Somebody Call Indiana Jones

According to cbs4Denver.com, a chapter of the National Socialist Movement calling itself the American Nazi Party requested a 1-mile stretch of highway in a suburb north of Denver as part of Colorado's Adopt-A-Highway program. The Colorado Department of Transportation said it felt it had no choice but to grant the request out of fear it would face a free-speech lawsuit if it didn't. A 2001 Supreme Court decision allowed the Ku Klux Klan to adopt a highway in Missouri.
