    Thanks pointing us to the comments section.

    Here is one that grabbed my attention:

    S.A. Harris

    “Who is the “We” this article keeps referencing? The CO Editorial Board? You all think the same way? Every single one of you??? That is sad. So you admit that you refuse to hire others who don’t think just like you? You don’t want to be challenged with new ideas from those from a different age group/religion/race than your own? Is it too much for each board member to have their own idea and not be afraid to express it? Do you punish/fire those who don’t conform to your clique ideals?

    CO — you just admitted that you are not partial. You need to take a good, hard long look at yourself. How can any piece of journalism you write be taken seriously when it is written from only one biased perspective???

    It is pretty obvious the CO Board needs a staff makeover. Workplace tolerance equals having to sit through meetings and lunches and processing points of view other than your own even though you may be uncomfortable in the moment. Something you guys are obviously not doing.”
