    The Gazette editorial
    Published: Tue, Sep 23, 2014

    Published: Tue, Sep 23, 2014

    Democrats seem intent on making this election about choice. What else explains the barrage of ads in the Colorado U.S. Senate race with the false narrative that a woman's right to get a legal abortion is in jeopardy? Since the 1973 landmark Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade has...

    Published: Sun, Sep 21, 2014

    Prehistoric rhetoric such as this In Doug Lamborn's Sept. 18 opinion in which he so loosely deploys labels such as "anti-energy" and "barely-working", he clearly demonstrates his scientific ignorance and a futile wish to go back in time. Instead of responsibly embracing intelligent...
