Craptastic! Posted On: 9/7/2009 1:27:11 PM
Now I can wait for the Ivy League elites to let me know I'm beneath them because "craptastic" isn't a word and only the most brilliant can really appreciate all that is Boston. Well, Boston is a great place to visit and a lousy place to live. (Boston is similar to Chicago on that regard.)
Go to Boston and enjoy the history, the decent food, Fenway and a little culture--and enjoy teasing the snobs while you're at it. Then leave it all behind. The locals are generally a joyless bunch of hard Left, over-educated twits who pride themselves on voluntarily being overtaxed and underserved. That's just the way utopias should be. Everyone should be equally miserable and they better like it.
If you must live in New England and if you must work in Boston, get as far out as you can while still being able to tolerate the commute.
