Summit Up 7-26-11: Approved by the Colorado Podiatry Board

Special to the Daily/Bill Linfield

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that has this breaking news from the office of Gov. John Hickenlooper:

“Albus Brooks of Denver to serve as a non-attorney.”

What could this possibly mean, you may ask? We’re not sure, but we get like 11 bazillion emails daily from Hick’s office telling us of his every movement; this one had to do with appointments to the Commission of Judicial Discpline, and it caught our eye not only for its seemingly record-breaking level of non-newsworthiness but also because Mr. Brooks shares the first name of one of our second-favorite wizard, Albus Dumbledore (after Gandalf, of course).

And here all along we thought JK Rowling made that one up, like “Hermione” or the wacky and Dickensian “Harry.”

Tune in next week when Hick ties his shoes and appoints Severus Weasley to the Commission on the Perseverance of Fruit Bats and Sugar Gliders in the World Economy (as related to Colorado).


Speaking of Dumbledore, we got a chance, finally, to go see the newest and last Harry Potter film, and we’ve gotta tell you, it’s a humdinger. We’ve been pretty much on top of this series since it first hit these shores in form of “books” (remember those?), and it was rather sad to see it come to an end.


One more item of note from Hick’s Ministry of Constant TMI: Yvonne B. Weber of Boulder has been reappointed to serve on the Colorado Podiatry Board, which we were really glad to hear about because Yvonne is a kick-ass podiatrist who really knows how to keep all those other kooky podiatrists in line.


Finally here’s a Scum Alert! Scum Alert! form Jesse Sommer, who tells of her daughter and her boy friend trying to bring his sailboat up to Lake Granby. Car trouble, a closed pass and nightfall prompted them to stop in Frisco for the night, but “they were met by the neighborhood Gestapo who informed them that they could not have a boat in the driveway and must move it immediately. Nice, huh. Apparently sympathy, compassion and just plain neighborliness take a back seat to Taliban-like enforcement of rules in the Water Dance neighborhood.”

Yikes. Gotta run. ‘Til tomorrow …
