UPDATE: 11:18 a.m. Wednesday July 3: Bright spot today: Bicyclist Willie Latimer's recovery is "extraordinary," his brother says. He's undergoing facial reconstructive surgery — lots of pain, but getting better. He's out of the ICU and has spoken; cognition is "promising" but "isn't quite all there yet." — Andy Kenney (@AndyKnny) July 2, 2019 UPDATE: […]
As the population grows, “nearly half the land in Denver’s city limits is now paved or built over,” shrinking the city's green space, according to a recent series in Denver Post. But there’s something important missing in their account. The city’s pavement problem isn’t because of a growing population of people. It’s because of a growing population of cars. It’s the roads, driveways and – perhaps most egregiously – the parking lots we’ve built to accommodate more cars.
