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

It's your Monday edition of Denver Blogs, with a trio of interesting blog posts from around town. First up, a crack dealer selling to the people he was hired to protect:

Jared Jacang Maher of Face the State (and formerly Westword) brings us this story of Lee Wright, a security guard for the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless who was allegedly selling crack to patients in the rehab program. Talk about job security.

On a lighter note, the Mile High Mamas' Amber Johnson blogs today on realizing your true potential in 2011.

Sometimes, no news is news, especially in the will-they or won't-they situations of pro athletes resigning. Predominantly Orange has the story about Champ Bailey holding back on whether he'll be a Bronco next season.

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.
