Meet a Westsider:
Ron Lee

Profession/Occupation... Radio news and audio/visual guy for Colorado College.

What I like most about the Westside is... the diversity and funky housing.

If I could change anything about the Westside, it would be... to secede from Colorado Springs (we have nothing in common with Briargate and the east side.)

A good movie Iíve seen recently is... ďThe Wrestler.Ē

I'd like to discover... some real culture without driving to Denver.

If I could meet someone famous, Iíd like to meet... Abe Lincoln. Iím related to his crazy wife, Mary Todd, through my motherís side.

The next time I travel, Iím going to... take a road trip to the West Coast.

My favorite childhood memory is... the summer block parties in our East Denver neighborhood.

My favorite spring pastime is... enjoying the warmer weather and the start of baseball.

Something good Iíve read is.. anything biographical.

My pet peeve is... the inept city government. Look at Fort Collins, Boulder and Denver as well-run cities. We get what we pay for! (Thanks, Doug.)

If I didnít have to work for a year I would... go to the Monterey and Newport Jazz festivals and to the Chicago Blues and New Orleans Jazz and Heritage festivals also.
