The picturesque city of Boulder once again placed first in American Living's annual tally of the nation's 20 best places to raise abducted children, taking top honors for the third consecutive year.

"With plenty of cultural amenities, unsurpassed recreational opportunities, and an inviting lack of neighborhood watch groups, Boulder is the ideal place to raise a captive family," the magazine's editors wrote in a two-page feature spread. "The city is large enough for new residents to quickly blend in, yet small enough that one could easily track down a child who manages to escape from the attic crawlspace in the dead of night." (July 17, 2010)

Number 5: "Ravens-Broncos Matchup Rekindles Smoldering Resentment From Baltimore-Denver War Of 1877"

"Despite the fact that over a century has since passed, a great deal of bad blood remains between these rival groups," said Regis University historian Dr. Kyle Larson, explaining that the full-scale war erupted after Denver officials sent an army of 40,000 soldiers into Baltimore to quell violent protests of Colorado's admittance to the Union. "The horrors of those barbaric times are forever woven into the history of these states." (January 12, 2013)

I would be even more bummed out about it if they still had the AV Crossword in the back.

Here's Weedword's -- Voice Media's -- chance to scoop-up some low hanging fruit and JV with The Onion to continue their Denver print edition ... perhaps as an insert to WW's anemic print edition.

Or does WW want the comedic market all to itself?

It's understandable. More and more people read news (and satirical news) online nowadays. Maybe they can use the saved costs to produce more online material.

The Onion started out as a free-weekly in Madison Wisconsin. Back then it was black and white, but it was still awesome. They have expanded so much, and it's amazing how big they are now... but they lost much of their writing staff recently when management told them they all had to move from New York to Chicago. It will be interesting to see if they can stay at the top of their game through this.
