Salt Lake has tons more character and vibrancy in its downtown then more then one soulless sunbelt boomburb and more then one shriveled rust belt "city".

Heck,
the City itself is quite progressive and actually a lot of fun. And the natural beauty of those majestic mountains-gorgeous.

Anyway my 2 cents on Salt Lake.

Cool It's so lame? What do you mean...boring? Stupid? Ignorant?

The word "lame" is so 1990's. I was in Indy once on business when I was in my twenties. That was a long time ago. It was OK. What's the big deal? I have never lived in a small city. I would consider Indi a small city, not a town or anything. I've lived in Detroit, Chicago and Minneapolis. They're large cities. I have also lived in Rochester, NY. It wasn't "lame". Without checking, aren't they about the same size?

Is "lame" small? Is "lame" they don't get the culture? Is "lame" they don't get the politics? Is "lame" chain restaurants? Huh.

"Lame" is a lame word.

Salt Lake City itself is not bad, it is the people and their weird religious crap that screw everything up. I will never forget walking downtown Salt Lake City on a Sunday afternoon and everything is closed.

Well, everyone has their own place I suppose, and Utah just happens to be Mormon Country.

Agreeable up until about 7 years ago. It has come a long way. When did you visit last?

I there on a conference one year and every night we had a hard time feeling any of this vibrancy you're talking about. Outside a couple of ghetto malls downtown the streetscape was a mindless void. No shops, no interesting restaurants or bars or anything. Heck we tried to get food on a saturday night at around 9 and found nothing! We had to leave downtown and find a taco bell. Even shriveled rust belt cities have diners open till at least 3 or 4 in the morning. Mountains are great city is LAME

Does it not convey? It's 'lame' in its own right. Therefore, it's the perfect description.

Nashville,TN. It's a ghost of what it used to be. But it is still trying to show the world it's a shining star.
