Corporate weasels trying to escape paying for workers’ injuries

By Jim Hightower
When you come across a corporate lobbying group claiming to be pushing “Responsible Alternatives to Such-and-Such,” you can rightly assume that it’s really pushing something totally irresponsible, as well as malicious, self-serving and even disgusting.

Some folks look for answers

Grateful Dead announce two additional “Fare Thee Well” shows

By Stewart Sallo
When promoter Peter Shapiro became aware of the article I wrote last month, “Ladies and Gentlemen, Not the Grateful Dead,” taking him to task for the way ticket sales were handled for the Grateful Dead’s “Fare Thee Well” shows, scheduled for July 3-5 at Chicago’s Soldier Field, he had two choices: 1. Write it off as the “butthurt whining” of someone who didn’t get tickets (which, just for the record, was not true), or 2. Defend the manner in which ticket sales were conducted, the choice of venue and the way in which these factors served to stimulate the secondary market, causing ticket prices to soar into the thousands.

One author’s cannabis journey of discovery

By Leland Rucker
When Bruce Barcott began to research a book about the legalization of marijuana in the United States, one of the first things that concerned him was how he was going to talk with his children about it. An author and science writer whose work appears in The New York Times and Atlantic Monthly, Barcott, like many Americans, was a novice about cannabis, apathetic until he had to vote for or against legalization in Washington in 2012, his knowledge limited mostly to its longtime status as a drug promoted as being more dangerous than cocaine or methamphetamine by the federal government.

I’m a straight male kinkster who used to do live performances as a rope bondage top, but I recently jumped out of the kink community. I just think I’ll have better luck finding a long-term relationship with a girl from the vanilla world. So long as she’s GGG, I can live with it.

According to my reading of the astrological omens, your “engine” is unusually strong right now, which means that your cultivated skills and innate talents are functioning at peak levels. I suggest you make intensive use of them to produce maximum amounts of energy and gather more of the clout you’d love to wield.

Go big or go home

The new Avery Brewery impresses in size and style

By Hudson Lindenberger
Like a proud father Adam Avery would be justified in bragging about his new brewery. After 22 years bumping into walls and struggling to brew enough beer to keep up with the public’s unquenchable thirst for his signature products, the opening of his new state-ofthe-art brewery calls for.

A street smart chicken

Why one breed rises above the rest for backyard coops

By Ari LeVaux
There are many ways that a hen can die. If you raise them long enough, you’ll see your share. I’ve been keeping hens since before it was even legal in my hometown, since before anyone in Brooklyn or Portland had even heard of a chicken. Along the way, in both the city and the country, I’ve seen hens meet all manner of early demise.

That’ll work

Good bar grub, better with beer, at Pumphouse

By Matt Cortina
This food was made for beer. So it’s a good thing the beer at Pumphouse Brewery in Longmont is both tasty and plentiful. Otherwise who knows if this bustling restaurant, with an attached bar called Red Zone, would be so bustling. That is to say, most diners in touch with reality and their own pretention, give a pass to fast casual bar and grills on the quality of the meals that accompany the beer, so long as the food is fresh and filling.
