Westword readers praise Prayer One and comment on John Hickenlooper taking a shower
Jeff Puckett is the real deal. He also has a great wife! He makes the goofy Christian community (especially the leadership) look good. They need all the help they can get. Like the bumpersticker reads: "Jesus, save me from your followers!"
The articles Westword does on faith are so objective and thoughtful. Keep up the good work.
I wonder if the occupants of Prayer One have ever seen any black helicopters? This sounds like another one for the conspiracy theorists.
I loved Melanie Asmar's story about the helicopter! It was very inspirational. Just one question: How do I get an invitation from Jeff Puckett?
Thank you for Joel Warner's story on Peter McGraw. What do I find funny? The idea of a professor doing standup comedy. (I also think sweater vests are funny.)
Here's my favorite joke: Horse sits down at a bar. "Why the long face?" the bartender asks.
I heard on Fox News how $700,000 in stimulus funds went to a university study of what's funny. This sounds like another Obama boondoggle. University of Colorado students paid to watch Hot Tub Time Machine? I don't find that at all humorous.

Hats off to the 16th Street Mall crew! The cows and the pianos have been a wonderful and inspired attraction in Denver. Now, when do we get rid of the bike maniacs and trashmongers, beggars and homeless on the very same blocks? You still can't make a purse out of a pig's ear. They say that the road to hell is paved with good intentions...so are we there yet?
Sounding more and more like the bloom is coming off the rose for living downtown. Smelly, noisy vehicles. Smelly, noisy, freaky and dangerous people. Puddles o' puke to watch for. Extortionist parking rates and, even with all the restaurants there, for the most part similar cuisines that are available in other parts of the city without the aforementioned hassles.
While John Hickenlooper is taking a shower, the Republican Party is taking a bath with Dan Maes. The only one who might come out clean? Tom Tancredo.
I am concerned that Tom Tancredo is getting a free pass on issues and how destructive his third-party run is for Colorado. Representative Tancredo has made a career out of being the champion against illegal immigration, yet his third-party run will certainly destroy any chance of reform in Colorado, ensuring a John Hickenlooper win and destroying any chance of reining in illegal immigration and its destructive impacts on the state's economy.
