Oh, how refreshing. Spring has finally come to Denver, flowers are daring to bloom and trees to leaf out. And the looney tunes are coming outdoors, pale and shriveled from hunkering in their basements all winter, and squinting in the sunshine.
Exhibit A: the guy who says he *seriously* wants the Denver City Council to create – and I have to give this title the placement it deserves:
The Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission
Yep. ET, phone City Hall. The commission would be tasked with ”dealing with issues related to the presence of extraterrestrial beings on Earth.” Like, maybe, dating.
As required by law when the fine citizens of the City & County of Denver are proposing initiatives, City staffers held a public meeting with this visionary activist yesterday. Some interested folks turned up, including a few young folks wearing tinfoil hats. Bless their hearts.
If City Council doesn’t enact this initiative into law, and its sponsor gets enough signatures on petitions for it, it will go onto the ballot at the next election.
Think about it: if it passes, and the commission is created, the commission will need at least one staffer. What a job that would be. Although I’m not sure it would be a terrific career track for anyone.
The sponsor of this lunacy? Is 54 years old, divorced, has no children, and lives with his parents. As profiled in the Rocky Mountain News:
Occupation: Owns an Internet business, which is marketing a new technology that reduces stress “because it reduces the chaos of electromagnetic fields,” he said.
Education: A year at Maharishi University of Management in Iowa.
Number of times abducted: 0
Ever seen an alien? No. But “I believe they do exist,” he said. “I’ve seen very hard evidence.”
