You'd rather live in Texas than Miami? Don't insult my hometown like that!!!

Sorry :( I'm not a fan of Florida, generally. As far as I can tell, it's where old people go to drive slowly, screw up elections, and live with too much sun and too many beaches. Nothing particular against Miami (other than the uncle I have on the police force there; he'd recommend against anyone moving there)...

So, some more precise language is needed. Austin over Florida, but Florida over Texas. I hear that Austin is a nice liberal oasis that somehow survives despite being found in the bowels of hell.

But the entire point is moot. I would rather live in NYC over either; and I would rather live in a coffin that was slowly sinking to the bottom of the sea than in NYC. OK. That might be hyperbolic. If I got a job teaching in Austin or NYC, I would gladly move there; if I got a job teaching in a coffin that was sinking to the bottom of the sea I would gladly move there, too.

I guess I've not really helped my case that I'm not hating on Miami. Damn. Third time today I've thoroughly inserted a foot in my mouth.

In conclusion, Miami might be fine, but it's just too located in Florida to escape my short list of places I hope never to live. That said, this is coming from someone who would like to live on an iceberg with a dog, no food, and a bunch of hungry bears. Take my opinions for what they're worth.
