Greetings from Denver, where the local time is 12:26 a.m., and the year -- judging from the decor in our hotel, the Four Points Sheraton -- appears to be 1978. The furniture looks like rejects from Frontierland at Walt Disney World. The interior decorator seemed to pick out colors and fabrics by asking himself or herself what would go best with a coonskin cap.
Britt and I don't seem to have good luck with hotels in Denver. The first time we came here to visit his sister and her family, the hotel we stayed at was hosting a convention for some sort of fringe religious group. Last year, we checked into an Embassy Suites that shared the same color scheme as the house on "The Brady Bunch."
