I knew about the 1st 3 on the list, as having lived here. You have a point, Tony, about the wording "from Denver/Colorado".

Unless you were born in Denver/Colorado than you aren't from Denver/Colorado. Living in the State doesn't make it true.

That's absolutely not true. I was born in Albuquerque raised in Denver Colorado and lived there most of my life! That makes me from Colorado. That does not make me from Albuquerque. Dummy.
