Reading business coverage these days is a lot like watching Dawn of the Dead; corpses are everywhere, whether they're laying down or not. So credit the folks at the Denver Business Journal with finding a tiny glimmer of positive news. Granted, none of the developments featured in "Three Denver Companies Expand Operations, Enlarge Offices" qualify as recession-reversing: For instance, Wildernest Logistics Solutions, Inc., "has moved its corporate headquarters to 41,000 square feet of office space at 3500 N. Windsor Dr., Suite 400, in Aurora." But considering that most other biz reports these days focus, by necessity, on downsizing, shuttering or a combination thereof, any hint of entrepreneurial optimism is mighty welcome.
