  • Winners and losers
  • Living life to the fullest in Colorado

    Saturday marked a milestone, of sort, for yours truly. The day — Feb. 3 — made it 10 years since I moved to Colorado. Pulling up to my in-laws’ house with my wife and youngest children awaiting me, my oldest son and the family dog as we hopped out of the U-Haul, completing our 1,700-mile, two-day trip just in time to watch — imagine this — the New England Patriots playing in a Super Bowl.

    Needing support for the MBTA
    Evergreen Audubon has just launched the Year of the Bird for 2018. We celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 1918 Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

  • Transforming the bully pulpit

    For a full year now, I’ve been taking notes. Almost every day. Notes about the Trump presidency.
    It wasn’t easy because before one story could play itself, out another replaced it. My notes became encyclopedically long. There’s a popular theory going around: Trump keeps up this pace so we can’t get preoccupied with one bit of beastly behavior or any single atrocious act. It fast becomes yesterday’s news.
