Letters | Fossil fuel apologist

I am sure Paul Danish considers himself a global warming/climate change/fossil fuel realist. After all, our modern world is currently completely dependent upon the burning of fossil fuels, and that is not going to change at any time soon.

Letters | Pot is dangerous

In the April 12 edition of the Boulder Weekly, the cover story was entitled, “Nipping 4/20 in the bud.” A week later, the Boulder Weekly published [a letter to the editor] written by Tristan Gulliford.
