Reader: Michael Hancock should imagine a great city, because right now, Denver isn't one

Patricia Calhoun's post about the slogan "Imagine a great city" and its echoes in new Denver mayor Michael Hancock's inaugural speech may have inspired many readers, but not all.

Take this commenter, for instance.

If a Tree Fell in the Forest writes:

Imagine a city with any energy and vitality. Denver 2011 is starting to remind me of Denver circa 1981. What the fuck happened here? There's no new vision, there's a new lackluster Mayor, there's no vision, no fun, nothing, nada, zilch. Oh yeah: We are Denver. Scary.
