Denver mayor envisioneers sparkly new Airportropolis

Welcome to the 5280Used to be, they built airports near cities. Now we’re going to build a city near an airport. Because, you know, we built our airport nowhere near the goddamned city, I guess.

I love the 5280, but sometimes I think a little more oxygen wouldn’t hurt anything….
