Tomorrow, Ef Rodriguez departs Boulder for Amsterdam, a city famous for its bicycles and pot (if Amsterdam had more Subarus, Ef might not even realize he had moved). Best of luck to you, Ef. Come back home soon.

Garfield County Sheriff’s Tinfoil Hat Falls Off

Filed under: Pro Bono

If you are looking for a pro bono project, Garfield County Sheriff Lou Vallario could use some public relations counsel. Here’s the first sentence from his most recent press release:

“In response to the lies and slanderous accusations by the ACLU, the most dangerous organization to the United States of America today, as well as the Denver Post, channel 7 news (Denver) and others who produced stories without any attempt to contact the Garfield County Sheriff for an accurate response, here is the official GCSO response: The Garfield County Sheriff’s Office has never turned over a victim of a crime to any organization.”

I realize there probably isn’t a Garfield County chapter of Al-Qaeda, so the sheriff’s perspective may be skewed, but is the ACLU really “the most dangerous organization to the United States of America today?” And are official Garfield County Sheriff’s Department press releases really the right venue to settle personal grudges?
