This is who we are. This is who we have decided to be. It is painful to consider, which must be why so many people are ready to ignore the fact. We are a nation where mass murder happens and happens and happens and happens and happens again — this time as 22,000 people come […]
Arguing about the $25,000 cost of the special session was valid right up until the moment Hickenlooper invoked it on Monday. Lawmakers are there now, and fixing the mistake is a no-brainer
