I Thought I was Kidding

You can't make this stuff up --- even when you try!

9NEWS - Article - Some residents can’t win battle to keep sidewalks clear: "DENVER – When 60-year-old Cynthia Roberson got a citation to for having snow on her sidewalk, she could not believe it.

And it's not because the disabled woman can’t physically move the frozen-over mess, but because she already paid someone to shovel her walkways.

“It was clean. It was done correctly,” Roberson said.

However, she said overnight Denver city plows scooped the snow back and buried her sidewalks. Now, the city has given her 24 hours to remove the snow or else she faces a fine of $150 for the first offense, $500 for the next one."

Is Denver kinda like the Seattle of Colorado, with the rest of the state being markedly different in its political makeup?

Most of the State considers Boulder, Aspen or Telluride to be markedly different. Of course, that really is not the case as many parts of the State display behavior which is a wonder to behold.

In my opinion, Denver's main problem is public bureaucracy gone to seed. The seed has germinated and they appear to be near the stage, Injelititis (Parkinson's 8th Law)

Skook --- Denver is widly different. Telluride (Santa Monica west), Boulder and Aspen are considered to be separate dimensions.
