City leaders in Boulder challenged U.S. Census Bureau data ten years ago and they may do it again following newly released numbers that place the city’s population below their own estimate.
Boulder's population has grown 2.9 % from the 2000 count but city leaders say the official 2010 count and an earlier estimate from the Census Bureau are nowhere close to matching. City planner Chris Meschuk expected a difference– but not as much as what came out this week.
In 2000 I was a 23-year-old fledgling writer. I had no idea how to write a story but wanted to do nothing else.
For one semester, Joy Williams — whose short-story collection Taking Care I'd long admired — was my teacher. With cutting precision and candor she tore into our drafts. Her clarity of vision, as writer and teacher both, astonished me.
It's become a familiar sight that, at the beginning of a film, names flash across the screen one after the other: co-producers, line producers, associate producers, executive and co-executive producers. This year's 10 best picture nominees for the Academy Awards have 110 producers between them, and trying to decipher who actually made these movies left me feeling like Laurence Olivier as Marcus Licinius Crassus, on the hunt for the real Spartacus in a sea full of voices clamoring for credit.
