Go West, Young Man: Reflections on Oakland By a Transplanted Chicagoan

24 07 2014

It’s a big, left-leaning city with a diverse population and an emerging gentry class, so it’s the same as Chicago more or less. The people are basically the same, because cosmopolitanism and humans being the same. It’s not as segregated, because Chicago is the most segregated. The people don’t seem to be as funny, because I’m new here and haven’t met a lot of people. It’s dirtier because Chicago has alleys. You have to drive couches and stuff to the dump. There are several areas of life that are made alternatively more and less complicated because it is a city in a different state, and thus a different legal regime pertains and patterns people’s behaviors.

This is dumb people shouldn’t write things like this.
