Joshua Vohs is what's known in the incarceration business as a recidivist. Punish him for a crime -- say, taking the creepiest pics imaginable -- and it doesn't dissuade him from doing so again. And again. Granted, he did mix things up a little bit for his latest gambit. His first two busts involve ... More >>

As I sat in a coffee shop yesterday, camped out with my laptop and a mission to actually get some writing done, I knew full well that I wouldn't really get anything accomplished. Not because I'd be distracted with the mundane cruising of Facebook for hours at a time like I am at home, but because th ... More >>
Last weekend, I went farm-hopping in Brighton, Greeley, Henderson and Broomfield, and while Bing cherries, Inferno peppers (good God, those suckers are hot), apples, peaches, purple plums and heirloom tomatoes are all fine for snacking on in between stops, I was hankering for a real breakfast, which ...

Remember Richard Reid, the so-called Shoe Bomber, who's among the ten most infamous prisoners in Colorado's supermax prison? Well, now we have a Shoe Cameraman -- not that Joshua Vohs took photos of shoes. Instead, he used the device to snap images up women's skirts. No, we're not making this up.

Beware the killer cantaloupes! It sounds like a horror-flick spoof, but for Jensen Farms in Holly, it's all too real.

Green Day 21st Century Breakdown (Reprise Records) The five years since the release of American Idiot, an album so strong that most critics didn't believe the Green Day crew had it in them, have only added to the burden of expectations for 21st Century Breakdown, as Billie Joe Armstrong and pals ...

My wife and I have been told to arrive between 2 and 3 to get our tickets to see the Late Show with David Letterman. We arrive at a quarter to two just to be on the safe side, and people are already lining up. We're one of the first to line up, excited, thinking that pretty soon we'll be inside th ... More >>
I got this call at work two weeks back. It was someone asking me if I wanted tickets to go see David Letterman. Now, it's been a longtime goal of mine to see David Letterman's show in person.
