In case you missed it | Pat Roberston sees the light

Calm down, calm down. Not that light. For the first time in, well, his life, Pat Robertson spoke with amazing rational clarity when he endorsed the legalization of marijuana earlier this month.

In case you missed it l Council backs train to nowhere

A little background. RTD accidently spent all the money we gave them to connect Longmont, Boulder and Lafayette to Denver’s light rail system by train on something else. They promised us a train when we passed a special tax to pay for said train in 2004.

In case you missed it | HOW’S THAT PIE?

After all, “pink slime,” as it is now called, is a collection of beef byproducts formerly used only in pet foods. Now they are heating it and then spinning it to separate the textured salvage product from the partially liquefied fat. Then they sell us what’s left over as meat.

Douglas Bruce in jail? Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. Bruce is the infamous Colorado Springs anti-tax crusader who brought us the 1992 Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights, or TABOR, which has been blamed for strangling the state’s budget for years — even inhibiting Colorado’s ability to rebound from the recession.

In case you missed it | Justice for campers

So, let’s get this straight. The City of Boulder passes an idiotic law against camping within city limits to keep undesirables like homeless people from sleeping under any kind of shelter, including a tarp that might protect them from the elements.

in case you missed it | Super Bowl Siberia

Take heart, Broncos fans. We may not be playing in the Super Bowl, but at least we don’t have to fork out thousands of dollars for the privilege of hanging out in Indianapolis for a few days. It only seems fitting that all those wealthy East Coast fans who are paying as much as $10,000 per ticket are headed to a place where the most exciting pastime is a temporary zip line designed to fly SB attendees through the heart of this nightlifeless cow-town some 50 feet above the entertainment desert below where no club or modern drinking and eating establishment has ever taken root.
