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

Ever since news broke last fall that Senator Larry Craig had not limited his wide-stance activities to the Minneapolis airport, but had also tried his luck at Denver International Airport, an intrepid Demver correspondent -- we'll call him Mr. seX -- has been scouting the bathrooms at DIA looking for a newsflush.

Here's the account he filed today:

Reporting live from stall number 3 in the men's restroom on the B concourse at DIA. I am observing a pair of black men's dress shoes in the stall next to me...and the shoe is lightly tapping. Upon further observation, underneath the sole of the shoe I see what appears to be potato product. And then I think to myself..."What state is best known for potatoes?" The answer, of course, is Idaho.

Senator Craig must have been at an Idaho potato processing plant (making a political speech) before catching a plane to Denver. I am now exiting the stall and READY to make a citizen's arrest! Whoooosh...(I hear the toilet flush, zipper go up, door unlatch, and the stall door slowly opens.) You're going to be sorry, Larry!

Oops... It's a line cook from "The Great Steak Escape" who obviously runs the deep fryer. No other activity to report.

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.
