    Peace Train: Recalling the Vietnam War teach-in
    04/02/2015 04:49 PM MDT - I have just returned from Ann Arbor, Mich., where we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the 1965 anti-Vietnam War teach-in.

    Fantz: Off with their heads
    03/30/2015 02:39 PM MDT - The length we travel to avoid fear is often by way of irrational distress. My phobia, which has resulted in therapy and numerous panic attacks, seems foolish. It's taxidermy. This ancient art of killing an innocent animal for sport, then stuffing and mounting its head on the wall as a trophy knocks the wind straight out of me. (Greek origins translates it to the arrangement of skin. Sweet fancy Moses that's gross.) Full Story

    Peace Train: The demonization of Putin
    03/13/2015 02:06 AM MDT - When the United States prepares to attack a country, it frequently demonizes that nation's leader. The demonization of Vladimir Putin in the U.S. mass media has continued for at least eight years and, in recent months, has reached a veritable frenzy. Meanwhile, in violation of the recent Minsk cease fire agreement, hundreds of U.S. troops have moved into Ukraine to support the Kiev regime's war against eastern province rebels. NATO has also dispatched thousands of soldiers to the Baltic states on Russia's border, and many U.S. political and military leaders advocate lavish arming of the Kiev government. Full Story

    Fritz column: Thank you
    03/02/2015 01:28 PM MST - Two weeks ago, my column won first place at the Colorado Press Association Awards for humorous writing. I've been told to address that here, so I'm sharing a speech I gave the other night; I don't know how else to approach this without feeling like a braggart. I want to give shout outs to my editors, Barge, Glasgow, Seabass, Burdick, Fields, Fantzy, Quan and Moose, who've helped me in ways I doubt I could ever sufficiently put into words, as well as two readers who came out of the woodwork to encourage me, Dave Blaida and Shannon Stoddard. And then of course my friends and all you badass readers. Full Story
