    I’ve had several requests for an update on Gary, the dog that adopted us thanks to the puppy-dog eyes of my Ninja-like manipulative children – “Daddy, I’d rather cuddle a dog than a boy.” I can report one minor victory in the war of the generations. The teenage daughter has, under threat of dog expulsion,

But what if it African-Americans move out? Well, that would just be called Boulder. As my colleague Randal O’Toole pointed out this month, U.S. Census data shows

    As with the Harvey Weinstein situation, could it be that politics causes a double standard on acceptance of sexual harassment?

    A quick refresher for those who have a life, and don’t follow how special interests run the legislature: The first big deception leading to this special session was how the legislature expanded Medicaid, putting nearly one out of every four Coloradans on welfare without any permanent way to fund it.
