In the Sept. 25 Sunday Coloradoan, I read five or six different
reasons why our city is the best. I have yet to read anything anywhere
that suggests because Fort Collins has medical marijuana centers we're
going to be taken off the A list.

In the article about our economic vibrancy, Richard Florida recognizes
six key variables that causes Fort Collins to stand out in the nation.
One of those key variables I noticed wasn't intolerance.

To be truly a great city, we as citizens must have the capability to
open our minds and hearts to others who may not be of the same thought
and try to understand their plight.

Fort Collins is a celebrated community because we are a diverse one,
willing to be innovative, thoughtful, forward thinking and fair minded.
