Comment of the Day

Reader: Colorado drivers are getting profiled because of all the sh*tty states nearby

A post asking whether Colorado drivers are being profiled as a result of the state's marijuana policies begat a Comment of the Day from one reader who shared his own profile-target experience. And that post spawned still more memorable comments -- like this one dissing the places across Colorado's borders.
