On this date in 1954 Ellis Island closed after processing more than 20 million immigrants since opening in New York Harbor in 1892.

Today is the legal observance of Veterans Day. November 11 was first proclaimed by President Wilson in 1919 after World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” - officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France.

Google "Colorado caucus" and what comes up?

Articles about the caucus 2 years ago! Why aren't Colorado newspapers writing about the upcoming 2008 caucus? For the 48th time since 1912 Colorado neighbors will gather to start the process of nominating to the primary ballot.

Every two years we have the chance for a state wide civics lesson. Looks to me like the Colorado media is flunking the test! No wonder only 8% of the people in Colorado even know the system exists!

There are Meetups for new Dems and GOP, go to meetup.com, search on party of your choice.

Or Friday join us for the wide-open, non-partisian, Denver Grassroots Rally, where someone is sure to give an explaination of the system. http://cocacop.meetup.com/2
