All right, all you hyper-urbanites, here's your chance to ask about anything you wanted to know about life in the suburbs. Do we all stop in to the driving range on the way to play tennis? Is there a Starbucks and Gap in every back yard beside our swimming pools? Is Applebees or Chiles our most favorite restaurant ever?

Fire away with your questions. I won't be insulted, and you don't need to be afraid of the scary white guy in the button-up shirt.

Isn't it eerily silent at night without the soothing sounds of gunfire?
Is the grass really greener?
I've read about these mythical celestial objects called stars. Do they really exist?

Do you really like the food at Chili's and Applebee's or just eat there b/c it's all you have? Or just don't know what good food tastes like?

No sounds of gun fire, well where i live
The grass is greener well for those who have it.
In Albuquerque you can see the stars everynight no matter what, we dont have a bad smog/polution problem, were the 9th cleanest city in air quality!

Hell ya i love the food, we have all kinds of other places to eat too! Quiznos, McDonalds, Bostons pizza, and a tons of other places,..eating out is my thing

Golf and tennis is a suburban thing and in newer albuquerque subdivisions there are fields and parks everywhere, even doggie parks Adults often play football or soccer with their children at these fields, often there is also lots of playground equipment

Why do people in the burbs enjoy being "peeping toms?" they probably would be shot in the ghetto.
