I Spy

Parody on Parade? Actually, it’s just another fucked up day in Colorado Springs, where the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo Parade meandered down the main drag to the horror/delight of Noel Black who snapped this pic from Newspeak headquarters. Since moving into his new downtown office earlier this year, Black's most reliable source for breaking news -- like his scoop about Grace Church Rev. Don Armstrong’s addiction to illegal parking and Frappachinos -- has been his front window. No fair! All we ever get outside the Westword office is weeping drag queens and bums shrieking Whitney Houston refrains.-- Jared Jacang Maher
