    Wow, Ric Ocasek! Man, I'm a fan. The Cars. New Wave. Shit. But I gotta say, it's pretty weird: you interviewing me. I'm usually the one asking the questions. Love that one song, "Since You're Gone." Good stuff. Oh, you're gonna play your, uh, your synthesizer while we talk. Alrighty then. Hey, you do you, Ric, you do you.

    Peace Train: Understanding the Ukraine Crisis
    09/04/2014 08:54 PM MDT - The current crisis in Ukraine is the most perilous confrontation between nuclear armed states since the end of the Cold War. It could even escalate into a nuclear war.

    FRITZ: Tuesday blues
    08/31/2014 08:09 PM MDT - I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "What could possibly be wrong with Tuesdays? Isn't Monday the day everyone hates?" Probably, yeah.

    Peace Train: Happy Labor Day
    08/28/2014 08:23 PM MDT - This weekend we are celebrating Labor Day, the one day a year we recognize the contributions of labor. Until recently, workers took their benefits - the eight-hour day, good pay, unemployment insurance, Social Security, paid vacation and holidays - for granted. Corporations did not bestow these benefits upon workers out of generosity. Instead workers fought long and hard - and many gave their lives - to secure these benefits for all of us.  Full Story

    Guest column: Boulder fosters community of cyclists
    08/27/2014 09:08 PM MDT - And one of the most unique aspects of this city's culture is how much biking is supported and fostered by the community.

    FRITZ: Washed the spider out
    08/17/2014 09:03 PM MDT - To Whom It May Concern, I regret to inform you your son/father/brother passed away earlier this morning. Time of death: 9:16 a.m. Perhaps I'm being presumptuous, but I can only assume he was a Sir and not a Madam. I don't envision many grown women finding it appropriate to surprise a naked person in the shower.  Full Story

    RYAN: Later, nerds
    08/12/2014 09:02 PM MDT - Over the years, I've learned plenty of lessons about being a nerd - some fun, some not-so-fun, and some slightly pointless. And for the two years I've been writing this column I've had the joy of sharing some of those lessons with you - and picking up some lessons from all of you along the way. But I'm more than a year out of the Herd and it's time to pass the torch to another wordy nerd (heh.)  Full Story
