Why can't you just stop mumbling to yourself and instead start writing something that makes more sense, milquetoast.

Chicago's a great midwestern capital, but like I stated before, people hit those hub airports and jet out faster than a prune shake at Taco Bell! L. A. area airports are not transfer hubs. L. A. is the destination. People move to Los Angeles because they want to live in a big, world class city with great weather and myriad possibility. There's really no more room for growth in the Bay area without seriously changing the character of the place for the negative. L. A. has blown past that already and is striving for a more dense environment. This is like oranges and - what do San Franciscans like to eat? I dunno.. anyway, I'm sure we all had fun.

Agree - that is why I didn't compare the two; just said that LA's wasn't to my liking, and that [in a different sentence ] said that I very much enjoyed SF's area, food, people, culture, and nightlife. Yes, LA is bigger, faster, and more - as is NYC's; but I'm also one that loves Boston too, and would take it over NYC. I prefer that style/size of place - the LA & NYC while great and big, are just not my style.

STARTED BASHING Chicago?? when have I ever posted a thread to intentionally bash Chicago?? its a waste of my time!!!!!
First off, I chose SF, I didnt bash LA, what part of that dont you understand???? Take a nice little stroll to the first page and read my response. I said SF, IMO (<--- key words!!!!!), is a better city than LA. So what? Do you really care that much? Secondly, it was donjuan that bashed Chicago immediately following my post. THATS when I started bashing LA. Thirdly, I never said that YOU bashed Chicago, I said the "little LA goons" did. Capeesh? Good frickin night.

Everything was closed at 9PM on a Saturday here? Are you mad? Are you talking shops? That's a possibility, but bars and restaurants stay open far past 9PM. I love when people make crazy off-the-wall statements like that.

Want to talk about L.A. and Chicago? That's why I put up a Chicago or Los Angeles poll thread.

Did anyone notice that Chicago attracts small-towners who want to "make it" from various states in the Midwest? That's why it's the only major city in the Midwest and one of the largest in North America.

That is WRONG, WRONG, WRONG! I have been all over the world...well all over Europe. Europeans are fascinated when I mention I'm from San Francisco. They say "wow" and ask tons of questions! No one ever asks anything about LA. You are gravely mistaken - LA's world image is STRICTLY limited to Hollywood. If LA didn't have Hollywood, it would be nothing.

And, I hear languages from all over the world here too. And, there are flocks of tourists on the Golden Gate Bridge (and on both sides), there are flocks of tourists in Pac Heights, I see them in the Castro.

More people may come to LA, but SF is one of the most beloved cities in the U.S. LA is certainly NOT!
