Thanksgiving is a day of rest for The Latest Word. We hope you and yours enjoy the day -- and for those who are doing the holiday thing solo, here's a video that'll make you appreciate doing things like reading The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, whose scenes of graphic violence are "much better than watching Uncle Terry ruin Grandma's bone china in a whiskey-fueled rage." Word to your mother -- and the rest of your family! See the video below.
KEEP WESTWORD FREE...
Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Michael Roberts has written for Westword since October 1990, serving stints as music editor and media columnist. He currently covers everything from breaking news and politics to sports and stories that defy categorization.
