Local movie mogul debuts in Denver

Local mega-talent Meredith Glynn, a 2000 graduate of Battle Mountain High School, wrote, produced and directed a film shown at the Denver International Film Festival Sunday. Her film screened in the Colorado Independent Filmmakers Program on Monday and will screen again on Sunday, Oct. 19. Everyone who knows and loves her should immediately go to denverfilm.org. Meredith is a senior in the Film School at Florida State University, and regularly appears on the Dean’s List. Her mom and stepdad, Joy Overbeck and Buff Arnold of Edwards, and bio-dad Jim Glynn of Denver, now find it absolutely impossible to talk about anything but the incredibly Divine Miss M. Congrats, Meredith. Next stop, the Oscars!

Each year, the Darwin Award is given to the person who best proves

Darwin’s theory of evolution?

The most stupid of any species will not survive to reproduce.

Here are a couple:

– A man who shoveled snow for an hour to clear a space for his car during a blizzard in Chicago returned with his vehicle to find a woman had taken the space. Understandably, he shot her.

– After stopping for drinks at an illegal bar, a Zimbabwean bus driver found that the 20 mental patients he was supposed to be transporting from Harare to Beltway had escaped. Not wanting to admit his incompetence, the driver went to a nearby bus stop and offered everyone waiting there a free ride. He then delivered the passengers to the mental hospital, telling the staff that the patients were very excitable and prone to bizarre fantasies. The deception wasn’t discovered for 3 days.
