Her music was characterized not only by her high, lonesome singing style, but also by her provocative pro-union, feminist songs.]]> <![CDATA[In case you missed it]]> <![CDATA[in case you missed it l ACADEMIC B.S.?]]> On the same day we found out that fired professor Ward Churchill had his appeal heard by the state Supreme Court, we learned that a Republican regent candidate committed academic misconduct that was at least as bad as anything old Ward ever did, if not moreso.]]> <![CDATA[In case you missed it | Inside baseball, revisited]]> We took great interest in the fact that Boulder City Council member KC Becker was chosen to succeed Claire Levy as state representative to House District 13.]]> <![CDATA[In case you missed it | Message from God]]> It’s like the 10 plagues were descending on the site of the Republican National Convention in Florida.]]> <![CDATA[In case you missed it | Priorities, people]]> But we’re rather more concerned about the effects of this most recent cold spell on Boulder’s homeless population, which we’re betting that many attending the elk’s candlelight vigil don’t like to think about.]]> <![CDATA[In case you missed it | POT AND DRONES]]> What we found was that there were many opportunities for a community like Deer Trail to take advantage of drone-shooting, and we secretly hoped that Boulder’s bid for a testing site would afford us the chance of taking aim at low-flying, constitutionally questionable surveillance devices.]]> <![CDATA[In case you missed it | And the winner is … Elise Jones]]> To be honest, we were afraid that the debate might turn out to be more of a conversation among friends who just sort of disagree on a few things. We were worried for no reason. Elise Jones kicked the governor’s butt.]]> <![CDATA[in case you missed it | Life is as cheap as a tweet]]> <![CDATA[in case you missed it | Affordable contraception for all]]> <![CDATA[In case you missed it | A printed conviction]]> <![CDATA[in case you missed it | What collateral damage looks like]]> <![CDATA[In case you missed it I City of Boulder numerically challenged ... again]]> It was another one of those moments that scare the heck out of taxpayers. You know the kind, like the city can’t find $9,000 to put in a groundwater monitoring well below the Valmont dike dam to protect public health, but they can happily keep finding millions of dollars for the cost overruns occurring on the other side of the dam where all the waste is buried.]]> <![CDATA[In case you missed it | Dumbed down]]> We’re trying not to be offended that Boulder City Council thinks we’re so dumb that we’ll only know which municipalization measure to vote for by its placement on the ballot.]]> <![CDATA[in case you missed it | Konfused Kevin]]> Sen. Kevin Lundberg of Berthoud, like a lot of Republicans these days, wants to have it both ways. Very little government, unless big government suits their needs.]]> <![CDATA[In case you missed it | Old Glory, in hemp]]> If there weren’t already enough reasons to support U.S. Rep. Jared Polis, this is a slam-dunk justification to vote for him in any future political endeavor he pursues.]]> <![CDATA[In case you missed it]]> If you’re an expert science journo, you just might appear on Fox News’ Fox & Friends to opine about all things futuristic, like Google’s robot cars, gene therapy and how we’ll all be traveling in spaceships one day. Just don’t bring up climate change. That’s what Michael Moyer, an editor for Scientific American, learned last week. Asked what tops his crystal-ball-gazing list beforehand, he told a show producer “climate change.” That’s apparently not a good subject in Foxland.]]> <![CDATA[In case you missed it | Visit lovely NoColor!]]> First of all, North Colorado, or, as we’ll subsequently refer to it, NoColor, should tout its extremely low property values, which continue to fall thanks to all of the oil and gas wells in residents’ backyards. But hey, industrial operations should feel right at home.]]> <![CDATA[In case you missed it | Valmont project lingers]]> We found out last week from city of Boulder officials that the ongoing cleanup at Valmont Butte that BW devoted a 10-part series and 38,000 words to last year has been delayed — again.]]> <![CDATA[in case you missed it | Blame God]]>
