So you picked a snooze-fest town like Monroe and a town which is half university/hospital folks and half a war zone like Princeton. Solid comparison.

Princeton is a "war zone"??? I never thought it was a problem town and I have been there a number of times. I thought it was an upscale town. Then again any town with a major university will have some problems no matter what. Jay
