Let me ask you a question:

What is your favorite thing about the town in which you live?

  1. For the most part, the people here are accepting of those different than themselves. Oh, don’t get me wrong…we have our share of bigots and idiots, but they are few and far between.

      • I’m trying to remember whether Galena, IL had more than one stop light when I lived there in the 70s. Galena, as you might guess from the name is an old lead mining town in the Northwest corner of IL. It also was the home town of U.S. Grant and the site of one of the Lincoln-Douglas debates. It was the largest city in the state before Chicago got going, but has been shrinking and quiet since the mines gave out and the river silted in after the Civil War.

      • Actually, I like small-medium size cities best. Galena was an escape from Chicago, and I wound up in Highlands because its where my parents retired to and I came to take care of my Dad in his last years. My favorite place I’ve lived was Santa Cruz, CA – right size, easy to get around, ocean, mountains, wild politics, and plenty of arts and music – alas, also ridiculous high rents + excitement in the form of earthquakes, droughts, floods, and wildfires, but no place is 100% perfect.

      • I don’t think so, not a whole city, at any rate, perhaps parts of some neighborhoods around universities could trend that way. Serious philosophy is not terribly fashionable these days (if ever).
