Why would you be wasteful and selfish when you can live in the city instead?
Jaclyn-never say never - let's check back in 10 years
Of course, there has to be a post by some antisuburbs yahoo. Both the suburbs and city have their draws. Believe it or not, you can't really have one without the other. Also, check back with these people in 10 years like a previous poster said. When you're close to 40 with 3 kids, living near "everything" really isn't that important. Life becomes less about you and your entertainment options.
Hey, antisuburbs, get your head on straight--living in the city is hip when you're young, right up to the point where you have kids or you get mugged (or worse) and then suddenly the youthful naivete melts away to cold, hard reality about what American cities really are. It's not wasteful or selfish to want to live a certain way, it's just a leftist, controlling attitude that prevents you, and people like you from understanding that we all have the right to decide how best to live our lives. It's basic common sense, but Americans don't have much of it. You can have all the cities.
Yeah wait till this smiling girl discovers the real difference between the burbs and the cities. Crime in the city: shoplifting at the local Wal-Mart. Crime in the city: taking a bullet from the crackhead from the drug house down your street (there's one on every block) who murders you while stealing your bike for his next fix. We tried the city (Minneapolis) for a year and we've had it. Back to the burbs for us.
Let them educated types try and live in the cities. If I want to see a movie, I don't have to go to the Guthrie to see it. A mall theater is good enough for me. We Real Americans will live where it's fresh and clean and there are no welfare people. Besides, my disability check goes much further in the burbs than it would in some city. To each their own.

Gunflint, I can only assume that your post is a complete joke. The Guthrie shows plays, not movies, unless you count the recordings of the NT Live shows that are shown a couple of times a year.
Not to mention there are a LOT of welfare recipients in outstate Minnesota. Plus a disability check from the government is welfare.
yay, for city living! Not so much antisuburb, just pro-good living!
Oh gosh, here we go again. It is amazing how many people can't grasp that just because someone makes a different decision about were to live, that doesn't make them an idiot, selfish, or just plain wrong. You can't have suburbs without a city, and believe it or not, you can't have a thriving city without the suburbs. Grow up, people.
Live in the city...sure just NOT in the Twin Cities. Let me list the reasons why...cost of EVERYTHING is higher, concrete jungle with small city lots, apartments are tiny by industry standards but rents are thru the roof, CRIME is at an all time high, gangs, more pollution, poor air quality, traffic jams, people are rude, horrible school system, higher taxes, poor infrastructure i.e. roads and bridges...the list goes on and on but hey city livings where it's at! Sure if you want to pay more for EVERYTHING, breathe in lower quality air, risk the chance of being mugged or shot and if you have a family send your kids to schools loaded with the WRONG element then GO FOR IT!
