We were going to stop taking shots at Wendy Aiello because she invited us to sit at her table at the Denver Press Club’s annual Gridiron Show (and because Walt kept eyeing us with a “I’m-not-afraid-to-stick-this-fork-in-your-throat” look), but then the entertainment was so godawful* we decided she was fair game anyway.

So imagine our glee when Wendy appeared in this morning’s Bill Husted column. Unfortunately, there really wasn’t much to make fun of. Successful restaurant launch. Placido Domingo. Big write-up in the News. No “PR Princess” comments. But after being a little optimistic with our over/under on Wendy Aiello mentions for both Bill and Penny Parker, we’re taking any mentions we can find. And we’re still gunning for you, Wendy (but please don’t mention that to Walt).

*We enjoyed Andrew Hudson’s band with that skinny lead singer guy

Aldo Svaldi at the Denver Post gets some serious reporter street cred for writing an article about his paper’s circulation drop that has resulted in a VP from his publisher’s company writing a scathing letter to the editor. And how badly does the Post not want you to read Aldo’s piece? Click the link to the original story in the VP’s rebuttal and see where it takes you. Not to Aldo’s piece. And good luck finding the original story linked anywhere else on the Post’s Web site. Mark Harden at the DBJ and Fitz & Jen at Editor & Publisher have more details.
