I'm floored--so many Abq dissenters in one place


Star Rating 8/26/2011
What a fascinating collection of malcontents all in one place--that there is such hatred for an eminently liveable and friendly city is truly extraordinary. I'm sure the sample size here is small and it is purely accidental that so many were so unhappy with what is an incredibly friendly and diverse city. There's clearly some ethno prejudice going on here--you folks clearly need to be in some midwest white-bread, conservative city or town to be happy. The Albuquerque I know is friendly, laid back, and pretty industrious all at the same time. Employers like Intel and Sandia Base among many other excellent employers wouldn't be there if Albuquerque was the place you describe. Albuquerque is a medium-sized city of over a half million--that many people can't be choosing to live there if they are unhappy with the place as most of you seem to be. I would hope any fair-minded reader here would seek out other sources before deciding whether to live or visit the charming "Duke City." But for you malcontents, I feel sorry for you--you're blind to a terrific place to live and work.
