Taken just a bit ago at 7:15 or so - 6:15 real time. I've been sitting out here in shorts and sandals enjoying the return of the warm. Not today or yesterday. It's 31° and will remain not too nice out for the rest of the day. Springtime in the Rockies.

Business Is Booming

Drove through Denver on the way to Cheneyland to eat turkey and saw this. I was a bit surprised but shouldn't be probably. Click on the picture to read the writing.
Then today in the Boulder Camera there was this.

Gun deaths have outpaced motor vehicle fatalities in Colorado since 2009, but data from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment indicate the state has passed yet another milestone in death statistics.
For the first time in 2012, suicides by firearm alone surpassed motor vehicle fatalities, with 457 Coloradans dying in fatal car crashes and 532 taking their own lives using guns.

Exceptional numbers in a country with huge societal issues that like most other things will not be discussed in any intelligent way to possibly try to do better.

Gets to be old shit - just saying.

    1. It was a high end place for this community but it was supported for quite awhile. I do not know for sure why it closed. It's been at least two years I think. I like the picture and for a "through the window" it's just fun to look at and think about just like you did.
