Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Despite what Craig Ferguson says, reading Denver blogs won't make you poop funny.

Colorado Pols sees plenty of signs that John Hickenlooper will soon launch a bid for Colorado's governorship -- including Republican boss Dick Wadhams dubbing him "Hickenritter." Which is not nearly as funny a name as "Dick Wadhams."

Mile High Hockey's David Driscoll-Carignan thinks tonight's Avalanche game against the Calgary Flames will offer "a perfect gut check for our heroes in the road white uniprons." Hope the checkout goes well.

The Peoples Press Collective announces that it's time to take Colorado's political temperature with a new survey. Can you put the thermometer under our tongue instead of... somewhere else?

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.
