A the eyes, ears and Blackberry's of a nation focus on Election Night, I thought it prudent to take a look at some of the hot-button issues being decided by the people. Actually, just one hot-button issue.
So we turn our attention to the "Centennial State," Colorado....(from ABC yest.)
When Denver voters head to the polls tomorrow, they won't just have a chance to vote for a new senator or representatives. They'll have a chance to cast their ballots for E.T.
On the ballot this year is an initiative that would charge the city with creating a seven-person panel to study unidentified flying objects and extraterrestrial life.
Jeff Peckman, the Denver entrepreneur spearheading the campaign, said Denver's Initiative 300 would establish an Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission responsible for collecting and sharing evidence that extraterrestrials are visiting Earth and for assessing the risks and benefits of making contact with those aliens."The reason it's important is that this needs to start somewhere. It's not starting anywhere, at the federal level or state level or any other level of government," Peckman said. "In this country we believe this could very well be a citizen's task."
I wonder if the creation of such a commission would be in direct conflict with any state or federal immigration laws. Let's leave that for whatever misguided legal challenges seek to derail this worthy initiative. For now, forward, Colorado! Shine on you crazy diamond.
