I was flying home to the Springs, so I was in a good mood, but that didn’t last long. The woman who sat next to me yanked out a nail file and launched into a meth-induced flurry of filing that could have reduced the bars of a jail cell to cinders. Nail debris rose like… Continue Reading 2C or not 2C is the question

Six years ago, when I arrived here to take over as publisher of the Colorado Springs Business Journal, longtime residents gave me lots of advice about how people here appreciated gradual change brought about by quiet diplomacy, you know, that old strong, silent Westerner image. I guess I should have announced that I’m not quiet.… Continue Reading Forget the ‘walk softly’ thing

Editor’s note: This column originally was published May 23, 2008. My youngest daughter will be turning two-and-a-half years old in a few weeks, and all because I lost the phone number of the vasectomy doctor. What a lucky loss. I am 46 going on 27 and will be around 62 when my littlest girl takes… Continue Reading Losing a phone number, embracing midlife woes
