Reader: "Denver ... World-Class Nanny-State"

Word of Rockbar's closure yesterday has been met with a variety of reactions from readers, ranging from those joining in on a chorus of good riddance on our Cafe Society blog to folks like emily225, who no doubt speaking for a good section of the nightlife community, put it simply: "nooooooooooooooooooooo." Our comment of the day, however, comes from WestGest and focuses not on the departure of Rockbar itself, but rather the perceived draconian tendencies of the city government.
