DUPUY: The Six Degrees of Hillary Clinton Game

DUPUY: The Six Degrees of Hillary Clinton Game

Even Monica Lewinsky writing an article for Vanity Fair is a perfect premise for this stretching exercise. It’s summed up impeccably in the headline of NY Daily News columnist Linda Stasi, “Monica Lewinsky’s story reminds us Bill Clinton is to blame, Hillary Clinton doesn’t deserve female voter support.”

QUIDNUNC: Sound off on DIA noise

Councilman Bob Roth, of the house of Ward V, in the land of Southeastern Aurora, the first of his name, has eyes for the Pleather throne of the chair of mayor of Aurora

PERRY: Sure it’s a gamble, but consider opening a casino at Aurora’s Arapahoe Park

PERRY: Sure it’s a gamble, but consider opening a casino at Aurora’s Arapahoe Park

Aurora could do right what current casino towns have done wrong. Central City and Black Hawk, once decaying historical mining towns, were supposed to blossom into fun tourism meccas

GANDELMAN: A Second Chance for Donald Sterling?

GANDELMAN: A Second Chance for Donald Sterling?

Sterling wound up proving (1) he is a confirmed racist, (2) if the NBA values its branding they must get him to sell the team, and, (3) he is not quite as smart as a can of cat food.

JENSEN: A New Angle to Benghazi: Gunrunning

PERRY: Aurora doesn’t have a prayer in keeping religion out of city hall

Since Aurora officials at least make an effort to spread around the prayers and deities starting at the beginning of each meeting, it’s hard to say if all this praying does any good. Did Buddah sign off on the red-light traffic cameras or was it the Blessed Virgin?

GANDELMAN: America has just had its jolting Michael Corleone moment.

GANDELMAN: America has just had its jolting Michael Corleone moment.

The question is whether Bundy and Sterling have pulled America totally back in, or whether the repudiation they sparked and the large number of people now shunning them mark a new era where racism — its practitioners and those who enable them — is no longer tolerated, and is rejected with the same dogged determination as bigots show in their bigotry.

JENSEN: No Room in America for ‘Plantation Mentality’

I think we can all agree that these athletes have earned their wealth and there’s no room for Sterling’s “plantation mentality,” just as there’s no room in American discourse for racists like Nevadans Rancher Cliven Bundy and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid who speak of African Americans as some collective entity they like to call “The Negro.”
