    This personification of corporate greed is now throwing out a blizzard of lies to hide who she is.

    In 1992, independent candidate Ross Perot chose Admiral James Stockdale, a complete unknown, as his presidential running mate. In his first debate, the VP candidate began by asking two good questions: “Who am I? Why am I here?”

  • Dear Editor,

    I, like many others, noticed Congressman (Jared) Polis (D-2nd) recently voted to terminate the life of a child that survived a botched abortion procedure. Abortion is not birth control.

    In the first two Republican presidential debates, the candidates slugged it out over who hated Planned Parenthood the most.

    Virtually every hopeful promised to defund the organization. Some of them, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), are vowing to force the issue — even if it means shutting down the federal government.

    Imagine an employer providing extra bathroom breaks for a pregnant employee or giving her a stool to sit on. Sound like a good idea? It is and I absolutely support it.

    Maybe the most telling moment of Pope Francis’s address to Congress came when he finally got to abortion. This would be, at last, the Republicans’ turn to glow in the papal light.

  • Dear Editor,

    [Last week’s] Supreme Court decision is extremely disappointing for every educator, family and student in Colorado. The Court’s ruling essentially allows the legislature to circumvent Amendment 23, passed by voters in 2000, and its clear mandate requiring the legislature to increase public education funds.

    BRIGHTON – Brady Jacovetta and Sam Kullberg connected on Brighton’s only scoring play of the game in a 13-8 homecoming loss to Denver East Sept. 25.

    They were the first two players to address their teammates afterward.

  • Dear Editor, family and friends,

    Your kind expression of sympathy and friendship in the passing of our father (Robert O. Bonacquisti, died July 31, obituary published Aug. 5) will always remain in our memories.. Thank you for your kindness, thoughtfulness and love. Please forgive us if we overlooked anyone.

    McDonald’s pledge last week to start using cage-free eggs is only a small step in preventing staggering suffering endured by millions of birds.

    DENVER — With the Denver Broncos season underway, the Better Business Bureau is warning fans to watch out for scammers that might be trying to peddle counterfeit tickets online and outside the stadium right up until the opening kickoff. 

    BBB reminds everyone that they run the risk of getting thrown for a loss if they decide to gamble on a less than reputable ticket source.

    During a recent visit to Copenhagen, I squeezed in a visit with city officials to learn more about the Danish health system, particularly the country’s arrangements for long-term care, a topic that draws endless complaints from American families, including many readers of this column.

    For today’s report, I have a bunch of statistics for you.

    Where are you going? Come back here and sit still while I drill these stats into your head!

    I realize that numbers can numb the brain, but this is a good story, and I promise that these statistics are easy to absorb. In fact, the number 400 pretty much sums it up.

    September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. While suicide often catches surviving family members and friends by surprise, a lot of scientific research exists about the causes and deterrents of suicide. Knowledge makes a difference and saves lives.
