One comment often begets another -- and sometimes, a lot of others. That was certainly true for a Comment of the Day highlighting a reader who thinks DIA sucks.

Some agreed, but most were on this person's wavelength.

No offense to the poster but the design of DIA is the most efficient airport design known. The terminal and runway layout allows for virtually unlimited expansion when needed. It's also the most efficient way to move passengers between terminals. One could argue they could have more security lines, but any airport design course will show you the layout is optimal. Now, does it really need to be that far from the city? Ask cities that thought they built out far enough just to have urban sprawl envelope the airport and then have people complain about the noise.

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.
