    Get In The Damn Boat!

    Politics aside, I can’t imagine any more satisfying end to Trump than to be soundly thrashed by a woman – a woman of color no less. In a rare explosion of Democratic Party sanity, Biden’s withdrawal glided smoothly into what I predict will be a Kamala Harris juggernaut. Harris is dynamic, wicked smart, confident and prepared. Her VP pick – I predict Mark Kelly – will further strengthen the ticket. (I do think J.B. Pritzker would be great, just for a J.B./J.D. VP showdown.) The naysayers are annoying. It is like watching snooty shipwreck victims refusing to get in the

    This IS Who We Are

    “This is not who we are!” – President Joe Biden and several million others in response to the assassination attempt. As is the case in mass shooting after mass shooting, all the attention is diverted from the real issue of gun violence in America. Perhaps most absurd among the absurdities are the pleas to ratchet down the rhetoric. Not that ratcheting down is a bad thing, but the ease with which Democrats swallow the false equivalence is startling. The rhetoric to which MAGATs refer are comments about threats to democracy and the rise of authoritarianism. That’s accurate reporting, not inflammatory

  • Why Not?

    Why Not?

    Well, the Biden press conference performance last week was better than the debate. Faint praise indeed. “Vice President Trump” was gaffe grande and Biden seemed to not notice. He did, slowly, recognize that he referred to someone else as Commander in Chief. Some Pollyannas in the punditry gave high marks to his command of foreign policy. I found his rambling digressions unbearable, but he did understand some questions. I fail to grasp how any objective person found his performance reassuring.

    A Conversation with Daniel Maté

    YS talks about Gaza, the upcoming election, music, and childhood trauma in a wide-ranging interview Being in local, independent journalism is not an easy feat these days. My days are filled with more work than play, but at least the work is of great value to me. While I read enormous amounts of news, white papers, and media articles and absorb documentaries for my Friday night escape, the time to sit down and read a book was stolen years back. Despite my lack of carving out time to read a good book, I have been a fan of the Maté

    ‘The Right Thing To Do’ Tells Story of Role ‘61 CU Boulder Team Played in Integrating College Football

    Tom Shanahan’s book tells a previously neglected story, bringing to light true champions of football integration In the midst of their locker-room celebration of Iowa State in the 1961 College Football Playoffs, the University of Colorado Boulder Buff’s chose to take a stand. “We didn’t care if we stayed in Miami Beach, but wherever we stayed, we were staying together and eating together as a team, or we weren’t going at all,” said Joe Romig, 1961 University of Colorado Boulder football team captain. (Shanahan, 2024, pp.77). They explained to head coach, Sonny Grandelious, and Orange Bowl officials that they would
