New in the Denver Post today: nothing!

E-mail blasts are a great way to reach a lot of people quickly -- but it's important that they actually include some content. A message sent out earlier today to folks who signed up for entertainment updates from the Denver Post shows why. As you can see by the image above, the note proudly declares, "No new stories today!"

Don't judge. You can't expect them to come up with fresh stories every day...
