Actually I was trying to be witty with that comment. Puget Sound is mostly fed by the Pacific Ocean--a literal backwater.

Don't get me wrong. I love DC. Made many friends up here. SO many that it is making me think twice about leaving and I fit in here pretty good. But I just love Chicago and have many friends out there as well. My family really wants me to come out there but I tell them maybe so it's not definite. There still is a good chance that I stay here in DC though. I feel I can be more free up here too. I can wear my hat anyway I want to up here in DC lol. I meant many Chicagoans out here that relocated to DC that feels the same way.

Los Angeles, no doubt.

- Biggest city
- Best weather
- Best state
- Best ethnic/cultural/racial mix
- Best arts/culture
- Most historical (maybe tied w/ Chicago)
- Closer to other big, interesting cities (San Diego, San Francisco, Palm Springs, Santa Barbara, Las Vegas, even Phoenix)
- Everything from snow to beach to desert to forests

Compare all that to:
Atlanta - hot, humid, redneck, and boring
Dallas - hot, humid, redneck, and boring but with grasshopper and cricket infestations and freezing winter days
Chicago - not as diverse and too freezing cold in their long winters
Seattle - smaller city with far too much rain, almost all the time

It's a no-brainer - L.A. is easily the best.

atlanta:
-beautiful with rolling hills and lush with tall forests
-great history
-beautiful architecture
-four seasons with pleasant winters
-black cultural mecca
-great nightlife
-great southern cooking
-excellent family attractions
-unique neighborhoods with beautiful homes
-top ranking institutes of higher education
-located in the great south
-proximity to the beautiful appalachians and the beaches of florida and south carolina

compare that to...los angeles:
-cramped
-ugly
-supremely overpriced
-corny "hipsters"
-segregated neighborhoods
-institutionalized racism
-fake hollywood atmosphere
-no seasons
-located in one of the most overrated states in the nation

I dont think those bridges are pointless...In that case the bridges in Pittsburgh would also be pointless....For years Dallas has ignored the trinity river....They are finally catching on they can use the river to there advantange...The Trinity in essence should have been a staple to Dallas devlopment and only now is that actually coming to true...People criticise Dallas for every freaking thing...Give the city some credit...Its making huge strives to become a more complete city....

Really? Atlanta gets all 4 seasons, including cold weather. Also, Atlanta isn't rural, so we don't have many rednecks. Besides, each region of the U.S has an annyoing, biast, and pointless group that nobody likes. Also Atlanta doesn't have large gang issues.
