17 years ago by Jonathan Shikes
He's your p-a-l: Locals don't usually expect articles on newsy topics to show up on the cover of 5280, which describes itself as "Denver's Mile-High Magazine"; the publication generally uses its front page to tout not-what-you'd-call-hard-hitting pieces about, for instance, the city's top doctors.
