“Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes…”

He’s still singing. I’m still writing. After a good year and a half of dormancy (in blog posting here, not my own dormancy by any means), the New and Improved Denver by the Slice is toasting again!

Ballots were mailed a few weeks ago and they have to be in by Tuesday, June 26, no later than 7:00 p.m. If you live Downtown, all you need do is walk your ballot over to the Webb Building at 15th and Court. Denver by the Slice always votes,…
