Thank you. I'm in my mid-thirties and I most everyone I know is in their mid-thirties and pushing 40, and we all still live in apartments, or condos if we've managed to scrap together the cash to buy a place (I'm still working on that), sometimes even with kids, I only know one person who has a detached home, and it is a small bungalow style home that is probably 1500-2000 square feet. Not everyone wants the big house, and not everyone is willing to move where they'd have to to get it. Not to mention, not everyone can. I know some cops (and they are doing what they love), and part of their job requirements state that they must actually live in the city they work in, they can't run off to the exurb at night after a day on the job.

Calm down, msjbrent! We're all free to like one place better than the other.

I love New York City and would never ever move to Alabama, but this Southern folk likes it better down there and there's no reason to attack his choice.

In the city or in the country- free, happy and respectful of each other.

C'mon!

No- he orignally attacked ME with a 21 page response. All I ever said was someone stating that no one is getting ahead in Boston and NYC. I said that is not a fact but your opinion. Now your attacking me? LOL. All anyone is about here is all about there opinions and bitching and complaining.

All I originally said was Lower Alabama was not a good place for a business since Ivan. Period. Then the hillbilly wrote a book.
