Celebrating Denver's future

  Thank you for the superb article "Back on Track" by Allen Best (HCN, 11/14/05: Back on Track). I reluctantly moved from Denver two and a half years ago, at a time when we could be cautiously optimistic about Denver’s mass transit future. I have since followed developments in Denver, which, as Allen writes, are indeed back on track.

While Allen reports the facts adeptly, I was particularly impressed by the comprehensiveness and balance in his article. It is a rare good thing when environmental, industrial and developmental interests coincide, and the article beautifully covers this aspect of the story. While this decade is seeing more than its share of dreadful events of which the public must be made aware, we must also celebrate the successes.
