Reader: The TSA gets a lot more complaints than Frontier -- or any other airline

frontier.tales.205x205.JPG
Yesterday, we shared the results of the latest Airline Quality Rating study, and they weren't kind to Frontier, which tumbled from the top ten and finished dead last when it comes to customer complaints. Some readers were surprised by the low marks, others expected them -- and this commenter puts them into an interesting perspective.

Our post about the prospect of Denver hosting the 2016 Republican National Convention (the city is still in the running) included comments from the RNC Facebook page, including one that dubbed the Colorado capital a "liberal shithole." That phrase inspired interesting takes from lots of readers, including this one.

Reader: After you ban alcohol from Wash Park, please ban volleyball -- and overweight people

Our post about Denver City Councilman Chris Nevitt's suggested booze ban at Washington Park (which only allows 3.2 percent alcohol as it is) didn't receive a lot of popular support in our comments section. But there was some easy-to-detect sarcasm, as seen in this memorable post.

When we shared our latest post about alleged pot profiling, keyed to a lawsuit against the Idaho State Patrol by a man who says he was pulled over because of his Colorado license plates, we asked readers if they'd experienced anything similar. The response was huge and the stories were many. Here are five examples.

Readers had a lot of theories about why Colorado placed so high in a list of the ten most sexually active U.S. cities.

Most of them were highly complimentary, but there were exceptions, including the one that follows -- although its author displays a definite sense of humor.

Reader: I'd be dead of old age before craft-weed is sold commercially

To mark Colorado Craft Beer week, Governor John Hickenlooper hosted a celebration of the $826 million craft-beer industry at the Governor's Mansion last Friday, where he also displayed the building's new beer taps -- paid for by the Colorado Brewers Guild -- while Mason Tvert, father of Amendment 64, protested the governor's hypocritical stance on pot outside the manse that he accused Hickenlooper of turning into Animal House.

Movoto, the "real estate made easy" site that also makes it really easy to hype its lists, recently revealed "10 Things Only People From Denver Will Understand." But many people from Denver didn't understand a number of inclusions: "I'm native Denver, I don't own fleece, smoke weed or snowboard. I like Coors, Jim Beam and Rock and Roll.

But the staged brewhaha seemed to miss an important point: If Hick is celebrating beers, doesn't that make him a prime candidate for Delta Tau Chi -- and Tvert the party pooper?
