Let's take it to the scales.

Weighing the leader in the Denver newspaper war

Upon my arrival at Westword's offices this morning, I picked up our copies of the Rocky Mountain News and the Denver Post and was surprised -- and pleased -- by how heavy they felt. But how bulky were they really? To find out, I toted them to our nearby postal scale and discovered that the Rocky checked in at a robust 1 pound, 13.2 ounces, while the Post registered 1 pound, 13.4 ounces. So for today, anyway, the Post wins the battle of the weighty issues. And in today's newspaper business, the size of each paper is arguably the weightiest issue of all. -- Michael Roberts
