In Denver Times: let's put on a newspaper!
Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.
Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.
If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.
Former employees of the now-defunct Rocky Mountain News newspaper are making you an offer (indenvertimes.com):
You pledge to pay as little as $4.99 a month, and if we reach our goal of 50,000 pledges by April 23 we will go live with our site to revive a tradition of distinguished reporting and editing with 21st-century electronic delivery.
Now, it would be easy for you to laugh at them and say, "sorry, but we don't like newpaper reporters in these parts because they constantly lie and instead of doing things like following the money they try to cover up the trail. While that might be less true of reporters for outlets situated between completely corrupt small town papers and the completely, absolutely corrupt national MSM, it probably wouldn't be difficult to find those who've signed on offering biased reportage. Sorry. Hey, I like Denver, it's a great city. But, sorry. However, I hear that McDonalds is hiring." However, saying that would be cruel, so don't do it. Instead, let someone else send them money.
