My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


What's Wrong With Kids These Days?

Nothing. Or, at least, I would contend that a great number of them are outstriping the accomplishments of many of their older counterparts.

Want some proof? Come down to Invesco Field tomorrow to watch some 4000 high schoolers put blood, sweat and tears--and, oh yeah, music--into the Colorado State Marching Band Championships for Class 5A and 4A high schools. This is, if I'm not mistaken, the single largest student competition in the state, and represents literally hundreds of hours of student preparation time, not to mention countless hours on top of that of instructor and director effort. And if you can't make it to Invesco tomorrow, the small schools will have their championship competition on Monday at the new Cerry Creek Schools stadium in Aurora.
