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

Today's Denver Post includes an article topped by the banner "Businesses Like Their Tax Breaks" -- a revelation that few observers would have guessed (unless they were awake and paying attention). Here are ten other similarly shocking headlines:

10. "Most Men Find Angelina Jolie Attractive"

9. "Rush Limbaugh Not Expected to Vote for Obama in 2012"

8. "Getting Punched in the Face Hurts"

7. "There's a Moon in the Sky Called the Moon" (Thanks, B-52's.)

6. "Keith Olbermann Probably Will Vote for Obama in 2012"

5. "Beyoncé Also Thought To Be Quite Good Looking"

4. "Getting Kicked in the Groin Really Hurts"

3. "It's Fun to Spend Money"

2. "Jon and Kate No Longer Sleeping Together"

1. "Stoners Like Weed"

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.
