GAH! I really didn't want to bring the pictures out an bore all these nice people! Darn, I had tried really hard to be a better representation of the city, but i got tied up in the arguement too and turned into another blatant Omaha nerd.

It really is easy to do when you are met with a lot of people who are too glued to their preconceptions of a city like Omaha. Oh well, here's to hoping my next discussion goes better. I'm not giving up the fight!

Wrong, incorrect, as the French, Spanish and Italians say, no, and nope. When did I ever say any of that? EVER?
I'm in highschool

Worse yet but I suspected it.

We also have the Mystic Marine Life Aquarium nearby. And nearby Springfield, MA has the Basketball Hall of Fame. And in nearby New Haven we also have Yale University and the original Frank Pepe's Pizza and Sally's Pizza on Wooster Street. So there...

It's so sad that posters can be banned for posting copyrighted material but not for telling blatant and proven lies and misrepresenting themselves.

At any rate, it all makes sense now. It's too bad one immature high school student has ruined people's impressions of Omaha.

Thank you! I too believe the so-called "Rust Belt" is the next big thing. I put my money where my mouth is and moved to Pittsburgh last year and now I'm buying a house, one that would cost upwards of 200k almost anywhere else worth living. I got it for 1/4 of that. I've never been to Detroit (or MI, one of only 6 states I've never visited), but once I get over the Stanley Cup, I'm sure I'll make the 4.5 hour drive and check it out. I heard Detroit might be the next Omaha!

Incidentally, Pittsburgh is about to become a Gamma World City on account of it having 4 of the tallest buildings between Philly and Cleveland. Next up, the Olympics!

Creepsinc. Check the Pittsburgh board. A good string is going on the subject of the western PA economy. Overall it is in better shape than most of the country.

Yeah, I've heard that. It's the consolation prize for missing out on the 80s, 90s and early aughts. I'll take it, though.
