And the air quality used to be horrendous. People in the suburbs were really hateful toward anyone who wasn't exactly like them. The city was better in that regard, but didn't have a whole lot to do as cities go.
That was exactly my experience living there. (But I would take the Nuggets/Avs/Broncos over WNBA/CHL/OU any day of the week!)
