Its a nice area, why not? Would you expect young professional people in LA to move to Compton?

FYI, the south loop and west loop areas have begun to massively gentrify as well. Buildings near the museum campus have sprouted up like weeds and are also attracting many young professionsals.

Chicago vs San Fran? This one is tough...

Does San Fran have a vendetta against people not from the city like Chicago does?

I swear, people from Indy treat Chicagoans like people from Tucson treat Phoenicians, they cant stand the bigger city next door and therefore need to make smart arse comments all the time. Colts, shouldnt you go back to your "palace" and continue to attack "Joisey" folks (in your words)?

First of all, I'm not even from Indy. I only went there during college and liked it, unlike you. I don't know how many times I have to say this. You act as if we look down on you or something (even though we have good reason to do so).

Maybe if Chicagoans didn't act like they're the center of the universe then we wouldn't even have this issue. It really is a shame how they think they're better than everybody...but particularly people from New York and smaller Midwestern cities like Indy.

Did you watch David Letterman's show when they had that science fair? The Jr. High girl was from Naperville who went to school in Lisle. Apparently Dave gave a dirty look when she mentioned Naperville, IL.

Noone thinks that. Sure we defend our city like everyone else, but Ive never met a single person who thinks Chicago is the "center of the universe". That phrase is usually used by New Yorkers, not us. We're content with the fact that we're not in the spotlight as much as LA and NYC.

The way I see it is, everyone outside of Chicagoland has a hatred of Chicago. They see it as a "bully" or a "monster" (yes, Ive heard those terms tossed about) and feel the need to attack it all the time.

Then on another show when the Colts and the Bears were in the Super Bowl, his guest (maybe Bob Newhart) was from Chicagoland. Dave said he didn't like Chicago.

Those two events illustrate his dislike for Chicago.
I'm sure this is just an isolated case and not representative of everyone...but I think you have it mixed up my friend. It's the Chicago people that don't like Indy, not the other way around.

He's jealous because Oprah makes more $$ than he does and is more well-known.

Dave can take his gap-toothed mouth and shut it. He's another one of those "we're NYC so we're the center of the universe" folks.
