  •  Where you live also has to do with CHANGE. (5+ / 0-)

    Urban areas exemplify change. Of course, some of us resist some of it, but there is an inevitability to urban renewal and refreshment. Like having to move around a lot (my career required several transfers from area to area), urbanity requires realistic adaptation.

    Sure, rural areas change, too, but it looks to me like the pace of change is slower, considerably slower, if not less inevitable. And my good friends in suburban areas who haven't moved out of the first home they lived in as a couple tend - tend - to live in intellectually gated communities.

    As marketers have known for decades, where you live has a great deal to do with who you are and what your preferences are in everything from consumer goods to politics.

    I'm just sayin'.
