I linked to the Rocky Mountain News hundreds of times over the years from Coyote Gulch. I was pulling for their online operation. It was easy to see that news reading was moving online. Daily readership of print has been declining for years.
I grew up in Denver and the Rocky Mountain News was the family paper since I can remember. I still subscribe. Through tomorrow.
When I was a kid I didn’t know any Rocky delivery people but I hung out with a bunch of the North Denver kids that delivered the Denver Post in the afternoon. The public school kids mixing it up with the Catholic kids after school. I remember that they were all pretty tough when conflict arose. The guy that ran the Post shed didn’t take a flack either.
If you get a chance give Jerd Smith a job. She’s a great writer and can report on complex issues including water in Colorado.
I’m bummed so I’m taking the night off.
