    1. Oh, "Warm Cookies" is awesome!  I've been back very infrequently since the pandemic began, but I was a regular before that. I miss that crew…

    2. As of last night, Denver reported Participation Count: 33,633   % of Total: 7.42% (of active registrations). 

      In 2019, the same number of days from the end of the election, there had been 46,896 votes. the final Monday & Tuesday, abuot 104,000 votes were cast, taking the overall voting to 186,402 … 45.9% of active registrations

      1. An open Mayoral race with 17 candidates is going to cause a lot of headaches for voters that the 2019 situation did not.  

        What has 4 thumbs and is having this issue?  THIS GUY!!!  AND HIS WIFE!!!

        1. I hope this leads to a couple of election reforms:

          1)  Ranked choice voting — take the angst out of guessing who has the best chance of making a 2 person runoff.

          2) Lower caps on Fair Election Fund distributions.  If you are capable of  raising a million dollars for mayor, you probably don't need a half million more.

          1. Yes, but ranked choice voting only works if people know about the candidates. One of the big problems in this race is so many unknown names.

            Raise the number signature to get on the ballot – significantly.

        2. This can hardly end well.

          Given turnout, I’m having a hard time understanding how Andy Rougeot, being the only Republican candidate, wouldn’t come out of this first round as the “surprise” top-line winner? 

          He won’t win the runoff, however, because Denver.

          So, I imagine that the second place ballot all-other (i.e., Democratic) winner in this scrum, will be the odds-on favorite next mayor of Denver?

  1. Todays' quote evokes memories of a revelation I had back in the 1990s, when I spent a few years engaged in "discussions" with the OilyBoyz.

    The suspension of disbelief is fundamentally necessary to working in any toxic, destructive industry. It helps one to rationalize so many things that are demonstrably false.
