96: Down on Downtown, No. 18, and Altweeklies Edition

Peyton Knows T-Shirt on Denver DiatribeThis week, Vanessa, Ron, Joel, and Josh descend down the rabbit hole of Denver news fresh off a Diatribe photo shoot with Mark Manger.

First, we review the most recent development in a Greeley school district’s ban of apparel bearing the No. 18 (they’re lookin’ at you, Manning), the possible migration of Nederland’s famous Frozen Dead Guy, and the (temporary?) failure of the Secretary of State’s new mobile voter-registration system.

We move along to critiquing the “state of downtown” in light of Downtown Denver’s second-annual report of the same name, then weigh in on the latest ownership change at Westword, the city’s 35-year-young “alternative” newsweekly—if there is such a thing as an “alternative newsweekly” anymore.

Sure, we might get a tad wonky talking about that last topic, but there’s plenty of “wacky” up front to lighten the load.

MUSIC BREAK: Jeff Finlin’s “My Maybeline” from his latest album, Live Songs for the Ice Age, available for purchase at JeffFinlin.com.
