    The Aurora I know and "love" is the one in CO where that gunman did his Star Wars thing. Or The Dark Knight, I forget.





    Anyway, it's a soulless hellhole of middle level managers and code monkeys from defense firms. Just think of Office Space.

    Aurora, CO, was also the city for Columbine HS.

    Columbine is in Littleton, toward the southwest of metro Denver.

    Aurora is far east metro Denver.

    Most of these are indeed pretty boring and/or sh*tty. COS, Arlington, and (surprisingly) Omaha are actually a lot better than the stereotype, but still fairly conservative, yes.

    Conspicuously missing from the con list - Ft. Worth (they vigorously enforce their vagrancy laws)

    Because when I think "best" cities, these 4 are definitely in my Top 10.

    Conspicuously missing from the lib list - Chicago, Portland

    My brother lives in Oakland. It's f-cking paradise. But, you know, blacks, so middle America says "ew! A-scurred!"

    Buffalo threw me, though. Not at all my idea of a liberal city.
