Summit Up 2-6-13: Where we celebrate Bob Marley’s birthday
February 5, 2013
Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that is proudly wearing a homemade wig of not-so-natty dreads in honor of Bob Marley’s birthday. He was born on this day in 1945. There might be other, Amendment 64-related ways to express our appreciation of Tuff Gong’s music other than a phony Trustafarian hairstyle, but Dillon and Frisco recently voted to put a temporary moratorium on recreational ganja-preneurs and we’ll hold our breathe until that’s lifted. But in the meantime, we jah-min – responsibly. Outside of Jamaica, though, Colorado might still be one of best places to celebrate Marley’s artistic legacy. As you know, Millions of Summit Up readers, Marley ascribed almost religious significance to marijuana. We wonder what he would make of recent changes to the state’s drug laws. Is there a Rastafarian on the governor’s task force. Maybe there should be.
Speaking of law-abiding, we received this Angel Alert!! Angel Alert!! from Ron Barnard: “To a person I don’t know, to the Target Store in Silverthorne, to officer M. Higby of Silverthorne Police: Thank you for returning a retirement check that I had signed and lost in the Target parking lot on Feb. 1. May you all be rewarded and blessed for your honesty and concern.”
If we could all be so fortunate. What have you lost that has never resurfaced? Send us your story of objects lost and found. We at Summit Up usually keep a pretty close watch on our personal effects, but if you see a wig lying about town, let us know. It appears to have vanished.
No Summit Up no cry.
