Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I really don't know how well the Dominionist problem has been dealt with. The Air Force, and, especially, the Air Force Academy, is a bit of an outlier. It was probably a mistake to locate it next to Colorado Springs - the Orange County of Colorado. Boulder would have been a MUCH better choice, but there probably wasn't suitable land available, especially for an air base.

Boulder? Too upscale lib'rul. I don't think military people and college students mix well.
There's plenty of flat space further west, where DIA was built.

Yeah, but then the conspiracy theories were be too nutty, given that the NWO/Illuminati types are already obsessed with Denver International.

(Side note:  Forget the Satanist horse at the entrance.  That airport is a colossal pain in the ass.  It might as well be in Tulsa.)

Elon will fix it with a hyperloop tunnel to downtown Denver.

Elon's thinking bigger-picture.  I'm not optimistic on his ability to hit his goals, but at least he's thinking and putting some skin in the game.

It was a sardonic joke, but it might actually happen, as so many other such jokes have come to be fact. Think Trump. At least that one would be useful.
