Mile High

Work brings me to Denver this evening. I find myself on the eleventh floor of a downtown hotel, having just returned from a night on the town. Crowds gathered, waiting to get into area restaurants. Musicians playing their instruments on sidewalks for cash. Horses and buggies clip-clopping up and down the downtown Mall area. Great food. Beer. Wonderful weather. Snow-capped peaks of the Rockies shrouded in darkness off to the west. Vagrants.

A memorable night.

Quote Of The Day

U.S. Out of New Orleans!
Forgotten but not gone, mad mama Cindy Sheehan is still ranting away over at the Fluffington Toast in hope of defying Andy Warhol and scoring a 16th minute of fame. In her latest post, she declares, "George Bush needs to stop talking, admit the mistakes of his all around failed administration, pull our troops out of occupied New Orleans and Iraq, and excuse his self [sic] from power."

Mrs. Sheehan, originally a sympathetic figure, is now merely a pathetic one, and we're inclined to ignore her totally, except that we keep remembering all those Angry Left types who, a few short weeks ago, were declaring that she had "absolute moral authority" and was going to transform American politics. If thinking about that doesn't give you a good, deep, soul-cleansing laugh, nothing will.
