    The Colorado Theory

    My apologies to those of you waiting for another writing blog. I’m still up to my eyeballs on the Sandworms edit. Just a few more days. Honest.

    Meanwhile, I thought I’d share with you a theory Kevin and I came up with years ago after moving to our castle in Colorado. The theory is this:

    Colorado will do anything — absolutely anything — to get into the news.

    That’s right, whatever it takes: High school shootings, child beauty queen murders, the latest bon mot from Focus on the Family’s James Dobson, forest fires, blizzards . . . The list goes on and on. Really. For a modestly sized state, we get waaaay more than our share of press. Religious scandal, anyone? Yup Ted Haggard’s local to Colorado Springs. Makes a lowly writer proud.

    Hey, it’s home.
