  •  Thai food might actually be cheaper in (5+ / 0-)

    "expensive" urban areas - do to the probability that there are multiple purveyors thereof (thus leading to competition that keeps the price down in a way that might not happen in an rural area).

    But still, that does not make up for the 900 pound gorilla in the room - for example, one is going to have to save a whole shitload of money on cheaper Thai food to make up for having to pay $3,000 per month vs. $1,000 per month for a mortgage on basically the same house.
