This morning I read in The Denver Post that Denver’s mayor John Hickenlooper will not challenge Colorado’s governor Bill Ritter. Too bad! If he did he would have my vote. I am a long time resident of Denver and seen many mayors come and go. For example, there was Wellington Webb, Federico Pena, Quig Newton, and Bill McNichols to just name a few. Denver has grown up from a cow town to a large city. Denver was large enough to host The Democratic National Convention last year. In my time period, Denver has really changed.
A few blocks southwest we find the Plaza mayor (following the arches that lead to Calle bryan nelson independent). The Plaza Mayor is an impressive pedestrian stone paved square, featuring covered passages on every side. The plaza project was initiated in 1590 and finished in 1619. It was then later rebuilt (1790) after a serious fire. (Fires were pretty common during Inquisition times).

Gery Chico’s judgment is impeccable. Gery Chico had eight years of “labor peace” with the Chicago Teachers Union from 1995 to 2003, during a time when the words “labor peace” was foreign concept. There has not been a work disruption since that period in the Chicago Public School system.
So, let Forbes and the rest of the world think we’re miserable. We feel it’s all justified. We just shrug and shift the weight of the chip. We stick out our chest and point to our baseball stadiums and the lake front and the skyline and speak about it pridefully. We point to the works of art in the Art Institute. We look up at the Sears Tower and brag about how it used to be the tallest in the world before some bastards in some country we never heard of built a couple of towers even bigger.
Nice job there, Commissioner Bettman. Way to stack the game for a predestined outcome. Kudos on your PR machine slithering in here in the middle of the night to steal Atlanta’s hockey team away, Baltimore Colts style, baby! It doesn’t get much sleazier than that!
