I grew up in rural/suburbia...NEVER going back!
We'll just have to agree to disagree.
I may be in a dubious area but its mostly filled with good people who share the same outlook on life.
Not to mention, we can actually afford to live here. Although when the New Year's Eve firework is supplemented with rounds, I sometimes wonder.
Plus, the way you guys make it sound, I just have to stick it out here and all the problems will be going out to the burbs.
(I was trying for a smiley face but its not coming up.)
