The nation's economy may still be in the crapper, but our corporate masters let us take Labor Day off anyway -- and bless them for it. The Latest Word will be back tomorrow with the usual gusher of content. In the meantime, those of you who are also enjoying a break from your job can sit back and enjoy listening to Tennessee Ernie Ford sing "16 Tons," the ultimate lament about work without end, Amen. See you again tomorrow.
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.
