I don't really like the title, because I only think it captures part of the nature of the article, but it made you look, didn't it?
Personally, I've enjoyed my experiences in cities quite a lot, and find them much more stimulating and enjoyable than small towns or rural areas. I find it unfortunate that Americans have seemingly undervalued and neglected urban areas for as long as they have.
What do you all think?
What bothers me most is that the whole home mortgage interest deduction thing exists and that there is no equivalent for those of us that will likely NEED to rent. I don't really buy into the whole suburban living thing, I couldn't physically keep up a house and lawn of my own if I wanted to, and I'm dealing with a government that endorses this sort of living scenario (and therefore implying that the sort of housing arrangement I will most likely end up in is somehow less deserving). In a nutshell, I'm paying for people to live in a manner that I do not have the ability to, and this arrangement seems unique to the country I currently reside in and am unlikely to be able to leave.
