Hey Tim,
I'm glad you are enjoying yourself out there in Denver! I will be in the area next week, visiting for the second time. Red Rocks Park is awesome. I was able to hike there on my last visit, and the views of the surrounding foothills was so awesome! I also plan on staying in a hotel once I officially move out there, hopefully before the end of this month. Just got to find a job first, but I am hopeful. Good luck to everyone else considering a move!

I'm sorry, but Denver Sucks, it's too brown, too dry, it's a desert with a mountain range attached to it.

Denver Sucks??? I am of the educated class and I do not have that usage in my vocabulary. Suck is a transitive verb which takes an object. Using it as an intransitive verb is incorrect usage, and leaves the reader hanging because he is awaiting the object of the action.

So let me give you some objects of the action, so we can better understand each other:

Denver sucks in new transplants.
Denver sucks in new opportunity.
Denver sucks in new wealth.
Denver sucks in new culture.
Denver sucks in a new style of living.
Denver sucks in new urban neighborhoods.
Denver sucks in tolerant people.
Denver sucks in all ethnic groups.
Denver sucks in the young adventurers.
Denver sucks in new business.
Denver sucks in the educated.
Denver sucks in the new rich.
Denver sucks in the old rich.
Denver sucks in................

Yes, Do you hear that sucking sound--that is my city--Denver, Colorado.

Kate - we obviously disagree with you but please let us know what city you like. i'm guessing that you have a soft spot for Detroit, or maybe Pittsburgh, Cleveland, linclon (NE), the state of Oklahoma or Gary Indiana. Just curious.

Great post as always LiveContent! I feel sorry for someone who may be stuck someplace they don't like and they should do as Tim, the OP of this thread did, find a new place to live. I love Denver and it is wonderful to hear Tim's thoughts as a new resident!

Now let's not put down my hometown, Pittsburgh. I also like Cleveland. Nebraska is not bad. But I don't think Denver sucks anything!

i think we can learn a lot from your perspective. and your sense of humor. for the fun of it, i've hilighted what denver seems, to me, to suck in more of, leaving what it seems to suck in less of without hilighting, or underlined what i agree it sucks in, but maybe with a qualification ("educated", though maybe more in a sense of "degreed"; or some tolerant people, but maybe not necessarily engaging or "interested" people in some cases; or ethnic groups, but not so many as many cities it's size, and not that most of us necessarily will see much of that, for example).

overall, i'd agree that it can be a good place to "livecontent".
