When I fired up the old computer Friday morning, I could feel the blood begin to drain almost immediately from my face. As I moved from one local news site to the next — starting with The Sun, of course — the same story appeared almost everywhere.

This Valentine’s Day, as many of us were snuggled up indoors, an Arctic blast swept down through the nation. In Texas, millions went for days without power because of energy shortages, all while one of the state’s senators, Ted Cruz, was headed to enjoy a well-deserved vacation in sunny Canc…

While few people enjoy piling on Ted Cruz as much as I do, I have to admit that Cruz’s trip to Mexico during the Texas energy crisis is, as he said himself, a distraction from the real problem — which is that Texas, of all places, ran out of gas, or at least its ability to deliver gas.

After last week’s winter weather catastrophe in Texas, we can imagine Jerry Jones sitting in a highrise somewhere looking just like the cat that ate the canary. Coloradans likely know him as the billionaire owner of the Dallas Cowboys, but he also controls Comstock Resources, a natural gas o…

On Day Five, the final day of the Trump impeachment trial, the United States Senate voted to let Donald Trump off the hook for what is likely the most dangerous and disgraceful set of actions by any president since the nation’s founding.

It doesn’t take a time-traveling DeLorean to learn some important economic lessons from the past. One of the greatest to come out of the last two decades is that recovering from economic disaster shouldn’t, but almost certainly will, fall victim to politics.

 Yes, this is the question of the day for Doug’s CO-3 constituents.  Besides his voting in lock-step to overturn a legal, fraud less election results and insurrection; supporting a riot to take over the OUR Capitol by armed treasonous militia; supporting a deceitful, dishonest, untruthful, c…

Under the heading about Republican, you include reference to an attempted takeover of the Capitol. Are you sure that term is adequate? Was it a takeover or was it vandalism? Evaluate, if you please. Have you actually gone out and performed an in depth examination of the party affiliation of …

….and now we know he rest of the story…. …as the late Paul Harvey used to say at end of his radio broadcast…  Indeed, we now know the rest of the story - perhaps not the whole story - but enough to know the real political beliefs, views and dogmas of former Senator Cory Gardner and how easy …

As a child I struggled with the disparity between religion and superstition in my country of origin, Bolivia. Once enculturated in this country, whenever I returned to my roots, every 5 years or so, for a short visit, I kept hoping that things had changed in that respect; unfortunately they …

You can’t begin to overstate what just happened in Washington, the place where good ideas go to die, if, in fact, anyone even notices them at all.

It’s almost like the universe, appalled by our inattention, used COVID, George Floyd, the broken economy and Trump’s post-election lie-fest, right up to the Capitol insurrection of Jan. 6, to make us stop. To make us see how polarized and lost America has become and force us to re-examine th…

For all of Rep. Lauren Boebert’s attention-grabbing antics in her first days in Congress, it looks as if she is still having to play catch-up if her ambition is to be the leading U.S. House crazy. It must be driving her nuts.

In a world that’s clogged and choking with a massive overdose of plastic trash, you’ll be heartened to learn that governments and industries are teaming up to respond forcefully to this planetary crisis.

As Jan. 6 dawned and a truly alarming number of congressional Republicans were poised to vote against certification of the presidential election, Judd Legum’s online politics newsletter Popular Information published a connect-the-dots kind of article. In “20 corporations, $16 million, and 13…

This time last month, most of us were anticipating the move from 2020 to 2021. For obvious reasons (COVID-19 and its economic consequences, the expression of white supremacy, the murder of George Floyd, just to name a few) we hoped the new year would bring with it a magical restart.

Now that all the beautiful speeches about unifying a country in disunion are over and done, we should note that the clock on President Joe Biden’s honeymoon period is already ticking. In fact, that sound you hear might be the alarm going off.

Our city’s relationship with the LGBTQ community has been tumultuous at best. We went from having the largest queer space in the Western states, Hide and Seek, to being labeled the nexus of the “hate state” with the passage of Amendment 2; from being the first city in Colorado to implement p…

If you’re wondering why the Senate must hold an impeachment trial of Donald Trump even after he’s no longer president, even if it’s unlikely that the required 17 or so Republicans will ever vote to convict, even if the trial would impede Joe Biden’s first days in office, you don’t have to lo…
