Reliapundit,
I'd rather spend time in Seattle anyday, and so, I would imagine, would you, considering you live in NY.

What are you, demagoguing?

Seattle is one of the most beautiful cities in the United States, and book stores and art galleries, and interesting people abound.

I dare you to move to Pittsburgh, Mr. N'Awlins.

:)

pasto -

i had a broad in pitssburgh, and visited her and the city many times.
i loved both.

pittsburgh is actually VERY VERY hi-tech.
and very beautiful.

the list is tongue and cheek.

(seattle is nice too - except that they're all commies dove appeasers.)

I understood that it was tongue in cheek, but I had to needle you anyway.

I didn't know Pittsburgh was beautiful. It has been many moons since I've been there. But, are you sure you weren't just seeing the reflection of Pittsburgh in her eyes?

;-)
