' Back in Salt Lake City,
when we were working on the.
Pacific Citizen, we always
enjoyed picking up the Mile
Hi Bulletin, .Many times we
wished the PC could be as
sprightly,. as unhibited and
as bright as the Bulletin*
But we could never find a
valid reason for putting a
picture of a bullno mat-
ter how cleverly drawn
atop any of our columns,
and the wish usually died
a-bornin1*
Of course, back in those
days, we never expected to
be turning out a column for
the Bulletin,, right along
with Bill Hosokawa, a most
reliable and faithful col-
umnist*
But then, back in those
lays, we never dreamed we
too, would be living in
Denver* For, to borrow an
old Denver Post slogan, it
is indeed a privilege to
live in Colorado
It was a wrench, natural-
ly, to leave Salt Lake City.
One never leaves a town
without feeling that much
of him is. left behind* We
miss the people and the wa-
ter running along the gut-
ters and the magnificent
canyons that thread their
way through the mountains
and into the city*
But Denver is much like
Salt Lake City -- only more
so* Salt Lake was high (up
that is), but Denver is
higher. A full mile, they
tell us, and sometimes the
air .seems so thin wed
swear it was -two. Salt
Lake City has mountains all
around* In Denver they
start practically in our
backyard Salt Lake had
