Time for TABOR to go

By Dave Anderson
But will that happen? Perhaps not as Colorado is uniquely constrained from functioning as a representative democracy. In 1992, voters passed the so-called Taxpayers’ Bill of Rights (TABOR), a constitutional measure which is the most restrictive tax and expenditure limit in the nation.

Safe Streets Alliance wants cannabis back with criminals

By Leland Rucker
About the time you think things couldn’t get any crazier in the American crazyquilt approach to cannabis: Last Thursday two lawsuits were filed against the state of Colorado to shut down legal marijuana, alleging that all legal marijuana businesses are illegal under the federal racketeering act. The next day, two U.S. congressmen introduced bills that would set up a regulatory approach to cannabis on a federal level.

SAVAGE LOVE

By Dan Savage
Shame on you for recommending adultery as a solution to a husband who can’t satisfy his wife! Satisfying a woman is easy! I learned it from a book! You just tickle the clitoris continuously with as light a touch as possible until she comes, as many times as you like.

Among her numerous lovers were the writers Alfred de Musset, Jules Sandeau and Prosper Mérimée, as well as composer Frederic Chopin and actress Marie Dorval. Her preferred work schedule was midnight to 6 a.m., and she often slept until 3 p.m. “What a brave man she was,” said Russian author Ivan Turgenev, “and what a good woman.

The booze boom in entertainment

Craft distillers take the small and big screen

By Spencer Blohm
Craft brewing has been around for 500 years. In the past decade, though, it’s taken off — especially in the United States. The appeal is obvious. Smaller batch sizes and creative recipes lend the craft brew flavors (and identities) that Budweiser can’t match.

Quality versus quantity

What Boulder County chefs and farmers say about sourcing food locally and nationally

By Wyatt Carlson
When we talk about farm-to-table in our Boulder County grocery stores and restaurants, we can sometimes take it for granted. The trend is national now. We expect a certain quality, but we forget that those same establishments need quantity in order to stay in business. While local farms provide the quality, generally speaking, the larger farms provide the quantity necessary to fill menus and grocery aisles. It means chefs and farmers (and Boulder County consumers) need to be flexible, but it’s interesting to hear what people in the industry have to say about why when we look at small versus large farms. It is always a matter of quality versus quantity.

Everyone is happy

It must be something in the chicken

By Matt Cortina
Everyone is happy at The Post. On a Friday afternoon, three cooks are laughing behind the bakery counter. When I return a week later, three new cooks — or who knows — are laughing again. The waiters, too, are all happy. Not the giddy, storemandated affability that drives you nuts. Just the calm joy of a person who’s happy to be at work. Happiness inhabits the place, an old VFW that was chicly remodeled and restored into a post-industrial lodge. It keeps smiles on the faces of the folks who have to wait tables and the folks who have to wait for tables.

Goodbye to all of that

Beyond the end with ‘Goodbye to Language’

By Michael J. Casey
In 1960, Jean-Luc Godard revolutionized cinema. Breathless wasn’t just a break from the old ways of filmmaking, it was as if cinema had cracked off and begun again. Seven years later, Godard concluded Weekend with the title card, “Fin... de cinema.” It was a cheeky moment, but for the French critic turned filmmaker, it had razor sharp teeth. Now the 84-yearold director is back with another entry into his ever-evolving theory of cinema and this time around he tackles the money-grubbing gimmick of 3-D. Only in the hands of Godard, it isn’t a gimmick, it’s just another arrow in his quiver.
