Morning Chatter with Elbon Yan

Good Morning, friends. This is Elbon Yan here, bringing you another day of  Morning Chatter from Denver, Colorado—where we give you all the latest gossip from in and around our charming Mile High City here on the edge of the Rocky Mountains.

The first thing I want to talk to you about today is the Denver airport limo that crashed into a bus yesterday. It was a rather big story, so big that last night it made the Channel 9 News. And yet several people I talked to last night at the cocktail party at the Brown Palace Hotel hadn’t heard about it.

Which means that it’s possible that you haven’t heard the story yet either. So if that’s the case, let me give you a brief report.

It seems that there was there was this airport limo which was taking Mr. Nathaniel Mosbacher out to the airport yesterday.

Mr. Mosbacher, of course, is the newspaper magnate from Atlanta, Georgia, who several years ago, back in 2012, retired from the rat race, sold all his newspapers and moved to Denver, where he bought a small boutique winery, which was called Denver Blue.

Ever since then he and his wife have been running Denver Blue, which has been becoming more and more popular with the smart set here in the Mile High City.

Well, yesterday Mr. Mosbacher was heading out to the airport to catch a plane to Europe, where he often goes for rest and relaxation.

He was riding in a chauffeured limousine, which is the type of transportation he characteristically uses to get to the airport.

And along the way, while the limousine was still downtown not far from the capital, it ran into an RTD commuter bus. The damage wasn’t severe, but nonetheless Mr. Mosbacher was very upset that it had happened.

He thought that the accident had been caused by the bus driver, who had made a turn without properly signaling. So he jumped out of the limousine and started yelling at the driver at the top of his lungs.

There’s more to this story, but that’s enough to give you the basic tenor of the thing. Suffice it to say that there wouldn’t have been a story at all if Mr. Mosbacher had not been the protagonist. It was only because of that cantankerous VIP that anyone cared.

We’ll have more on that story, including its surprise ending, tomorrow.
