Coming out in favor of reporter shield laws is about as controversial as reaffirming a “pro apple pie” stance. Saying news organizations deserve the right to protect sources isn’t risky at all. That’s the way it should be. News reporters should be allowed to shield whistleblowers and courageous sources willing to put it all on […]

Dear Presidential Candidates, As an officially unaffiliated voter in Arapahoe County, Colo. with a household income that’s slightly on the wrong side of average for the nation, I think you’ve been talking to me. I hear I’m in your wheelhouse because I’m looking for a president that’ll give Americans a better fiscal foothold and ensure […]

see-ee-oohz R stoopid. Chik-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy doesn’t only serve a lot of fried chicken, he also shared the mental capacity of one when he got on a radio show broadcasting from the middle of nowhere and spewed politics instead of Chick-fil-A sauce. This, of course, should surprise no one. That’s because considering the average […]

Anyone brave enough to say mental illness doesn’t effect everyone now? There’s no question that the alleged gunman who killed 12 and injured 58 more was severely, very mentally ill. Stockpiling weapons, ammunition and the creation of a circus-like madhouse of booby traps and incendiary devices isn’t “crazy,” it’s mentally ill. The question now is […]

I’ve gotten a lot of calls from media worldwide are asking the same question over and over today: “What’s Aurora like?” As someone who grew up in this suburb — the last stop east before Kansas City and little brother to Denver to the west — it’s an easy question to answer, this is what […]

“Adventure” might not be its middle name — it’s “XV,” the letters, not 15 — but the Crosstrek certainly sounds like an running shoe and requires just as much agility to pronounce it. From here on out, we’ll just call it the Crosstrek and make it easy on ourselves.

Let me first preface this entire thing with: I like the New York Times enough to pay too much to have it delivered to my home every weekend. Having said that, dance critic Alastair Macaulay’s description of the Statue of Liberty from his bedroom window may be more esoteric than poetry written in Sanskrit. Passages […]

#FASTFRIDAY: What happens when it (almost) all goes wrong?

Watch champion driver and all-around badass Mark Higgins save a Subaru going 150 mph. The near crash happened almost this time last year at the Isle of Man TT race. Flying around the small British island, setting a record in an Impreza STI was the order of the day, but things got a little hairy […]

I fall in love with everything I see because I’m stupid. No one felt about Betamax like I did. Remember Crystal Clear Pepsi? I cried for 17 days. Fool me into love once, shame on you. Fool me twice, call yourself a former girlfriend. The 2012 Audi A8L isn’t your typical lover — if I […]

#FastFriday: Watch American muscle blitz the German ‘ring

That’s a Corvette ZL1 trashing the Nurburgring record at 7:19:63 — a couple years ago. To be fair, it’s not the production record, but it is the fastest lapping car you could theoretically walk onto a dealer’s lot and buy today. The Viper ACR does it a few seconds faster, but good luck getting your […]
