Dean Singleton's cow-ardice

Dean Singleton, image protector.

In this morning's Denver feature on National Public Radio, reporter Jeff Brady purports to share with listeners the five things visitors to the Democratic National Convention should do while here but probably won't. His first item, though, is actually something DNC attendees should do but can't -- and that's witness a cattle drive through the streets of Denver. And one of the people held responsible for this sad state of affairs is one Dean Singleton, head of MediaNews Group and publisher of the Denver Post.
