A New York Moment In Denver

Sometimes Denver can feel a little too much like New York City:

After some 200 volunteers spent the weekend futilely searching trash bins, alleys and hallways for the body of a missing 3-year-old girl, the city took the unprecedented move of suspending trash pickup today of Dumpster-size trash bins.

"We're going to request the delay of trash pickup Monday of the larger receptacles," police spokesman Sonny Jackson said. "We're asking all businesses to look in their trash Monday for anything that might be different."

I usually find it a pain, but today, I appreciate the fact that the dumpster behind my office near where authorities suspect that a child's body may have been dumped is locked with an iron bar and a padlock.
