Closer to DC, distance-wise. And metro-accessible. I tend to be hell on the highway and avoid driving to Baltimore.<br><br><br><br>
Besides, Baltimore smells. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

I totallily forgot that CP had a Metro stop. Der.<br><br><br><br>
Baltimore smells, but what's worse to live in - the smell of industrial waste or the smell of political poo?

Hehe... But what about when the "debris" is "bullets" and the "gonorhea" is "the vacuous emptiness of a city completely void of character and soul" ?

Hey now! DC has soul. It's not flamboyant like New Orleans or LA, but it definetely has a distinctive feel to it. There's something very warm going on. I don't know, I'm loyal to DC. I like fending for my life. I'm used to it. I'd get bored without gunshots and empty neighborhoods.

I don't know how you got me attacking DC <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> because I actually do like DC for the most part. It's not a city - more like a tightly-knitted group of 'hoods around a federal center. Sure, some of those 'hoods are empty or filled with scum, but some are also Adams Morgan, U Street/Cardoza, Dupont, and so on. Those rock.<br><br><br><br>
I do prefer real cities, though. with tall buildings... distinctive downtown districts... a feeling of local culture and personality. DC is too transient to have that going on.

I'm in Baltimore City. Yah, it's got smells for sure like Domino Sugar Refinery - nothing smells quite like caramelized sugar in the morning, then there's the GAF asphalt shingle plant across the harbor that sends that lovely odor over my way around dinner time. But you gotta love a neighborhood full of people that have been here for 40 years, that wave when you drive down the street or say hi if you're out walking the dogs. Let's not forget the sounds of kids running for the soft serve ice cream truck that comes around every evening at 7:30. I did several years in Annapolis and around Annapolis, and I did a little time in PG County. Every place has it low points...

I'm in Harford County, out past Bel Air (about 20 minutes NE of Baltimore, up I-95).<br><br><br><br>
And yes, Ballmer smells, but I love it anyway, hon.
