WTF? Rolling Stone lists the 25 Best Record Stores in the USA and leaves Colorado out?

Hey, Rolling Stone, WTF? Twist & Shout, Wax Trax, Independent, Albums on the Hill, Jerry's, Angelos, Black and Red -- ever heard of 'em? Clearly not, we're guessing, since you somehow saw fit not to include any of these fine establishments in your supposed list of the 25 Best Record Stores in the U.S.A. Maybe we're homers, but the exclusion renders your list immediately suspect. No one expects you to have the drop on every single record store in America, unless, or course, well, you've set out to tally and rank the best record stores in the country. Just saying.
