My favorite cowboys, McKinley and Whitfield, will be making a rare appearance at Merle’s Restaurant in Littleton, Colorado this Friday at 7:30 for some old-school singing and cowboy poetry. You may recall that Wes McKinley was a Colorado State Representative (D-Walsh) for 8 years until he was term-limited out in 2012. If you are really old, or a historian, or an environmental activist, you may remember that he was the Grand Jury Foreman in the Justice Department’s investigation of the Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Plant (1989), still a source of nuclear contamination and contention near Denver. The complete story is told in The Ambushed Grand Jury, co-authored by McKinley.
Well, the times have changed, but McKinley and Whitfield, not so much. Come by for eats, drinks, and to shake the hand of Wes McKinley, a true American hero. They don’t make ’em like that anymore.
Merle’s Restaurant is located at 2609 W. Main St, Littleton, Colorado. Go here for more information and a map.
