-CHICAGO (AP) – President-elect Barack Obama’s choice to be interior secretary is vowing to be a “strong voice” for the west, and for the nation. Obama said there’s been too much emphasis on “big-time lobbyists in Washington” instead of “what’s good for the American people.” He says that will change under Ken Salazar. Congratulations, Kenny!

Rejoined after a five year hiatus. As one of the original members, I was entitled to a discounted $99 a year membership fee until I allowed my membership to expire. Only recently have I realized that I am entitled to a $200 discount for my association with Wonderful Machine. I am no cheap skate about advertising, but $100 sure sounds better than $300 during this post-Bush economy. “Thank you, Wonderful Machine and Altpick.”

-Traveled to Chicago, Illinois to create an ad campaign for Allosource. When a Chicago meteorologist remarks, “this will be the coldest day of the year,” you know it is going to be a cold day.

The Denver Egotist Manifesto
In order to promote creative growth in Denver, one must admit the city is conceptually stunted. It’s not on the tip of any tongues, and for good reason. Safe solutions, droll concepts. It is our belief, as creative participants in this city, that the opportunity for change lies at our feet and that it can happen by challenging one another, by holding each other accountable for our work, and by hiring and promoting local talent. This is our attempt to foster big ideas and radical thinking on a local level. To remind us all why we love this job. This is The Denver Egotist, a means to an end.

Thank you, The Denver Egotist, I am honored!
