It was just a week ago that Denver voters overwhelmingly rejected Initiative 300, which would have required the city to create a government-sponsored commission to study extraterrestrials -- many officials and voters feared such a commission would make Denver "a laughingstock." To those people, we say, where is your God now? And then we invite them to examine this video that appeared on YouTube this morning. Or should we say... materialized? Because, you know, it's a UFO.
That, or it's possibly maybe a blimp, but look how it disappears toward the end. Blimps don't just disappear, friends. At least, they don't unless they're blimps with aliens in them!
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.
