Anti-tax crusader Douglas Bruce has long been an object of intense study here at Westword. This morning, media columnist Michael Roberts compiled this great list of notes we've taken on Bruce in his natural habitat. But it was the act that occasioned this list, the kicking of Rocky Mountain News photographer Javier Manzano for photographing the new legislator during yesterday's opening prayer at the statehouse, that has occasioned this blog posting. Mr. Bruce, we happily honor you with this week's prestigious Shmuck of the Week award. Since there is no limit on how many times a person can win, we hope to see Mr. Bruce back again throughout the course of this new legislative session.
