Whoa boy. @RideRTD has just emailed an announcement saying it is going to require the press to fill out a form before shooting video at places like Union Station. This comes in the wake of news that Union Station has become a hot zone for crime.

Denver Post photographer @hrichardson is a treasure. She made this incredible photo of Willie the horse during the #MarshallFire and now she brings us Willie's story. You've gotta read this: dpo.st/3nqeD17

Mississippi’s Senators are passing a (unlit) fat doobie around the chamber to understand how big a “marijuana joint” is. Blackwell says 3.5 grams is like 2ish joints a day. Tate Reeves says it’s 11 joints.

Along with drastically fixing working conditions for employees, maybe King Soopers and Safeway could also -- just spitballing here -- make their stores not the epicenter of all human sadness?
NEW: King Soopers union says 8,400 workers at 78 stores in metro Denver, Boulder and Colorado Springs will walk off the job beginning at 5 a.m. Wednesday dpo.st/3n6J8Jf via @JudithKohler

Our Safeway kept getting carts stolen, so they just didn't have carts *for a year* at a store that serves many elderly/disabled customers. Everyone trying to shop with armfuls of groceries was just too grim. And if you're a woman, just wait 'til you get to the parking lot!

The @denverpost was also denied after requesting the same thing. Jeremy makes important points here about public records and how Colorado law makes it exceedingly easy for the government to keep them secret by claiming they're part of an investigation.
I filed a request with the @BldrCOSheriff to get a list of all the times deputies have been dispatched to the Twelve Tribes property over several years. Request was denied on basis of an active investigation and what I requested is part of investigation. 1/

NEW: Denver police received a tip a year ago that the Denver/Lakewood gunman might commit a terrorist attack. The tipster said he hoped to prevent violence. DPD investigated, but say they didn't have enough evidence to arrest or monitor him. More: denverpost.com/2022/01/04/de…

Only place downtown I can find the good dumpling sauce (the spicy kind, Wei-Chuan). And will second the comment about the owners' disposition (the good kind, friendly). @byBethRankin knows what's up

“The cultural and media representations of drinking as a positive, enjoyable, glamorous part of society, we can’t ignore or try and suppress that, but yes, it’s trying to bring that into a bit more balance."
