The Big O

The Oprah Winfrey for Queen campaign has just received another boost.

In the May 25 edition of Westword's Off Limits column, readers were introduced to Aurora's Nathanial Trotter, whose goal in life involves putting the royal Ms. Winfrey on a throne, where she belongs. Trotter, who outlines his plan on a genially loopy website, is now receiving even more publicity, albeit from a predictable source: Channel 4, which recently debuted as Oprah's Denver affiliate. Nevertheless, the station's story gives locals a chance to learn even more about a man with a suitably grand obsession. -- Michael Roberts
