I doubt too many people outside of Texas even know about Denton.
I always enjoyed the area too. Call me crazy but I also really like that area between Forth Worth and Denton (West of I-35W, much less developed than East of I-35W) ... that ranch within the city feeling you can only get in Texas. However, I think that area North of town is still growing very rapidly - it was the perfect size around ten years ago. (I have close friends right in that area)

I have lots of friends in/from Denton - it's got a bit of culture due to the great music program at the university, but most people I know moved eventually to DFW or Austin. It seems to be a good place to go to college or be young, but there isn't much to do there ultimately. It's a small town!

OH Jeeze Edith.....
Don'tcha have the cognitive skills to comprehend that Republican/Conservative states and cities have a more restrained sensibility with regards to their taxpayer's hard earned money? OPEN YOUR MIND.

But I have to mention, we went to the most incredible late summer Blues/R&B music festival in Cinci one August - Just an incredible line-up of talent, plus delicious food booths and artisan beers....the city also has some amazing historical buildings and areas like the oldest continuous outdoor Market in the U.S.

Back to the cost of living thing, it is NOT inexpensive to live in that area. On either side of the river. Everything is high there, especially property tax. For the condition of the streets, etc. I am highly suspicious of just where the people's taxes go back there.....

Default Very well put

Not trying to digress but, LOL. "...elitist mentality, and uber-pretentiousness..." You really made me smile with that. Very good description of, um, certain lost voters in our country today.
