Nah, it doesn't. Albuquerque still has bone-chilling winters (at night). Yes, her clear skies and lots of sun will mean snow doesn't stick around too long, still a lot of snow falls. According to Wikipedia, Albuquerque averages 10" of snowfall a year.

Any climate that we talk about as "warm" should at least not have measurable snow every year.

Knowingly exposing others to HIV will no longer be a felony in California - LA Times

The CDCs take on the issue.

Right wing fear mongering? I don't have to be a right winger (which I am not) to be cheesed off at that law change. Honestly, I am a gay man and no one should be more upset about that law more than gay men since we are the most vulnerable. Intentionally spreading HIV to someone is attempted murder and it's ridiculous for a state to treat it as anything less.

Also not sure what those links are trying to prove. I know what the law change is. And it's ridiculous. And the fact liberals in California are calling it "progress" is a tell-tale sign of how out of touch they are.

Dallas, Atlanta and Charlotte have measurable snow every year with the exception of unusually warm winters, but I would not call them anything but warm cities. Albuquerque may be colder but I don't think we should rule out a city just cuz it snows one or twice a year either.

No its a tell-tale sign of how slow the rest of you are.

But not to worry, we will continue to drag this country kicking and screaming into the future.

Aside Silicon Valley/SF.....which cities in California are thought of as intellectual hotspots?

As of 2010...California claimed two spots in the top 10 metros (of the 100 largest MSAs) in the US for educational attainment (as SF and Silicon Valley are considered two separate metros)....and 5 of the BOTTOM 10 (Fresno, Stockton, Modesto, Riverside, Bakersfield).

California was the first state on the mainland to institute racism against Asian Americans. Then there is the fact that California just implemented a major increase on a regressive tax that will disproportionately hurt the poor.

Knowingly spreading a disease to other people should be a felony. It doesn’t currently stigmatize all people with HIV-it stigmatizes people with HIV who purposely gives HIV to others. And it should. Especially considering how difficult it is to be transmitted, based on your links.

I completely agree. The first time I read that, I did a double-take. Unbelievable.

Raleigh/Durham, Charleston, Seattle, Minneapolis/St. Paul. Just be careful about being too enamoured about "intellectual" and "sophisticated". Many times, they can aren't assets (ie pretentiousness, snobbish, values "education" over wisdom, etc.). Not all places, just a few too many.
