Classy banks
The uber-rich, of course, are used to such coddling, but now a class of customers that bankers have dubbed the “mass affluent” get cookies, too. Think you might qualify? You do ... if you have a minimum of $500,000 to open one of these mass-affluent accounts.

Letters l Danish and his cave
The March 22 story “Taste-trepreneurs” incorrectly described the way in which Life Opening processes its cacao beans. The cacao beans are not soaked or germinated. Rather, they are dried at low temperatures. Therefore, they are “alive” and keep all of their available nutrients.

It’s time to talk about rape
In October, it will have been 20 years since I wrote my first Uncensored column. The subject of that column was sexual assault, a topic that I’ve covered again and again. The column was written in response to a series of ignorant letters to the editor written about rape by men from the Boulder community.

In case you missed it | Pat Roberston sees the light
Robertson saying he’s now a hero to the hippie culture? Was he high? He soon returned to his usual form, however, when he addressed the issue of the Denver Broncos signing Peyton Manning and dumping Tim Tebow. Apparently referring to his holiness, Mr. Tebow, Robertson suggested that if Manning got injured this season, it would serve the Broncos right.

Coughing up something nasty
But behind the facade of success, Doughty was seething. Struggles with his bandmates over songwriting rights and other clashes became a force that pushed him into deep and heavy drug use, withering his doughy frame to a mere 135 pounds. He quit the band, got clean and embarked on a solo career.

He came, he saw, he kvetched
Whiteside’s increasingly unwilling hosts are the Stanley family. Father Ernest ( Jim Porter) is a suc cessful businessman whose patience with Mr. Whiteside’s ever-more-onerous intrusion quickly dwindles. Wife and mother Daisy (Elaine Niesen) comports herself as a paragon of Midwestern civility, but she is utterly overmatched by Whiteside’s bluster.

Remake worth watching
Jenko and Schmidt weren’t friends in high school, as we learn in the 2005-set prologue. Jenko was the jock triumphant and a lousy student, and Schmidt (sporting an impressive mouthful of braces) spent most of his waking hours being embarrassed by his parents.

Cooking l I first discovered Choux in Cooking with Pomaine,
Choux paste, for those who aren’t familiar, is French plaster made from flour, eggs, butter and milk or water, or both. And not only does it plug small holes in drywall, it also has a few uses in the kitchen, most notably, profiteroles — also known as “cream puffs” if you drive an electric-mobility scooter.

Dressing up your drinks for spring
My two favorites are cucumber and watermelon. They go really well together in a combination. I love cucumber in general — just the scent and the oils give you a really nice, refreshing, vibrant cocktail. Watermelon is my distant second, and they supposedly have really great health benefits like antioxidants.

A distinctive Indian lunch buffet
For those old enough, you may remember 1985 as a dark time, mostly because that’s when McDonald’s launched the McDLT. In today’s recycling-conscious age, the McDLT probably wouldn’t exist. For those of you unfamiliar with this environmental atrocity, this was a burger adorned with lettuce and tomato that came in a double-chambered Styrofoam container.

Astrology l Week of March 29, 2012
“Go to the worst crimeinfested place you can find. Go heavily armed, wearing a flak jacket and a Kevlar helmet. Set up shop in a vacant lot. Announce to the residents that you are there to help them, and in the loudest voice possible yell that every Crip and Blood within hearing distance is a PANSY.
