Reader: Even if New York Gave Out Nightly Free Blow Jobs, Colorado Would Still Be Better

new.york.central.park.screen.capture.565x300.jpg
Of course, people don't have to be from New York to peruse the New York Times. But Patricia Calhoun's post about a Times column focusing on Colorado -- and reader comments declaring that, among other things, pot legalization is boring -- inspired plenty of Colorado v. New York debates among our readers. Standing out from the pack was the following example of particularly memorable sarcasm.

Kev Markis writes:

Shit guys, get a grip! Clearly the world revolves around New York. It has almost 88% of the world's population, and the nightly free blow jobs are a great way for them to give back to the taxpayers. Also, um, helooooo, Time Square, anybody? That place is neat.

So we should just abandon the place? Just let Detroit and NoLa eat themselves alive?

New Orleans is a total ghetto, sans a few square blocks outside of downtown. Even the rich areas aren't nothing to brag about. I speak as a former longtime NOLA resident, foo! Stop living in the past.

Denver is awesome and laid back, but the public transit here is terrible...ny is wayyyyy more walkable and there are still things to do/places to eat after 2am always

Haha! I see the point. NYC is a very unique place that takes a certain type of person to be there and enjoy it. I think Denver is more enjoyable by a plethora of different people and that's why it's so great.

Spent plenty of time in NYC, specifically TriBeCa and Astoria, and it's a giant shithole. Only a too cool for the room dickbag would say that Denver doesn't count as a real city. I guess piss smelling sidewalks, more homeless than the population of small city, rats as big as small dogs and an influx of über rich euro trash counts as a culture, then yes, NYC is the cultural Mecca of the modern, congrats!

Hey guys just so you all know (I'm the Kev Markis that was quoted), I'm actually from New York and recently made the move to Denver. Both are great in totally different ways, and hardly step on each others toes. Having said that, fuck Jersey.

We have a really intelligent and diverse/ever changing public in the Denver area,and the paper should show it..while rooted in the history of the state...in a time when papers are on the quick to their demise..at least we can fill the few venues with Real Tawk! ..not B.S...I.M.O. Hire some unemployed writers instead of "interns" ..

In a city with one paper..step it up..or at least maintain what the "paper" version sometimes does.

You want culture? Go to London, Rome, Buenos Aires, Tokyo, or even Toronto for that matter. NYC is just one overcrowded shit turd with the worst forms of parasitical life.

If your ignorant and cant take advantage of opportunity and if your a social quack who doesnt know how to have fun in a big city like new york and you have to resort to a small city filled with meth heads and stoners whos ambition steches as far as their couch than yea you probably would like denver more. The best part of colorado is everything west of c-470. Everything else is just like any other place in America just with more weed.

How about if the person giving out the blow jobs had gingivitis and periodontal disease? Lol. No, I don't agree. You can't compare an apple to an orange.
