Denver, where our mayors and school administration prove you don't have to be a republican to be crooked.

Number ten is fucked up. I know people who have died due to careless drivers. I don't know why someone would think putting someone's life at risk is funny. People's lives are more important than being somewhere on time.

This list is retarded. 4/20 is for tourists and while the Rockies may be taller, the Smoky Mountains and Cascades are infinitely more beautiful. How many actual natives can still afford to live in Denver? Remember when Downtown had several department stores? Remember when W 38th was Denver's Little Italy? Remember when the Tivoli was a shopping mall with a movie theater? Remember when the area that is the Highlands was considered the ghetto?

You might also confirm the population demographics while doing your fact checking.

And there you go. No one is saying Texas is better. No one is saying all Coloradans suck. It's the 1% natives that think their shit don't stink that I personally can't stand. Sure I'm a proud Texan but I checked that shit when I left the state. Now I'm a proud Colorado resident. No better, no worse than the average resident here.

At Hank : I agree. Norsiders nevvvvver called it Highlands. TECHNICALLY, La Raza park is named Columbus park and we never called it that either. It isn't the NAME Highlands we hate so much as what it has come to represent. Now, 1800's, whatever. And please! A Northsider knowin history that far back? Don't kid yourself Archuleta lol.

I was being rhetorical, point being is that Us 'native residents' didn't call it that regardless of what It was initially called in the gold rush era. Haha
