How is a graphic showing me that bigger cities have more jobs for people to access "The Carless Commute Ranking to End All Carless Commute Rankings"? Shouldn't this be more in a per capita basis than a strict job number basis? Because it it were, I'm sure cities like Portland would rank higher than Denver and especially LA.

I would bet the difference in that correlation would come down to transit systems based mainly on rail to those based mainly on buses like Denver and LA.
"The engineer is the key figure in the material progress of the world. It is his engineering that makes a reality of the potential value of science by translating scientific knowledge into tools, resources, energy and labor to bring them into the service of man. To make contributions of this kind the engineer requires the imagination to visualize the need of society and to appreciate what is possible as well as the technological and broad social age understanding to bring his vision to reality."

I also think that having the lightrail go through the tech center and central downtown really skews the data in Denver's favor, no?

It's citylab. Trying to over-analyze some of the overly simplistic lists and hyperbolic statements can make your head explode with the methodology flaws and contradictions.

Do what the rest of us do and accept it at face value when it makes Denver look good, and pretend it doesn't exist when it makes Denver look bad. You'll end up happier and live a longer life.

Yeah that one is especially stupid though. It hurts even if you don't think too hard about it.
