Letters l Valmont in perspective

An insider’s look at the CWA
My grandpa is a teddy bear of a man, and I’d bet he gives the best hugs this side of the Mississippi. When he found out that I would attend his alma matter, he pulled me in to one of those big hugs, then put on a stern manner and a furrowed brow and said, “Now Hadley, there’s one thing you have to remember at CU.

eco-briefs | Energy companies outbid farmers for water
As should have been expected, when an auction is attended by oil executives and farmers all trying to buy up the same thing, the farmers came out on the short end. Nearly all of this year’s available water was snatched up by the oil and gas companies to be used for their fracking operations.

Borgore ruined dubstep before anyone else
Borger is naturally unfazed that the video for “Flex (Borgore’s Dubstep Remix)” has more negative votes on YouTube than positive. He referred to the song as “next-level offensive,” and the video features him with an entourage of strippers dancing around a tricked-out station wagon.

Starting in 1975, Ebert began a rather novel idea for a film series, which he called “Cinema Interruptus.” Screen the film on day one, and on days two through five, screen the film again, but allow any audience member to stop the film (by yelling “Stop!”) and begin a discussion.

Fairy tale, retold
A booster shot of testosterone lends kinetic kick to director Tarsem Singh’s visually inventive interpretation, without shortchanging the requisite froufrou or sugarcoating the story’s dark Oedipal heart.
