Rudy: Hot as the Stock Show in Denver
From the Rocky Mountain News:
If you wondered why you crawled to work on I-25, I-70 or any of several thoroughfares leading into downtown this morning, blame it on the "Get Motivated" event.If you want to see Rudy Giuliani speak, and maybe even offer him some spontaneous encouragement to run, find a Get Motivated seminar near you.
The day-long seminar, being held at both the Pepsi Center and the Denver Coliseum, is expected to draw up to 16,000 people.
It features high-powered speakers Zig Ziglar, Steve Forbes, Suze Orman, Tom Hopkins, Mike Shanahan, Colin Powell and Rudolph Giuliani.
The seminar will run from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. today and traffic has been crawling on the interstates, Broadway, Brighton Boulevard, Colfax Avenue and Speer Boulevard all morning.
Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson said it is equivalent to the Stock Show and the traffic is reflective of it.
