Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Our post about the top thirty reasons for moving to Denver launched a debate weighing the relative merits of Californians and Texans who relocate here -- one that's spilled over into not one but two prior Comments of the Day. In the latest on the topic, one reader associates the style of those two states with some negatives cropping up in this one.

Danny Gillam writes:

I don't like extremes and the only thing people from either state seem to offer are extremes. They both have the "do it my way or the highway" mentality. It's stupid really. You can thank CA style thinking if you like wasting a million dollars on a logo. Then of course there's TX style which is agree or we secede. Hardcore libs and cons are ridiculous and only further drive the stake into the divide of the state and country.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
