Re: “UPDATE: Weinstein makes new demand of the Air Force Academy

The Supreme Court has noted on numerous occasions that [1]“government policies of accommodation, acknowledgment, and support for religion are an accepted part of our political and cultural heritage.” The Court has stated that when the state…[2] cooperates with religious authorities by adjusting the schedule of public events to sectarian needs, it follows the best of our traditions…. To hold that it may not would be to find in the Constitution a requirement that the government show a callous indifference to religious groups.”

But then the opinion of the Supreme Court may not be something that generates a want to discuss.

[1]Allegheny County v. ACLU, 492 U.S. 573, 657 (1989).

[2]Zorach v. Clauson, 343 U.S. 306, 313–14 (1952).

Re: “Testing compromise passes, Maketa-related payouts considered, more

Testing deal reached? So what does prohibit assigning an accreditation rating (based on test scores) to school districts actually mean? Are districts not going to be evaluated at all this year?

Re: “TABOR rears its ugly head

"gray tsunami is sweeping across the country, and Colorado will not be spared."

Apparently I am part of this gray tsunami. Please would you refer to those many gray tsunami folks who learned from our parents, sacrificed luxury items saving for our kids futures, stopped smoking and drinking, saved for our retirement, and took it upon ourselves to realize we are individually responsible for ourselves.

Perhaps being dependent on the Government for our daily bread was a risk our parents learned about in the Great Depression. Making use of the fabled Under The Mattress bank wasn't such a bad idea after all?
