It's a given that city magazines are boosterish, but this story takes a pretty stern look at our town. Here's a quote: "The city doesn't sit on the cutting edge [sic] of anything — not art, not music, not architecture, not politics. We possess few corporate headquarters, we're not a technology hub, and by the time fashion trends work their way here from the coasts, the same clothes are often found languishing on the clearance racks in New York and Los Angeles."Life is not worth living.

Ha! Call the waaaaahmbulance!
