The battle for journalism in Colorado (and the Denver Post)

When I first moved to Colorado I used to read the Denver Post, but for at least the last year I’ve read constant stories about reporting staff being gutted down to a bare-bones skeleton crew. These days I don’t even bother looking at it, which is a shame, because honest journalism is important in a free society.

Today the battle for journalism in Colorado continues, as employees of the Denver Post signed a letter about one of their colleagues being censored in the midst of what appears to be significant profit-taking by the newspaper ownership. (I saw “appears” because there is no mention of profit margins; every for-profit business must have a profit margin to stay in business.)

Update: If you’re interested in this sage, I recommend reading, They’ve Killed a Great Newspaper on westword.com.

A favorite view of Boulder, Colorado and the Rocky Mountains alvin April 28, 2018 - 11:24am

I don’t take too many photos of traffic intersections, but this is a favorite view of Boulder, Colorado and the Rocky Mountains. In this image I am on South Boulder Road, with the city of Boulder directly ahead.

Overnight snow

I had to go to a physical therapy appointment early this morning in Louisville, Colorado, and one benefit of getting up early were some beautiful views of the overnight snow, clouds on one side of the sky, and sunshine on the other.
