Dear Park Meadows:

There's something about your mall The fake pine trees? The fake waterfall? The contrived ski lodge motif?

I can't tell exactly, but I'm feelin' it major.

Normally I find shopping malls so spiritually oppressive that clinical depression hits long before I've found parking. By the time I'm forced to ponder Restoration Hardware and the class of marketing victims that make it possible, suicidal ideation is in full effect.

On a recent visit to your mall, however, a full 45 minutes elapsed before I even considered the nearest I-25 overpass from which to hurl myself. This compares with 12 minutes at Chapel Hills and 9 at Cherry Creek!

This might not sound like progress, but I'm starting to smell a breakthrough. If there's any other atmospheric factors about the mall that you think might be contributing to this positive experience it would be helpful for me to know.

Many thanks,

Kenneth Cleaver
