    I have a thing for Atlanta.

    I have always had a soft spot for Grand Rapids. Even the ghettos are tree lined. The Eastown area where Ford lived is spectacular, as is Heritage Hills.

    If I could live anywhere, it would probably be San Diego. Just lived it the two times I was there in the navy.

    I understand you. The city is built weirdly. As much as I like Atlanta even I find the way it was built to be awkward. Like they just stopped building and the city is incomplete.

    Don't get me wrong, it's got a beautiful skyline and there's lots of attractions. I think that incompleteness you feel when you are getting from one side to the other is that there's just so much sprawl. And it does seem like there's more freeway than destination.

    Maybe they had "appletini goggles" on when they were whistling at us.

    All places have. Chicago is no longer famous for it.

    Really?

    All in all wall street and the financial world are by far the biggest and worst crooks in the world, and the biggest financial city in the world after London, happens to be New York. That makes it far more criminal than Los angeles and certainly more than Chicaco, who mostly thrive on solid legitimate businesses.

    Of large cities, nothing beats NY city. It's awesome and has it all. Upper West Side would be my choice location.
