Denver City Councilman Albus Brooks wanted to cheer on public school teachers as they returned to work on Thursday, but chose to celebrate in a way that risked the lives of his neighbors: he videotaped himself as he was driving.
People walking have the right of way to cross 13th Avenue in Capitol Hill, but few dare take it. Motorists, not the many people on foot who frequent the dense neighborhood, rule the commercial and residential strip. That changed for one day.
