  • I’ll always be a Tim Tebow fan

    Yes, I understand. Peyton Manning is a four-time MVP, a Super Bowl winner, and a sure-fire first-ballot Hall of Famer. He commands a game like nobody else. Even when he’s just at 75 percent, he’s still better than everybody else. And by all accounts, he’s an even better man off the field than on it. It’s great to have him in Denver.

    Every election cycle, candidates come along with slick new ideas for reforming government. But one of the best ideas has been around for centuries: “Govern a great nation,” wrote the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu, “as you would cook a small fish — do not overdo it.”

  • Good citizens embrace their freedoms

    Editor’s note: Columnist Greg Romberg’s space this week is being taken by his daughter Rebekah Romberg.
