Update II: Those who know him will know that the D-blog is not actually doing much better, especially today. Today Denver Mayor Michael Hancock mandated that masks be worn outdoors, "for the foreseeable future." Another order limits gatherings of "unrelated" people to five. Read the story. Pure evil from the Post, but just another example of how the media, elected officials, public health officials and your average street Stasi* all now share two motive forces: malice, and recklessness amounting to malice.
*Last week I was walking a dog at Berkeley Lake across Sheridan from Lakeside Amusement Park. Guy coming toward me on the path stops 100 feet away and pulls up his stupid bandana. Then as he comes closer he gets off the path and goes about 30 feet up a little rise and stands there. I walk by and give a polite wave (as is customary in Colorado) and he gives a little mocking wave back and says, "Fuuuuuuck you, man." No, I wasn't wearing a mask.
Update III: Never watched any of this guy's videos before, haven't seen this one yet, but here's what he's gonna say: Covid conforms to the Gompertz Curve; therefore, none of the evil totalitarian shit rammed down everyone's throat (with all too many swallowing eagerly, of course) has done or will do a lick of good. Researchers agree that I'm clairvoyant.

It is absolutely critical that we elect Hillary Clinton as our next president and Democrats down the ticket. . . . [Nice sentence.]
That's why I'm personally coming to you, John, and asking a simple question: have you done everything you can to help Hillary win?"
I . . . have not.

Isn't this a cool truck?
Hard to read, but it says, "Old Pickup That Died!!?? Not For Sale!!!!" Love this truck.
The D-blog uses it to haul grain to the frou-frou little Farmers Market at 38th and Federal.
Yes, do. The D-a-W is very into the Vegan Prosperity Gospel and, as you can see, this little beauty goes far toward making that gospel manifest in her daily life. We haul grain in it, too.
And here (best for last), is the D-blog's own day-to-day car. A little pricey for a late-model used, but as I've discovered, love really is what makes a Subaru a Subaru:

Tourist (passing by): Pardon me?
Elephant: Oh, I'm sorry. Just talking to myself.
Elephant: It's just that . . .
Elephant: Well, see, I have this new camera . . .
Tourist: That's a nice one.
Elephant: Yeah, it is. Cost me 900 bucks.
Elephant: Yeah. Anyway, I've been taking a lot of pictures--you know, the savanna, some of my elephant buddies, those weird trees . . .
Elephant: Gesundheit. Anyhow, like I said, I've been taking lots of pictures, but what I haven't done is try to get a good shot of a human. And when I saw you walking by . . .
Elephant: You won't laugh?
Tourist: Of course not.
Elephant: Well, I thought, "There goes quite a handsome fellow."
Tourist (embarrassed, looking at the ground): Aw, crap.
Elephant: No, I did. I thought, "There goes quite a handsome fellow. I wonder if he would do me the honor of posing for my first portrait of a human?" Wow, I can't believe I even said anything . . .
Tourist: No, no, it's fine . . .
Elephant (shyly): Well, now that we've been talking some, I wonder . . .
Tourist (expansive): If you can take my picture? Why, sure!
Elephant: Really? You don't mind!
Tourist: Of course not! Hell (laughs), I won't even charge you!
Elephant: Oh, that's really so kind of you . . .
Tourist: Not at all! Kinda tickles me to have my picture taken by an elephant.
Elephant (excitedly): Okay! Here we go! Now, just look off in the distance, maybe like you're hearing the stampeding of a mighty herd . . .
Tourist: Like this? (strikes pose).
Elephant: That's it! Hold it . . . and . . . got it!
Tourist: Get a good one?
Elephant (looks at viewfinder): It's perfect! Want to see?
Tourist: Sure. (Looks): Say, that's not bad. . .
Elephant: Oh, thank you.
Tourist (after a moment, slightly awkwardly): Well, okay, guess I'll be moving along. Nice talking
Elephant: I'm terribly sorry, but can I ask one more favor?
Tourist (hoping the elephant will call him handsome again): Sure, just ask!
Elephant: Well, I've been trying to figure out the timer on this thing, and I think I've finally got it.
Elephant: So I wonder if we could . . .
Tourist: Get a picture together? Absolutely!
Elephant: Oh, thank you so much . . .
Tourist: Hey, no problemo.
Elephant: Okay. Now I've got the camera on my tripod, I'll just set it for what? Five seconds? Okay, five seconds. That's plenty of time for me to run around and get next to you, right?
Tourist: You're the photographer.
Elephant: 'Kay, here we go . . . um . . .
Elephant: Well, when we're together for the shot . . . can I put my right front leg around your shoulders, you know, like we're real old friends?
Tourist (smug at the attention this elephant is paying him): Why, sure you can!
Elephant: Oh, that's wonderful. Okay, let's do it! Timer tripped . . . and here I come!
Drudge: Elephant tramples tourist to death trying to take photo...
Update: Having actually read the story now, I see that the tourist was Italian. The d-blog thought about rewriting this with a bunch of "zees" and "zos" or whatever Italians do (don't worry, I'd have researched it) thrown in, but screw it. Just read aloud and insert your own Italian accent, okay? (That's for the tourist; I don't know what accent to read the elephant in.)

Michael Chavez was murdered near the 1600 block of Bryant Street; at this writing, no one has been arrested or charged for the crime.They caught somebody, of course. The trial is next month, and after I testify I'll tell the story here. There will be pictures.
Now, there's been another fatal shooting not far away -- near 26th and Bryant, according to the Denver coroner's office, which has identified the victim as Jeremy Wilson, age 23. The office says ID was confirmed by fingerprints, suggesting that Wilson's info was already in the system.
What happened? We've got the basics below.
At around 10:53 p.m., notes the Denver Police Department, officers responded to an address in the vicinity -- the DPD refers to it as the 2600 block of West 27th Avenue -- after receiving a shots-fired call.
There, they found Wilson, who was suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. He was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
