Pretty good interview. The Mayor paints a rosy picture of the local economy and it is one with which I agree. I like the fact that he described the city's economy as diversified. Which is true. He also mentioned the fact that San Antonio has challenges it must overcome. No it isn't a utopia but it's a fine place to live in my book.

Yep. There's no place in the world that DOESN'T have challenges. All in all, we're in a great place to live.

Very good interview. Yes San Antonio does have it's challenges, but recognizing them is the first big step to solving them. I think this city has a very bright future.

Yeah, but San Antonio's mayor is younger than Austin's. That absolutely, without-a-doubt, proves that we're more progressive. <grin>

As near as I can tell, there's some sort of inferiority complex between the two cities. It's a lot like Baltimore/DC, NY/Boston, LA/SF...it's entertaining but basically a waste of time and energy.
