Denver Police Brace for Convention

... so says the headline. However, they mean the unruly Democratic National Convention, not the World Science Fiction Convention (which is this weekend in Denver). The police aren't worried by Imperial Stormtroopers, Klingons, and Spartan Marines — just longwinded tales tolds by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. (An all-too-apt description for both parties, considering the actual context and source of that quotation.) Just think, though: If it was the Heffalumps, the cops could worry about some real alien life-forms like 4nn C0ult3r.
