The Donkey's Ass
Anti-abortion protesters rallied outside the Pepsi Center yesterday, giving Denver just a taste of what's going to hit this town next August, when the Democratic National Convention convenes here.
The city got another preview earlier this month, when CEDIA (Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association) filled the Colorado Convention Center with over 30,000 consumer-electronic junkies.
"Is this the biggest convention to come to town?" one tourist asked a Denver Police Department officer overseeing the scene.
"Just wait until next year, and the Democratic National Convention," the cop replied.
And then, in an aside to another cop, he added this: "That's going to be a real pain in the ass." --Patricia Calhoun
