto in journalism that it’s always better to ask for forgiveness than permission because the only way you can find out what you can get away with is to really see how much you can get away with before you get push back. You’d be surprised how much you can do without…
about my new job, except that I’m an advocate for bloggers. I’m really an advocate for the Colorado Senate Republican Caucus, but I think a strong relationship with bloggers is a good thing. If you want to know more about the Colorado Senate Republican Caucus. Colorado Senate News should be a daily read.
A tough choice
What to do for tonight’s festivities. I can… A) Go watch Al Jazeera interview a bunch of folk in Golden. B) Go to the third night of Slang TV’s Slang Lounge. C) Go to the RMBB 5000. I wonder which one I’ll attend?
What to do in Denver when your…..
not a part of the “festivities.” Well, for me this is a bit of a dilemma. I am only about six blocks from the capital and it would be no problem for me to go down there and grab a few choice shots of the protests. I’m also very close to the Governor’s Mansion so…
Denver better be ready….
Because these folks are animals It could get ugly….and that’s just the way we like it. Why else would 20,000 journalists come to town this week?
