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

Phillip Ray Greaves II, the 47-year-old Pueblo author of The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child-lover's Code of Conduct, sent a copy to the wrong person: a Florida sheriff's deputy, a sale that will have him in a Florida court today on charges of distributing obscene material.

Reports of the bust prompted this comment from solar satellite:

Polk County would do better to make Greaves Sheriff. The place is in a time-warp, lost sometime between Reconstruction and the Civil Rights Era. The influx of new blood (of stray Disneyworld tourists) seems not to have mitigated the kind of severe inbreeding of which Judd is an excrescence.

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.
