I work 12 hour days. I guess as a Texan, I have more stamina.

...actually, I ride my bicycle past the memorial the Haymarket riots everyday, so that really wouldn't be much of a change in my commute.
Conventional wisdom doesn't seem to know what to do with Chicago. I've heave heard the city alternatively described as "quintessentially Midwest" and "Midwestern in geography only". (Don't quote me!)

Houston has been described as "unTexan" or "a city that happens to be in Texas."

How about N. America being divided into United States, the Confederate States of America, Canada, Newfoundland, Mexico and the Republic of Yucatan.

Northern VA is the new south? I have to disagree. I'd say it's part of the northeast, socioeconomically and culturally.

yes, but thanks to a little thing known as 'the labor movement', you didn't start doing so at age 10.

Joel Garreau, author of that book, is nothing but a load of hot air... he is good at coming up with buzzwords like "edge cities," which the media loves, but his geography is too fuzzy. The "empty quarter"-- give me a break! What was he smoking when he came up with that phrase? This is the great American West-- we are chock full of national parks, touristy towns, things to do-- and with the explosive development of cities like Phoenix, it ain't so empty out here either! There's another Joel out there, Joel Kotkin, who is a lot smarter, if you ask me. He's written a lot about America and urban geography.
