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

Last week, we wrote about the possibility of Denver Post columnist Mike Littwin being moved to the op-ed pages from his high-profile page-two perch.

Our item prompted a comment from a reader who thinks Littwin's less easily pigeonholed than most people acknowledge.

Bill Kostka writes:

Please do not move Littwin or shorten his columns. It took me a while to really believe in the balance of Littwin's views. I cherish reading his column now every day, whether I read anything else in the Post or not -- and I do read it all. He's a rare find who looks like a refugee from Haight-Asbury and writes with care giving in depth perspective to the most important news of the day. You can't classify him as a liberal or conservative, only as one hell of a good observer and commentator.

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.
