I won't defend Philadelphia at all. Well just a bit as the city doeas have an interesting history and things to see that, to an oldester such as myself, mean something.
Phoenix is an altogether seperate animal. It is exactly
like Los Angeles but lacks the beaches.Sadly I remember Phoenix as a nice city and, worse yet to me, Tucson as beautiful. Except, of course, for Speedway Boulevard. Tucson has become a pit, Phoenix the cesspool.
I wonder if, in 20 years, I'll hate all of the Sonoran desert? A bunch of city folk, complete with SUVs (which they would never
drive through 6 inches of water) have invaded the base of my mountain. Soon these vermin will decide that living at 5000 feet is better than 2600 and their, as is said, goes the neighborhood. Until the day they can live up here without water, sewer and cable, they should stay in the confines of the city. Leave the sticks to those who can survive.
Oops. Ranting again, aren't I?
I hate Phoenix though.
The day you stop learning is the day you should die.
