In my 30 years in the area, Ive NEVER heard anyone back talk Indy. If anything, Chicagoans dislike Wisconsinites because of their hatred for us. Oh, that and the Packers.

I'm not even aware that Indianapolis exists. It's, like... all the way over there. That said, the worst driving experience I have ever had in my life was in Indianapolis. Even Boston is mild in comparison.

People really do hate Chicago. Rarely do I find people who have positive things to say about us. I'm alright with this; it keeps the Californians from suburbanizing even more of our land and it keeps us under the radar from the east coast.

The beach resort I vacationed at this summer wasn't overrun with terrible rap stars or Manhattan business people

Most people who live in San Fran aren't from San Fran. Would be odd if they had a vendetta to others who weren't!

They do and, yes, it is odd.

Serious, I have to agree with you here. I have been to Chicago plenty of times, and never have I been around a more defensive crowd. How awful it must be to have to defend your city so much. It's like they are trying to convince themselves that it's the best.

Also, Houston, as you can probably see from reading this board alone (mpope), has a serious problem with people being defensive too. It just looks so pathetic when these people get all hurt anytime someone does not like their city. I could care less what people think about Portland. I really don't understand the mentality of Steve-o, Mpope, afj..., and all the others who get all hurt about simple comments.

I would really love to see you visit that "beach resort" in the middle of January. Oh, that's right, you can't. Haha, and it's not even on the ocean, how nice

Steve-o, are you saying that you don't sit here defending Chicago against basically every comment that you see as demeaning? Do you actually believe that what I have said is not true? If that's the case, and you want to argue it, I can look at your past posts and show you.

Most people leaving California would not even consider the Frost Belt------especially being that many parts of the Sun Belt are no more expensive so you are 'safe', coldwine.
