    Burlington, VT, is a real uncelebrated hero, even if its weather isn't so great all the time. It's certainly better than Asheville.

    It came down to New York or Chicago for me.

    Chicago.

    Chicago is the greatest city in the US. Greatest most intelligent people, greatest businesses(compare actual valuable labour with wall street crooks), nicest city.

    I would say every American should be most proud of Chicago to represent them in the world.

    Neither over rated New York crooktown or scum attraction Los Angeles crime hole(because of worlds biggest income differences) can compete with that.

    Are you being serious? Chicago most certainly has crooks and corruption both in the private companies and in their government. It's a cesspool for crime and corruption.

    If our values included glorifying the Mafia and corruption then I guess we should be most proud of Chicago. My dad is from Chicago and I have family that live there, it's a hell hole off the coast of Lake Michigan.

    New York is over rated, but I would say it's less crooked than Chicago. Los Angeles is a crime hole like Chicago, but it's not much better. Chicago has it's history and "good" things, but overall it's a terrible city. I seriously wouldn't want the world to view Chicago as our model city.

    In all seriousness, which parts of Chicago have you been to that are that bad? Seriously. Give me street names. I've lived here for my whole life and never encountered this mythical Chicago you are talking about.

    BTW, you do know the mafia stuff is from the 30's right? Generally, the first sign that somebody doesn't really know **** about Chicago is that they mention the mob. Just sayin'.

    I'm kinda partial to Boystown. Especially down around Sheffield.

    Other: None.

    Expansion: I don't like cities/towns, and wouldn't want to live in one, unless it was really small.

    Perhaps max pop of 250-500?

    Large cities, IMO, are something that needs to be done away with.

    And, yes, I am at least partially serious.

    What would you do with all the people if you did away with large cities?

    Spread em' out somehow, I haven't thought it through.

    Why I said "partially" serious.

    Iím too lazy to do much thinking today.
