We actually love certain kinds of graffiti around here. Witness our November posts featuring a graffiti-scene vet's picks for the best Denver street art. But unimaginatively scrawled Swastikas and assorted Nazi-centric hate messages belong in the Schmuck of the Week category -- and if Douglas Count ... More >>
We love it when folks comment on older posts -- especially when their takes are timely. A case in point: A March 2012 item in which Patricia Calhoun deemed state Senator Tim Neville the Schmuck of the Week for likening the Obama administration to Nazis. One reader thinks this comparison suddenly mak ... More >>

Denver blog posts stand up for what's right. Big Media's Jason Salzman on Cory Gardner raising the specter of Nazi Germany in discussing the debt ceiling. Coyote Gulch: Bad snow-pack news -- it's only 63 percent of the average. Plants & Animals Denver: Rub-a-dub-dub, vegan soap in your tub.

A parade of shmucks sounded off on the steps of the State Capitol Monday, responding to a pro-choice rally there earlier in the day and comparing the Obama administration's support of subsidized contraception to an array of horrors.

Now we have the vast internets and enough space to choose whatever we desire -- in your face, Nazi ... More >>
Another look at William Breathes (that's actually editor Patty Calhoun's desk).For the last few weeks I've been curious as to how The Daily Show would use the three-plus hours of footage they got with me last month. I was paraded around the Westword office in a gas mask bong, got to burn a b ... More >>
Heil Highlands? I must have driven past this old set of row-homes just off Speer Boulevard in the Highland neighborhood a thousand times before I happened to notice the odd little symbol embedded in the brickwork: a swastika. I knew the upper Highlands was getting more white, but not this white! ... More >>
Bob Schaffer speaking in Montrose earlier this week. Republican senatorial candidate Bob Schaffer needs a game-changer right now, given the size of Democratic opponent Mark Udall's lead in most polls. So why not imply that liberals wanted to mollycoddle the Third Reich? That's the apparent strateg ... More >>
