Pueblo and Colorado Springs

Compare the "You might be from Pueblo if" quiz with the Colorado Springs Independent's recent feature, "You are sooooo Colorado Springs." (Link may change.)

I always put it this way: if you go to a party in Pueblo, you might be asked, "Where did you go to high school?" In Colorado Springs, you would be asked, "Where did you move here from?"

That's not always true: Pueblo's dark side manifests itself when it seems like everyone is somebody's cousin, and some us can claim roots in the Springs. Given a choice, these days, I'm partial to Pueblo--but then I work there.

Thanks to Don McCullen for the Pueblo quiz and to my students who had fun discussing the questions.

I spent nearly five years in Pueblo, still have family there. What is this quiz you are talking about?
