I guess what I am trying to get at is have you actually ever been outside of SA or the state of Texas?
If you've honestly been to those locations, you can't honestly and seriously sit there and assert that the population characteristics of those cities are anything like that of San Antonio's.

And I'll leave it at that.

These are the types of people that ask you a question, not because they want an answer, but because they want an opportunity to tell you what the correct answer is.

There's something called "character"... that is much more relevant than some of the labels we try to shelf people in. I'd rather go have tacos off the roach coach with a poor man who's missing 9 teeth, than someone who's "got it all together", but is like a puzzle in box; complete but not whole.

This concludes today's program.
It's because that's such an anomoly here. I mean, it really is. If I'm shopping at HEB (you know, the major near-monopolizing grocery chain in a city of 1.2 million), and happen across a well dressed, good looking, well put-together person, I honestly stare. That's how uncommon it is, atleast for me to come across.

I've never stopped and looked twice at such individuals in other cities I've lived in, and certainly not in large cities.

So just go to photobucket and upload a pic. I'm sure I speak for several of us on here--we'd sure like to live up to your standard--we just need a frame of reference.

Where did I assert? I simply stated I have observed the characteristics in those cities, the same characteristics you are using to negatively portray San Antonio.

I have a sincere question for you about this. When you say "shopping at HEB" and "well dressed", can you give me an example of what you would consider that to entail? Cause honestly, I never get "dressed up" for grocery shopping. It's jeans and a t-shirt for me. I hate to even go there in "work clothes". ugggggglllll..... I could understand lamenting the fact that SA being a very casual city, most folks don't even dress up for a night out on the town. But HEB???? (Again, this is not a combative comment, just asking what your opinion of appropriate dress for grocery shopping would be.)

I only see dressing up to go to the grocery store, or get the mail in Dallas.
