    1. .Why do you so often come up with dumbass things like butterscotch pudding day or taco day, Barnes, while missing the fact that today is Mother Cabrini day, a significant event for Coloradans? 

       

      1. Indeed. Mother Cabrini was a remarkable soul who opened over 70 schools and orphanages across the country. 

        Her shrine overlooking Denver is a beautiful place but there should be a monument to an Indian peacemaker or healer nearby.

  1. Good news … it only took a decade for the Denver Zoo to decide to apologize for its policies and some volunteers' role leading to the 2011 death of Alonzo Ashley.

    As the zoo neared its closing time and as animals were making their nests for the night, zoo officials did what Ashley’s family and community activists had been asking for years — take responsibility and make amends. Along with the apology, Vescolani unveiled a plaque with Ashley’s image, a short description of Ashley’s character and a Bible verse. The plaque will be placed on a rock beside a new water fountain and cooling station built in Ashley’s memory.

    There might be a need for a bit more

    For Denver community activists, it is the first time in their memory where an institution installed a public memorial for someone killed by police and offered a public apology, said Alex Landau of the Denver Justice Project…..

    The eight officers involved in Ashley’s death were cleared of wrongdoing by the Denver district attorney’s office and did not face any disciplinary action from the Denver Police Department. In 2016, Denver paid Ashley’s family $295,000 to settle a lawsuit.
