    Aquarium not fair to animals
    Editor:
    Southwest Plaza will soon become home to more than 1,000 animals in SeaQuest Aquarium’s latest venture into animal exploitation. And that’s not a good thing.
    No matter how big their enclosures, no matter how many pretty pictures they paint on the walls, and no matter how many tree branches they offer, it in no way compares to the habitat that these animals were meant to be in.
    And despite what they will have us believe, animals are still taken from the wild.

  • Taking the next steps on school safety

    Dr. Jason Glass, Jeffco superintendent

    On March 14, thousands of Jeffco students participated in a national school walkout effort related to the tragic incident at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. As this protest also involved a political perspective associated with the gun-control issue, Jeffco Public Schools didn’t take a position or formally endorse the walkouts.

  • Realpolitik equals Fair Trade equals a new NAFTA

    Soon after the inauguration of President Trump, I wrote a column predicting that the tone and timber of his foreign policy would be that of Realpolitik. Certainly, the months since and the latest tariff pronouncement underscore the validity of this prognostication.

  • Shielded from their transgressions

    When the Colorado House of Representatives voted to expel Steve Lebsock, it ended a sorry saga, but did little to put to rest lingering discussions about sexual harassment at the State Capitol.
    After Lebsock was accused of sexual harassment by a fellow lawmaker, several other complaints against legislators were filed. Four additional complaints were filed against Lebsock and complaints were filed against one other representative and three senators.
