Who Had the Worst Week?

  • The coronation of King Charles III takes place tomorrow, but not all Englanders are feeling the spirit. What the New York Post described as “cocky pranksters” mowed a giant penis into the grass of the famous grounds of the Royal Crescent in Bath, where one of the coronation parties is scheduled to take place.
  • If you have any spare wolves, the State of Colorado would like to talk to you. Plans to re-introduce the predators by the end of 2023 have hit a snag because neighboring states aren’t very interested in supplying them. They fear the wolves will reproduce in Colorado and then head back to their states.
  • Two weeks ago, I included PERA Executive Director Ron Baker on this list because he had been placed on administrative leave and no one would explain why. Now he has been fired, and still no one is saying why.
  • Actor Jamie Foxx has been hospitalized for three weeks for unknown reasons, and reports are that he is not getting better.
  • Stop me if you have heard this before: The EPA says Denver‘s air quality has gotten worse.
  • Digital media company Vice could be just weeks away from filing for bankruptcy.
  • The University of Alabama is having a tough spring. The school has fired baseball coach Brad Bohannon less than a week after suspicious gambling wagers were placed on the team’s games. The firing also comes just months after men’s basketball team member Darius Miles was arrested for capital murder. Star teammate Brandon Miller, who is expected to be a first-round NBA draft pick next month, was allowed to continue playing for the Crimson Tide despite allegedly supplying the gun used in the shooting.
  • Mobile phone tracking data shows that Denver‘s downtown has only returned to about 62% of the pre-pandemic traffic.
  • Jackson Mahomes, the social-media gadfly brother of Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes, was arrested for aggravated sexual battery and held on a $100,000 bond.
  • Actress/talk-show host Drew Barrymore withdrew as host of MTV Movie & TV Awards just days before the event, citing the WGA writers’ strike.
  • Two student journalists from USC covering the NFL draft were arrested for stealing jerseys intended for first-round draft picks.

So, who won the week?
