Reader: There's an Epidemic of Whiners in Colorado

There's been a lot of talk about high rents in Denver of late.

So we recently shared a list of the ten metro-area neighborhoods with the cheapest rent for a one-bedroom apartment.

Many of the areas on the roster are in outlying parts of Denver, and few can be described as trendy. As such, some readers weren't thrilled at the prospect of living there.

This response doesn't express much sympathy for the point of view.

Lol, you complain that the rent is too high but then won't live somewhere that isn't the greatest. There is an epidemic of whiners in this state.
