    Why Colorado Springs?

    Colorado Springs is (or was) home to over 50 fundie organizations.  Additionally, it has high concentration of active military and former military (because of the bases and the Academy).  Also, Black Forest is a libertarian paradise.   It is outside of the city limits, so they only pay like 3% county sales taxes.  There are no covenants, so if you want to have a yard full of rusty cars and goats - nobody is going to stop you.  So why Colorado Springs?

    I mean if God is really going to punish us because of 'feminism debauchery' or whatever, wouldn't he be punishing Boulder?  Yes, Boulder has had several wild fires as well, including one a couple of years ago that destroyed a bunch of home in a canyon - but the fires have so far stopped short of destroying homes in Boulder proper - unlike Colorado Springs.  And Denver County is actually more liberal than Boulder County.  Yet Denver hasn't had any wild fires (mostly due to the fact that Denver is urban where as Boulder is on the edge of forest).

    So, Why Colorado Springs, assholes?
