Hickenlooper: Colorado can protect security and provide a place for refugees

Governors across the country today are weighing in on how their states will respond to refugees fleeing Syria following a terrorist attack in Paris that was linked to the Islamic State extremist group — and where authorities reportedly found a Syrian passport near the body of a suicide bomber.

Today, Colorado Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper said:

“A few short days ago we witnessed another senseless act of terrorism. Our hearts go out to the families, friends and loved ones of those lost and injured in Paris, and in other acts of terror around the world. Our first priority remains the safety of our residents. We will work with the federal government and Homeland Security to ensure the national verification processes for refugees are as stringent as possible. We can protect our security and provide a place where the world’s most vulnerable can rebuild their lives.”

So far more than a dozen governors, most of them Republicans, have said they want to close their state borders to refugees from Syria. Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf and Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe both, Democrats, however, have said their states will continue accepting refugees.

Will it be snow or SNOW?

There seems to be considerable disparity between forecast models for next week's snow:

Methinks I'll play it safe and stock up.

Will they leave me alone, now?

Okay, that was fun! I just got one of “those” phone calls, the one where the caller tells me that he’s calling from Microsoft (he isn’t) because there’s a problem with Windows on my computer.

Me: What? No, my windows are fine, the housekeeper washes them every week.

Him: Microsoft Windows.

Me: My windows aren’t soft!

Him: On your computer.

Me (in my best old-lady voice): But my windows are in my walls…

Him: The Windows system, in your computer.

Me: I won a computer?

Him: No, missus, you have a computer with Windows virus.

Me: No, the only thing by my window is a plant, but I think it needs watering.

Him: I’m calling about your computer, your COMPUTER.

Me: When will it get here?

Him: You have it, your COMPUTER, it has a virus.

Me: That can’t be, I took my pills this morning.


Me: Yes, sometimes the pills help with that.

Him: (pause) Is your computer turned on? We need to fix the Windows.

Me: Well, let me go look at my windows. I’ll have to put the phone down, the cord won’t stretch that far.

Him: Missus, you don’t have to do that. … Hello? Hello? (mumbling) (click)

Me: hehehehehehehe………..
