Colorado's vehicle title and registration system crashed earlier this week and isn’t expected to be back online until Monday. That means vehicle owners can’t get their titles in person at the DMV today.
The agency says it will start mailing out titles next week when the system is back online. The issue stems from a '80s era computer set up, which has antiquated hardware and software.
“We have to work with what we have,” said Mark Couch, spokesperson for the Colorado Department of Revenue. “And keep making repairs and make sure that it stays up more than it is down.”
Lanford Wilson, the Pulitzer Prize-winning American playwright whose work made waves both on and off-Broadway, passed away yesterday at age 73.
Wilson's work was always personal, whether he was writing about characters from his native Missouri or the prostitutes and junkies in the greasy spoon across the street from his New York apartment. In 1965, that coffee shop became the setting for his first major success.
The Triangle Shirtwaist Fire on March 25, 1911, remains one of the greatest workplace tragedies in American history. The deaths of 146 garment workers in New York City — most of them young, immigrant women — led to legislative reforms on a national level and spurred the growth of organized labor. On the 100th anniversary of the tragedy, people around the country are remembering the victims, and the labor legacy they inspired.
