Young Professional Whiners column causes a stir

My column in last Friday’s CSBJ seems to have caused some healthy discourse. The CEO of some company that I have never met at the dozens of community functions I attend every month says I should get involved in the community. You think? While the emails are coming in spouting all the good things the… Continue Reading Young Professional Whiners column causes a stir

Bonds pass in Denver, Springs needs money

Comments Off

Denver voters recently passed half a billion dollars worth of bond initiatives, including $70 million to pay for reconstruction of Boettcher Concert hall. So why does Colorado Springs have to moan and groan over even the slightest tax increase? Everyone around here knows that one of the biggest hurdles to getting any tax increase passed… Continue Reading Bonds pass in Denver, Springs needs money

Springs officials in a panic?

Comments Off

The Indianapolis Business Journal reported last week that Colorado Springs officials are “in a panic” over losing USA Basketball – and other Olympic governing bodies – possibly to Indianapolis, because the Indiana Sports Corp. is apparently making a “hard run” at USA Basketball.

Sure, there is probably some historic significance about having him in the line of sight of Pikes Peak, but come on,… Continue Reading Move the General Palmer Statue

Paris Hilton is not news

Comments Off

We have a TV in our office that’s tuned to CNN all day. I recently caught myself yelling at it that “Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan are not news.” I could really care less that the celebrity of the week got a DUI or was going to rehab. Well, it turns out the general public… Continue Reading Paris Hilton is not news

E-mail and me

Comments Off

I get a lot of email. I subscribe to numerous business journals’ daily electronic versions, like the one that you probably just clicked through to read this blog. And, because I’m in the media business, I tend to get a lot of extra e-mail. Everyone wants something, and everyone sends me press releases. A pet… Continue Reading E-mail and me

Call me old fashioned, but I think the City Council should pass an ordinance making it illegal to wear clothes that show undergarments. I’m sure the ACLU will take issue with this, but there are laws against grafitti and other forms of visually disparaging things, and I think the baggy pants thing is a form… Continue Reading Springs caught with pants down?
