Call it the Newspaper Preservation Act of 2009. Act now, and you can shell out more than six times the cover price for a souvenir bundle of five inauguration-day copies of The Denver Post or Rocky Mountain News. That's right, if you call before -- well, before they run out -- the Denver Post Inauguration Keepsake Pack including FIVE Jan. 21, 2009, editions can be yours at the low, low -- I mean, horrendously inflated -- price of $15.50.
