Heard on Colfax: George Will

George Will

"The fear that war may blow civilization to smithereens loses some of its sting when you see Denver’s Colfax Avenue. It is one of those thoroughfares—most cities have at least one—that nuclear devastation would improve... This unsightly river of commerce reflects the malice of Destiny, which did not have elegance in mind for an avenue named after Schuyler Colfax." - American libertarian-conservative political commentator George Will, 1978.
