Reader: 65 percent of people in Colorado are wack jobs

Our post about the latest police officer to wind up on the wrong side of the law -- Colorado Springs's Jeffrey Warkocz -- prompted a conversation that spun off in many directions.

Breeanna Back writes:

Because 65% of the people that live in Colorado are wack jobs. I may be young and not well 'seasoned,' but of all the places I've been and all the things I've seen Colorado, by far has the most screwed up scene of people. There is something deliberately wrong. I think it may have something to do with living in the weirdest grassland dessert on the planet.
