MANY MOONS have passed since I navigated the troubled shoals of 1968. The year that changed the world in ways we never anticipated changed me forever.

While I’ve never misplaced that time, memories hit like a tidal wave after visiting the History Colorado Center’s “1968 Exhibit,” a historical, visual and sensory timeline of 12 months in the life of America. But I get ahead of myself — or behind. Sometimes it’s hard to tell.

Growing up in the Jewish Bible Belt

Growing up in the Jewish Bible BeltWHEN the Rocky Mountain News stopped its presses for the last time in 2009, setting a good many talented people adrift, the newspaper’s editorial cartoonist was one of the lucky few who managed to land on his feet.

The stuff of legends

The stuff of legendsIt’s accurate to call Marshall Fogel a collector, but hardly sufficient. His collection of baseball memorabilia is nothing less than legendary, said to be second only to that of the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY. Nor does the word “collector” come close to covering the bases — pun fully intended — of the many other facets of this modern Renaissance man’s life. When he isn’t chasing yet another precious baseball artifact, or sharing his extensive expertise on ...
