Definitely have to agree with you...I'm amazed at how people are mesmerized by the oak trees, open container laws, bicycles, and other nonsense... but don't see the obvious filth, excrements on the streets, poverty, etc etc...still trying to see how this city is European??? Amazed at how many restaurants serve really bad expensive food here...like the oak trees though ...

In the way that we preserve our culture, revel in the occult and the weird, and generally have a negative view of the average American.

Hey! Read the thread title! If you don't want to post something positive, start your own neg thread.

Every city has issues. If you want to discuss what you don't like, don't do it here.
