Read from June 13 to 21, 2012

So I just moved to Denver last spring and was shocked an horrified by what I read in this book, in no small part because it is physically so close to me. I drive out to the site last weekend to orientate myself to it all. And yes--whole communities are in the works, and there's a ton of deliberately planned "preserves." Seeing the community with its lakes and its parks is now really creepy and unsettling to me because I know WHY they're there. I don't know if I can look at land reclamation in the same way anymore. I want to DO something. Just don't know what quite yet.
