It's ibuprofen weather.

The joints don't know what the heck is going on.

We were in the 70s today. And they just announced a Winter Storm warning for tonight. Severe winter weather is expected.

Gotta love Colorado!

The Politicization of Policing

On the surface, Ken Buck’s “Blue Lives Matter” proposal looks good. Like Mr. Buck said, “I can’t imagine anyone would be opposed to protecting police officers.” I agree. My brother is a cop. I would do anything to protect him and his fellow officers.
