I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly. Winston Churchill

Never let yesterday use up too much of today. Will Rogers

Shake the dust from your feet. Luke 9:5

Yesterday I heard Greg Moore, publisher of the Denver Post, and John Temple, publisher of the Rocky Mountain News, talk about operating under the JOA (Joint Operating Agreement) that was put in place January 2001. Moore said, “The first thing I do each morning is go out on my driveway and get my copy of the Rocky Mountain News.” He’s one of the few in Denver to read both papers, Moore and Temple agreed that people who read both papers regularly has dropped way, way off and is now less than 10% of newspaper readers. They also agreed that the competion today is not each other but the Washington Post, the Los Angels Times, the New York Times, and Matt Drudge online.

John Temple is under the impression that coverage of Denver and Colorado government and politics is better now, what do you think? Temple also stated that he doesn’t think the Colorado caucus is worthy of a news story, that people just aren’t interested in it. Maybe he’ll get interested in the story if the New York Times and the other national online news media start covering it. That should happen this year as both the GOP and Dems do overnight reporting of caucus results.

While selling out isn't every entrepreneur's objective, perhaps it should be, says Ned Minor, a transaction attorney in Denver and author of the book Deciding to Sell Your Business: The Key to Wealth and Freedom. "Eventually, every business owner will leave their business," says Minor, "either sitting down at the deal table, or feet first on a stretcher."
