Radio ratings people call KDKO-AM's sound urban contemporary, but from 7 to 8:30 a.m. every Sunday, the station drifts back in time when Old Ship of Zion, which has been on the air for nearly four decades, sets sail for gospel ports of call. Hosts Beverly and T.C. Young are married gospel performers who sing His praises at services around town. Now, jump up and say Hallelujah!

It's debatable whether the joint operating agreement between the Rocky Mountain News and the Denver Post saved the News from sure death -- but it certainly seems to have lit a fire under the staff. The Post has the edge in terms of resources, but the News is doing more with less. We're glad Denver remains a two-newspaper town, and the Post definitely is capable of making a comeback. But if you only have time to read one daily these days, make it the News.

While it's easy for daily newspaper columnists to take on obvious targets, like scandal-plagued Enron, it's a lot harder to attack the companies in their own back yards. The commentators run the risk of outraging the company's employees and being blamed for the loss of advertising when angry CEOs yank their ads out of the paper. That makes Denver Post business editor Al Lewis all the more remarkable. During the past year, he's taken on the likes of Qwest and Level 3 with gutsy delight, aiming his acerbic wit directly at the CEOs who helped lead both companies into stock-market meltdowns. Here's hoping Lewis keeps his pen sharp and his words aimed directly at the heart of corporate arrogance.
