  •  So that's like the choice between (5+ / 0-)

    Dante's sixth and seventh circles...

    I love California... from Santa Barbara to the north, and skipping over the Central Valley.  One of the best years of my life was the one I spent in Berkeley.

    The six months I was in Glendale, however, were damn near close to hell on earth.

    So far in this life I've been lucky to have gotten no closer to Dallas than the Dallas-Fort Worth airport.  If my luck holds, I'll make it to the end with my record intact.

    •  Glendale is an armpit -- and a hot one in summer! (7+ / 0-)

      Yeah, there are places in Cali that suck, but overall, with the mountains, ocean, progressive state politics (Orange County aside), and the best state university system in the world, it's a comparative paradise -- and the hyper-libertarians and Teabaggers are welcome to move to Tejas or Somalia if they don't like it.

      •  There is a Glendale, TX, too. (4+ / 0-)

        Also an armpit.  Glendale is right down the road from Jasper (home of the lynching of James Byrd, Jr. by dragging him behind a pickup truck in 1998).  Steve Stockman is the newly-elected representative in the U.S. House for both Glendale and Jasper.
