Lapham’s Quarterly Winter 2013: Intoxication
The cover figure is a kylix (drinking cup). FINISHED! Reading, that is. In record time for me. One month of reading and only a half month into the Jan-Mar winter quarter. I usually spend the entire quarter intermittently reading this excellent literary compendium. Now I will have time to investigate the noteworthy Fall 2011 issue The … Continue reading Lapham’s Quarterly Winter 2013: Intoxication

(P.S. High school buildings are BIG these days!) That 17% turnout of warm bodies … Continue reading The Colorado Republican Caucus 2012

It seems like a newsworthy subject, but the article didn’t say: a) what are the lengths of the term, b) how much of the term is left, c) is the … Continue reading DougCo Term Limits
