Jun 13, 2017

Sometimes a singular event can change the trajectory of one's life, so it was with Douglas Laux who was a college freshman when the twin towers fell in New York. After graduating college, Laux joined the CIA with one central goal: getting to Afghanistan and becoming involved in covert action.  Douglas Laux's and Ralph Pezzullo's latest book "Left of Boom: How a Young CIA Case Officer Penetrated the Taliban and Al-Qaeda" describes Laux's painstakingly hard work to identify clandestine operations overseas.

The Portland, Oregon-based 'little orchestra' was founded in 1994 by Lauderdale, a Harvard graduate and classically trained pianist, to play political fundraisers for progressive causes such as civil rights, the environment, affordable housing and public broadcasting.

Twenty years ago today, the bloom was on full in lower downtown Denver.  Maybe that was even before they called it "LoDo."  Brothers Chris and Steve Black dared to open a tap house a half-block from Coors Field.  And despite its ominous moniker, the Falling Rock Tap House is still standing at 1919 Blake Street.  Chris Black joined Steve and Rodney on "First Take with Lando and Chavis."
