She was on section 8 like many others in the neighborhood and she had mice. The ne side is not perfect; perrin beitel is starting to develop a reputation for drugs and gun violence.

Gee, we started having a discussion about the pros and cons what distinguishes SA from Austin. Now, we're attacking each other for having an opinion about their personal experiences on what side of town is best for them. I can just hear the laughter coming from those from the Austin forum.

Here's my 2 cents: Austin is not as liberal as people think. SA is not as conservative as people think (despite some of the bigoted posts on the SA forum). Just because we have come into the 21st century with smoking bans, benefits for domestic partners of city workers, "discussions" of metro rails, etc., still does not mean we should be comparing ourselves to our Route 35 counterparts. Everyone already knows Austin is a younger, fitter, wealthier, more educated city. This is nothing new. Statistically, SA is still one of the fattest, dumbest, major cities in America. I'm not disrespecying SA, just stating the facts. You know what? I still love it here. If I want to go to Austin, I'll just drive an hour up Route 35. No big deal. I like Austin. Please, though, don't panic just because SA is coming into the 21st Century. Austin and SA are still apples and oranges. Respect SA for the good things it has to offer. I know I have ranted in the past on how "ghetto" it is becoming, but I wouldn't be upset about it if I didn't care about it. So, relax everyone. SA is not becoming Austin lite.

Nothing factual at all to what your claiming.

Austin is more educated than SA, Houston and Big D, the big three have about the same perecentage of college graduates. As far as being wealthier and more fit, Austin is in the same boat, the obesity index is not much lower at all. Wealth wise S.A. and Austin have comprable per capita incomes, S.A. is more affordable, so it would have a higher disposable income. So in essence their pretty much equal wealth wise. There is more wealth in Houston and Dallas.

You can't really go by per capita income because there could be huge wealth disparity. A place with a lot of extremely wealthy people and really poor people can have the same per capita income as a place with a lot of middle income residents. The median income is more telling.

Austin supposedly has the higher median family income of all Texas cities. I wonder how they caculate that. The 2010 metro personal income for SA is more than 13 Billion dollars more than metro Austin, up from 11 billion in 2009. An that is compaing a similar size total workforce. If anything San Antonio is more middle class. Poverty rates, SA is slightly higher than Austin, but not by a whole lot.
