The World According to DP

As I guided my family through the concourse at Coors Field last fall for our final ballgame of the season I was offered a discounted trial delivery of the Denver Post. I gave it serious thought, dismissed the vendor with "I'll think it over and come back later," then decided $10 a month was too steep. Weeks later a different vendor made a different offer at the door to our local King Soopers: "Two months free! After that you can cancel or go to Sunday only or ..."

I've enjoyed the sports coverage but I take the front page with equal measures of amusement and disgust as the lead story is clearly selected to shape the opinions of the least informed. The general theme is to give sympathetic treatment of a generic societal "failing" with a hint or two of how government might "fix" it. I've decided the ploy is so predictable it could become a regular feature and thus, a new category.
