The red herring is the best logical fallacy -- are they catching on to you? Throw something unrelated out there to distract them and act like it's germane to the topic in some way. Not only is it an effective argument tool, it can also be hilariously random -- and so because it's Wednesday, the day that we bring you the best of our weird internetz world in a compendium of images loosely related to whatever topic we happen to come up with, here you go: eleven images of, uh, this blog is a penguin.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
