I personally am annoyed by bikers and their sense of entitlement, you can't expect to have all of the benefits of both a pedestrian and a vehicle. I think Lexington is bike friendly, there are many bike lanes and many more being developed, and it's the bikers with an attitude that are the root of the problem IMO. They ought to form a gang with leather jackets and "Irish tom" as the ring leader.

Complaining about the churches and creation museums in the same post? How may we satisfy you?

I agree that Lexington is not the urban environment you may desire, but others like family environments, burbs, and being surrounded by beautiful horse and farm land. I love Kentucky basketball and couldn't care less for the Chicago Cubs. What entertainment do you find in an hours drive that you don't find in Lex? The IMAX?

I agree that Lexington doesn't have everything as it is not a giant city, but it is growing, prospering, and developing facilities and amenities that the community desires.

So the honest answer to your question, JBennet, is no you should not reconsider moving to Lexington unless the type of community Lexington offers does not suit you. Lexington is a great town, good jobs, low crime, great communities and families. As with any city, it is what you make of it - you can find any niche you wish to fit into (Although there are no biker gangs yet). Richmond and Georgetown are good cities as well. I would also suggest Danville and Centre college - depends on what you are looking for.

Note the unsophisticated nature of the program which cannot formulate a rational argument but argues by mere contradiction and vehement assertion.
No Tom, you're the "unsophisticated" one. I'm not the one that complains and cries like a baby about everything under the sun.

The program equates not liking Lexington with disliking "everything under the sun". Like I said, not very sophisticated.

Churches and a creation museum are part and parcel.

Wow, you are sophisticated. I think you may actually be too high class for the Kentucky boards, it may be best if you stick with your sophisticated brethren on the Chicago boards.
