Should Colorado Restrict Interstate Truck Traffic to Help Its Ski Industry?

Last spring the mayor of this glitzy ski town high in the Colorado Rockies wondered aloud, after a particularly brutal winter wreaked havoc on the local interstate, whether guests from New York, Dallas and Chicago would keep flocking to the slopes if they encountered big-city traffic once they arrived. "I think that's going to begin to hurt Colorado as people look to places that have a great lifestyle and part of that lifestyle is easy access to recreation," Vail Mayor Andy Daly said.

Dodgersa Clayton Kershaw is having the best season of any pitcher since 1995

The Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw might never become a strikeout king like Randy Johnson or throw 680 innings like 24-year-old Will White did in 1879, but he's having the best season of any pitcher since Greg Maddux in 1995. He's throwing his fastball at a career-low rate and has brandished his slider and 12-to-6 curveball exponentially more this season, helping him throw a career-high 69 percent of his pitches for strikes.
