Rich Hippies










I first heard the word "trustafarian" when I visited Boulder in the '80s. The concept has since become common currency- the bohemian wastrel backed by unlimited funding. I'd be lying if I claimed that my return to the Colorado college town last weekend didn't leave me feeling jealous. I was so charmed by the area's luxurious decadence that I looked into real estate. This home, located directly across the street from a Mercedes dealership in a Boulder suburb, lists for over half a million dollars. I guess I'll stay in Kansas.

    Denver used to be a nice place to live.

    Then Californians came and ruined it for everyone else.

    Fell in love with CO a long time ago, shoulda stayed before life got in the way.... I so wanted to buy Fogelberg's mansion out in Pagosa Springs after he died, but none of my lottery tickets ever hit. Half a mil, 15 mil, if ya ain't got it, it's kinda all the same. Darn the luck.
