There's got to be a party pooper on every thread; wrecking the flow. I will be that for this thread.
PITTSBURGH IS NOT A BLUE COLLAR CITY ANYMORE. Every time someone mentions the city on the news or in sports some ignorant announcer talks about how blue collar it is. It is not. It hasn't been for the last 20 years. We have less blue collar workers by percentage than most cities. Our economy has transitioned to education, health care and finance.
With that being said, some of the cities on my list may be attributed to stereotyping as well. Just thought I'd try to correct at least one of them.
