  • District needs civility to bloom

    An early giant in the journalism trade was fond of saying that practically every political story boils down to two issues: conflict and cash.
    And while our members of Congress continue to clash over cash, the Jeffco school district is cramming our news columns with conflict, both ideological and, now, physical.
    The months-long controversy over the district’s plan to test the inBloom system for storing student information boiled over last week when shoving broke out between a resident and two district staff members at a school board meeting.

    In the wake of the catastrophic destruction and loss of property and life caused by the floods that ravaged our state earlier this month, many things come to mind.

  • On Syria, I’ll trust the experts

    When Syrian President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons on his country’s citizens, killing more than 1,400 people, including defenseless children, he crossed a line for most Americans. While there is still much consternation over whether a military response is appropriate and, if so, how we limit our exposure and don’t get sucked into another seemingly endless intervention, there seems to be some consensus that the act of gassing innocents in Syria deserves a response.
