On Thursday, Hillary Clinton delivered a fundraising speech at the private residence of Colorado’s governor, John Hickenlooper, in Denver’s Park Hill neighborhood. The venue, a tent pitched on Hickenlooper’s lawn, was positioned close to the nearest street, which would have (theoretically) enabled non-guests to listen in on Clinton’s remarks. According to an on-scene reporter, however, the Democratic frontrunner’s campaign used a “static noise machine”—i.e., a larger speaker blasting static interference—to prevent such eavesdropping:
A piece of art inspired by the minor scandal currently unfolding over a Denver municipal building, in the style of the pieces of art that inspired the scandal, might look something like this: a painting of a piece of art hanging on a wall, and the art is just the word “ART” painted in red on a canvas, and a policeman is trying to take the art down, and the artist is trying to stop him.

Lachlan Connors was playing lacrosse in the sixth grade when he hit his head on the ground and sustained a concussion. Although he began to display "concerning behaviors," he was allowed to return to sports.

Loud noises and running cops figure into every paranoid stoner's nightmares, but Denver got both in real life yesterday at their packed pot celebration.

After an area weirdo sent Denver's Fox-affiliated TV station KDVR footage of UFO sightings over the Mile High City, the channel's news team decided to send out one of its photojournalists to the scene in an attempt to "verify" the video (i.e. debunk it and move on).
According to Denver police, shots fired at the Denver field offices for the Obama campaign yesterday resulted in mild property damage but no injuries to the workers inside at the time.
