    “Denver Business Journal Publishes Column Comparing Transit and Bike Planning to Porn or Something” ie “Viewpoint: Connecting the dots on ‘collaborative cronyism’ ” Just goes to show that on either end of the ‘spectrum’ that connecting dots that don’t becomes an artform.

    Never heard of the Mobility Choice Blueprint. Neither do I know a whole lot about DRCOG. Other than being a clearing house for (dated) information and studies they seem generally worthless. Such a stark contrast to their sister organization in Phoenix, MAG, which has successfully created a transportation system that has metro Phoenix rated 47th (worst) for congestion with the 11th largest MSA. Whether you prefer their transportation system is besides the point; they’ve sustainably and competently executed what the residents and voters asked for. Denver? Not so much.
