  • Help in the fight against MS

    It’s often said, “ ‘Tis a pleasure to live in Colorado.” And it is. We have some of the best quality of life of anywhere in the world. But one odd blemish that researchers have yet to fully understand is why we have a higher incidence of multiple sclerosis than most anywhere else.

    Boggs’ statements paint a distorted picture
    Editor:
    Why did I help write and sign the letter/petition to bar Jeffco Board of Education member Laura Boggs from moderating the April 30 Evergreen budget forum?
    I currently chair the Strategic Planning and Advisory Planning Committee, the Jeffco School District’s state-mandated accountability committee. This committee also functions as an advisory committee to the Jeffco school board.

  • Thoughts on a post-party world

    If you think the political atmosphere has become more complicated lately, you’re right. A recent poll by the Pew Research Center found that fewer Americans are willing to call themselves Republicans or Democrats than ever before, leaving our once-binary system in a state of multilateral flux.

  • Beware the spy in your pocket

    Several months ago, I asked in this column, “At what point will we finally have enough surveillance cameras? It’s hard to go anywhere without being watched by at least one, and often several, closed-circuit eyes in the sky.”
    Well, as it turns out, there’s no longer any need to worry about external technology spying on us. Thanks to the intrepid work of two British techies named Alasdair Allan and Pete Warden, we now know that we’re spying on ourselves.

  • Implications of state budget cuts very real

    Before the legislative session even started, we all knew that developing and passing Colorado’s budget for fiscal 2011-12 would be a terrible ordeal. After years of cutting the budget, there would have to be additional cuts of around $1 billion. In addition, term limits had created a Joint Budget Committee with little previous experience (only three years on the committee among its six members), and split control of the legislature meant the committee would be equally divided between Republicans and Democrats.
