    All large cities have the same problems, including Tokyo. But none are anywhere near as bad as NY when it comes to this disease. What gives?

    I've been cleaning house. Blind partisans on both sides are now being blissfully ignored. It's much easier to talk to the reasonable people when the noise is filtered out.

    I live in a small town of about a little over 5k residents. It's that kind of town where everyone knows everyone. IE: family and friend oriented. So no need to worry about it....

    Outlawing wouldn't be necessary .. just some kind of liability clause to renting or purchasing within city limits. IOW - you accept that you will be 'locked in' in the event of...

    Dude. The H1N1 Swine Flu killed ~12500 Americans over the course of a year. We will probably get to that point within ~10 days.

    One can live in the country on the coasts as well. The idea is to get away from the cities. I remember when I lived in a 12th floor apartment in the near north side of...
