Living in Colorado can be confusing. Last week saw record-breaking warmth along the Front Range, with temperatures reaching the 70s. Earlier this week, we marked the coldest night of the year as the mercury fell below zero. It seems as though there ought to be someone to call when the weather swings so wildly, someone in state government who could coordinate things when residents have questions or complaints about the climate changing like it does. Alas, that someone won't be former House Majority Leader Alice Madden, the Boulder Democrat named this week to the new position of climate-control coordinator. She has other fish to fry.
