Denver is being overloaded with human beings...they are building on every square inch of land they can get their hands on...building crappy box-like structures to 'house' more people...with very high rents....our roads are sub-standard and taxes are high...despite the collection of money from pot and gambling. Our air, from fracking and the volume of cars, is terrible....on and on for the negative. BUT you can say positive things too...
