  • "If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun." Katherine Hepburn (1907-2003) who was born today.

    Not Quite What I was Planning: Six Word Memoirs from Writers Famous and Obscure collects almost 1,000 six-word memoirs, including additions from many celebrities including Stephen Colbert, Amy Sedaris, Dave Eggers, Richard Ford, Deepak Chopra, Moby, and more. Legend has it that Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only six words. His response? “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

    Here’s mine: “61 years now, feel like 16.”

    The Rocky Mountain News gave almost no coverage to the 1st Congressional District Assembly that was held Saturday at Denver’s South High School. Here's my comment on the sad state of affairs I just posted on their online version:

What else in Denver attracts this many people and gets so little news coverage? Thanks for your very good color comentary, Tina, but where is the play by play record of the game?

It's not here because John Temple has openly declaired war on our wonderful Colorado Caucus. Can we apply to Scripps Howard to get a replacement? Someone who really cares about Colorado and our traditions?

With support from at least one of our daily newspapers, the Colorado Caucus could become as big as the Iowa Caucus, which Mr. Temple found interesting enought to SEND A FULL TIME REPORTER. Why don't we get the same coverage here at home?

Mad as hell and not going to take it anymore? Join us at Denver Speakers Corner next June 8th, 4 p.m., North Pavillion in Civic Center Park. More info, video of our 1st meeting w/ Dennis Gallagher, and optional RSVP at
