Sunny side of the street 

The holidays are over. There are bills to pay, the economy's still heading south, and the deepest, darkest, coldest part of winter lies ahead. All you can do is smile ... um, right?

Pretend you're president for a day. Declare something. Any elderly person that needs nursing home help should be supported in that.

What's our most pressing issue at present? Making sure that every person in America has food, especially children. Getting food stamps to those in need.

If you could sling a shoe at an elected official, who would it be? George Bush. He had no business going into Iraq over weapons that didn't exist.

What talk-radio host would you most enjoy tossing a shoe at? Rush Limbaugh. I hate that man's guts.

Musician, etc.

What edict would you issue if you were president for a day? Free parking for everyone.

On a scale of 1 to 10, rate your interest in the upcoming state legislative session. I'm pretty apathetic and busy with my everyday life. I'd rate myself a 5.

What's the paramount issue for Colorado at present? Utilities, water management, energy issues.

Which elected official would you throw your shoe at? [Dick] Cheney's still in office for a week or two, so it'd be him.

Say something good about this time of the year. The new year gives us a chance to start anew, and I'm hoping for a nice tax return.

If you hosted a talk-radio show for a day, what would you bitch about? I'm too happy a guy to be a talk-radio host.

Project manager

On a scale of 1 to 10, what's your interest in the upcoming state legislative session? Maybe a 2.

You've been made governor for a day. Make a declaration.

No sales taxes today.

If you could toss your shoe at an elected official, who would it be? Nancy Pelosi. Our views of things don't come remotely close.

We're entering the deepest, darkest part of winter. Say something good about it. We have more time to reflect, read, think.

Say you're a talk show host for the day. What will you rant about? How far away we've gotten from the precepts this country was founded on.
