I'M GOING OVER AMENDMENTS 74 AND 75 AND PROP 111 TODAY And one of these is one I've vacillated about. Amend 74 would force government to reimburse property owners when changes are made by government that cause lost potential income. Although I agree that property owners need protection from actions that infringe on their rights, this has too many potential unintended consequences for my taste. I'd rather see a more well thought out plan to protect property owners than this, I'm voting NO on Amendment 74. Amendment 75 is a cool shot at leveling the playing field when a very rich person tries to buy an office (Jared Polis, I'm looking at you). It simply raises the campaign donation limit IF a candidate pours a million bucks of his or her own money into the raise. I am an enthusiastic YES on 75. Prop 111 will essentially shut down the payday lending business. I am opposed to this because though OCCASIONALLY people do get caught in a payday loan, Colorado already regulates them and like it or not, this is often the only legal way for poor people with bad credit to get the money they need in an emergency. I am voting NO on Prop 111. Find Ross Kaminsky's voter guide (we agree on all but 74) by clicking here. Our own Mike Rosen did a voter's guide too, find it here.
DAVE HAS HAD IT UP TO HERE WITH IPADS TAUNTING HIM TO TIP! And I'll let you hear it from him but he's got a point.

THIS OBITUARY IS SUCH AN HONEST LOOK AT OUR DRUG EPIDEMIC And I put it here for every parent who has a kid that they haven't talked to about drugs or drug addiction or pills at parties. May this woman's family find peace in memories that don't include her addiction. Read it here.
THE TWO GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATES SQUARED OFF LAST NIGHT And Jared Polis finally started talking about raising taxes to pay for his schemes he's proposing, but with very little detail. Stapleton tried to make the old arrest report of Polis pushing a former employee news but it just doesn't have any stickiness. Watch the debate at the link at the bottom of this article.
LET'S FACE IT, MEN DO HAVE MORE BOOGERS Which is why "Man Size Kleenex" does not offend me. But the tissues, sold only in the UK, have offended some who label the name "sexist". So Kleenex will change them to "Extra Large". And men will be the only ones who buy them, sooooo....
THIS DUDE IS A MIX OF CHUCK NORRIS AND INDIANA JONES A 62 year old man fell down a mine shaft, broke some bones, had to kill some rattlesnakes and was successfully rescued.
NEBRASKA'S NEW TOURISM CAMPAIGN IS BRILLIANT Because they replaced the horrible boring "Nebraska Nice" slogan with "Nebraska, Honestly it's not for Everyone" which is just fantastic. Read about the whole Colorado-created ad campaign here.
A TRANSGENDER WOMAN WON A RACE AND IT'S RIDICULOUS We better get a handle on this soon. A transgender woman who very much looks like a man with lipstick (see photo in this article) is upset because the women she beat in a bicycle race are mad because she's...well... a man. Isn't it interesting that we never see female to male transgender people winning races with men.
