in case you missed it | Romney trainwreck

We may have elected our first black president, but it wasn’t very long ago that we were committing unspeakable acts of racism. Just this week, a state-appointed task force in North Carolina recommended that every living person who was sterilized against their will as part of the state-run eugenics program should be financially compensated for their pain and suffering.

The Boulder Homeless Shelter’s Housing First program taps into federal dollars to provide housing to the chronically homeless. The idea is that by getting transients off the street, you give them the stability they need to drag themselves out of their ruts and better their lives. In theory, it’s an easy idea to support, but one of the problems officials run into is finding landlords who are willing to take tenants with such checkered pasts and unstable futures.

in case you missed it | Safety whizzin’

in case you missed it | Racial pissing match

There’s a political war raging over Colorado’s 6th Congressional District. What makes this battle interesting isn’t the warring factions of Democrats and Republicans (snooze), but rather their weapon of choice, Hispanic people. No kidding.
