  • Front-runners, step to the rear

    Chris Romer joined a fairly exclusive club last week. Along with Dale Tooley, Norm Early and Ari Zavaras, he’s now one of the can’t-miss front-runners for Denver mayor who fell to lesser-known opponents each of the last four times the office was truly up for grabs.

    Death of bin Laden provides opportunity for our nation
    Editor:

  • Did freedom or government come first?

    I recently overheard a conversation that went something like this: “Where does the right to free speech come from?” “The right to free speech,” came the reply, “was given to us by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.”

    Eliminating Medicare would be immoral
    Editor:
    Many Colorado families are working paycheck to paycheck, if they’re lucky enough to be working. It is a day-to-day struggle just to make ends meet. There are many who have approached and exceeded what once was thought of as “retirement age” and continue working because of all the cuts that are now being called “excessive entitlements.”
