    PBS is showing a documentary this month comparing Denver (portrayed as the villainous suburban sprawl) and Portland (the vibrant, densely populated, city of tomorrow). It was really interesting: raising concerns about car culture and quality of life. Turns out that the main difference between Denver and Portland is that when the gov was handing out $$ for big highway projects, Denver built I-270, Portland built a light rail system, bike paths, and parks.
