I am glad I read these posts. Just looking at the map I was thinking that this should be an ideal location since you have access to 3 large airports and booming city centers. As long as you don't mind driving 45 minutes to reach your destination.

Blue kid trapped in a red state kinda fits for me.
Perfect! Me and my new big, Ford turbo diesel will fit right in.

Blue kid? More like an intollerant liberal elitist. You think anyone can afford anything? Tell you what, lets swap houses and see what song you are singing after paying $2300 a month for a 60 year old 1500sf ranch house in CT with $6000 per year in property taxes and another $2500 per year on vehicles and work equipment.

You do not have an understanding about the First Amendment. It is not for "private meetings", it's for expressing yourself in PUBLIC. If you don't like what people are saying, say something yourself. It's that simple.

Yea I think this whole "central location being convenient" thing is being sold to many and many people have bought into it. I mean ya, you arent 2 hrs from one city and hours and hours from others, but its still very hard to deal with in its own way as well. I don't mind living IN one city now and being 45 from another. Not a biggie, but when your in a smaller town/exurb with no city right in your backyard and 40 minutes to all, then its a big problem.
