Teague Bohlen has been offering tips for transplants to Denver all year, advising them on how to prepare for each new month in their own home. And here's another tip: Whenever we publish one of his lists, including his July Tips for Transplants, natives and newcomers alike are quick to respond. Says Langston:

This is a really fucking stupid article. Every city in the world has people move to it — get the fuck over the idea that only Denver has "transplants." Ohh, the burden of new people.

 Responds Ben:

But since you're part of the mindless lemming movement so desperate to live here, you won't understand how rad Colorado use to be before it turned into a transplant haven.

Concludes Dennis: 

You all could move to Kansas if you aren't happy here. That's the cool thing about the United States.
