  • Colorado primary a huge change for voters

    Your ballot for what is by almost any measure the most interesting primary election in Colorado history should have arrived in the mail recently.

  • Parsing the silly season

    It is not bad enough that 70 percent of us are afflicted with “news fatigue,” but now we are solidly enmeshed in and totally bored with the “silly” season of politics fondly known as the primaries.

    While having a role in our election process, many would agree with me that things have gotten a bit out of hand. Certainly, the projection of campaign costs approaching $25 million should be a source of some concern.

    Given the daily challenges we all have to deal with, it is easy for us to overlook some of the important events that have contributed mightily to our current status. As with any historical relevance, a key component is not so much the factual occurrence, but rather the emotional connection.

  • Clowns to the left and jokers to the right

    My favorite news source is Michael Smerconish, who has a weekday three-hour news and political discussion show, on Satellite radio station POTUS. His tag line is the title of this article.
    He appeals to me because of his fairmindedness. He is a true centrist, and in the three or four years I have been an avid listener, I have not seen one instance of biased discussion of an issue.
