Supreme cover is well, supreme

A full-page wrap of today’s New York Post, features the logo of streetware company Supreme.

According to The New York Times and other media outlets, the edition sold out quickly, snapped up by Supreme fans.

“We knew that this would be a collector’s item,” said Jesse Angelo, the paper’s publisher. “Supreme is such a cool brand and we have so much affinity, to the design kinship of the logos, to being bold, and never shy, and New York-based.”

Supreme was so jazzed about the ad, they posted this video of the press run on Instagram:

Taking a coordinated stand against a thug

BOSTON (AP) — A Boston newspaper is proposing a coordinated editorial response from publications across the U.S. to President Donald Trump’s frequent attacks on the news media.

‘‘We are not the enemy of the people,’’ said Marjorie Pritchard, deputy managing editor for the editorial page of The Boston Globe, referring to a characterization of journalists that Trump has used in the past. The president, who contends he has largely been covered unfairly by the press, also employs the term ‘‘fake news’’ often when describing the media.

The Globe has reached out to editorial boards nationwide to write and publish editorials on Aug. 16 denouncing what the newspaper called a ‘‘dirty war against the free press.’’

So far, The Houston Chronicle, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Miami Herald and Denver Post are some of the larger newspapers who have signed up.

There are many, many examples of Trump enticing his supporters, but you’re going to have to Google that on your own. However, it’s getting more and more sinister, to the point that we have this warning:

“We began to see a campaign against the media … that could have potentially, and still can, set in motion a chain of events which could quite easily lead to harm being inflicted on journalists just going about their work and potentially some self-censorship,” Zeid said. “And in that context, it’s getting very close to incitement to violence.”

Kudos to former Denver Post employee

Lempko began in-line skating seriously six years ago. He started off in-line skating from Denver to Boulder and back, and gradually increased his round-trips to Idaho Springs, and Georgetown.

Denver to Boulder — Holy SMOKES!

Round trip to Idaho Springs and Georgetown. HOLY SMOKES!!!

Both of those trips involve a lot of elevation gains. Lots and lots of hills.
