On Sunday, Denver Public Schools board member Tay Anderson finally made the “special announcement” he’d been promising on Twitter since Feb. 18. Contrary to mountains of speculation he might run for higher office, the big news was personal. The 22-year-old proudly proclaimed that he will be a father. Baby Khalil’s due date is May 13. […]

At CPAC on Sunday, former President Donald Trump again declared, “This election was rigged.” Guess what? He’s right. In fact, almost every election is rigged — in favor of Republican and Democratic candidates. That’s because of our two-party system, a steady feature of the American republic since 1860 that isn’t going anywhere. It was recently […]

“At 10:43 P.M. on August 24, 2019, 23-year-old Elijah McClain was approached by Aurora Police officers and told to stop while he was walking home in northwest Aurora…At 11:01 P.M., eighteen minutes after he was first told to stop, Mr. McClain was lifted, unconscious, onto a gurney and then transported to the hospital. He never […]

To quote Snoke in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, “There has been an awakening.  Have you felt it?” Whether we’re talking about PreK-12 schooling or higher ed, things are changing.  Parents and students are starting to realize the raw deal they’ve been getting with the current education systems.  It’s showing up in enrollment data — and […]

The year was 2003, the summer between my seventh- and eighth-grade years at Falcon Creek Middle School. We were on our annual vacation visiting family back home in Upstate New York, and my Grandpa Walt took me on a golf outing. On the way back to his house, a very curious thing happened. Grandpa turned […]

It was Dec. 6, 1983.  Blues/rock guitar god Stevie Ray Vaughan, then just 29 and not yet a blip on the music radar screen, was set to join blues legend Albert King, then twice his age, for a televised jam session in Hamilton Ontario, Canada.  The performance was recorded live for a TV show called In […]

The song erupted clear across the golf course. A golfer recoiled in anger. “The man’s a menace!” he shouted. “Cut that off!” His frustration, mixed with a sneering attitude, was palpable. “Music is a violation of my personal privacy. He’s breaking the law!” Sadly, decades-old jokes from a cult classic (of course, I’m talking about […]

Last Thursday, a group of U.S. senators, led by Sens. Chuck Schumer (NY) and Elizabeth Warren (MA), put forward a resolution calling on President Biden to unilaterally “cancel” $50,000 in federal student loan debt.  All are Democrats, yet thankfully not a single one was from Colorado.  It should stay that way. At over $1.7 trillion, […]

Exactly 20 years and one month ago today, we moved to Colorado for my dad’s work. I was a 10-year-old fifth-grader coming to a new state and a new school, yet one thing didn’t change: The existence of standardized tests. Back at the dawn of the century, though, standardized testing was not as big as […]

I have been plugged into Colorado Republican Party politics since the ripe old age of 13.  My first experience was attending the Arapahoe County Republican Men’s Club breakfasts.  A few months later, I was making phone calls on behalf of George W. Bush’s reelection campaign. Over about 17 years — whether just an activist, leader […]
