Denver Post - Trying to Understand Charles Plunkett

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

So, we struggle today to understand why Plunkett published an editorial in his newspaper - The Denver Post - on April 6th attacking its owner. As at many newspapers, the Denver Post had been going through layoffs. Many of us in communications started out doing some form of journalism. But we didn't stay in that field long enough to develop the mindset and values of a true journalist - that is, someone like Charles Plunkett who truly has ink in his soul.

Denver STEM School Massacre - Remembering When School Was Sanctuary

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The massacre at the Denver STEM school was a tragedy. But no surprise. Again, children received the message that school was not a safe place.    Their generation will never experience the school as a kind of sanctuary from the troubled parts of their little lives.    Our generation remembers concerned teachers who picked up on who among us needed encouragement. My teacher mandated that I go to college. 

Denver Post to Cut 30 in Newsroom

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The battle for the life of the Denver Post has gone high-profile. The owner of the Denver Post is Randall Smith of hedge fund Alden Global Capital.   The repeated rounds of layoffs at the Denver Post have been big news. Loyalists to the old-line print newspaper industry are fighting to keep them alive. Meanwhile, the longer-term existence of once powerful brandnames in journalism, ranging from the San Jose Mercury News to the Orange County Register, is also in peril.

Quick & Dirty Views on the Obama/Romney Debate in Denver

Speak and Deliver

Well, that was fun. I'm not going to pick the debate apart for politics or policy, or about the fact that Romney's flag pin was slightly larger, but on speaking points alone: - Romney is clearly the better debater , the better speaker of the two. For all the rhetoric four years ago about how great a speaker President Obama is, he was too tentative tonight, ahhing and uhhing all over the place, giving the impression he was making it up as he went along.

The break-out came in a 2012 speech in Denver when President Obama stated: “The Affordable Care Act… also known as ObamaCare. by Peter Watts. One man’s meat”, as the old saying goes, “is another man’s poison” and by the same token, one brand’s insult can become another brand’s praise. It’s all down to how you frame the debate. Take “ObamaCare” for example! Please don’t hang-up! No matter which side of the political debate you find yourself sitting on.

It helps that I live in Denver. But since he's taken over as QB for the Denver Broncos, he's taken them from 1-4 to 6-5, and in a position, however unlikely, of making the playoffs.

It also helps that he appears to be a pretty nice guy with a value system that's fits nicely with my own.

Paging. someone

Sitting in the Denver airport last week waiting for my flight home, I noticed a handy passenger-communication system called visual paging.

Seems like a great idea, huh?
