If you had to accept a $100,000 position in either city, which one would you rather live in?

St. Paul. I've heard good things about the MSP area. I've never heard of Picayune, but since it's in MS I'm not sure I'll like it too much.

What an absurd comparison!

St. Paul: A wealthy, cultured, educated, progressive metro of 3.6 million.

Versus what??? A small town of 12,000 in a backward state???

Why not then compare Seattle with Vicksburg?

Moderator cut: personal attack

Some people might like the slower pace of small-town living. To each his own.

BTW, I've lived in Mississippi for a couple of years a while back. It's not as bad as it's made out to be.

St. Paul by far. If I ever do get bored, Mpls is literally next to St. Paul. Living in the sticks of Mississippi just doesn't do it for me. I actually like snow. St. Paul has the winter carnival and other things. I need things to do and St. Paul has alot more to do than Picayune. For a city of St. Paul's size, it isn't that dangerous. I have all of the major league sports I can get my hands one(3 of them in Mpls, one in St. Paul). The Twin Cities in general just has more to do. For anyone that likes fishing, there are many lakes(real lakes, not reservoirs) within Minneapolis and St. Paul. Minnesota isn't called the land of 10,000 lakes for nothing.

Who would voluntarily live in Mississippi when they have the choice for St. Paul?
