The question leaps to the keyboard: Why do you live there? We came here for the jobs (we both worked at a then unknown cable channel called HGTV.) After 5 years (her) and 3 years (me) we retired, bought an RV and toured the country. By then we had a house, friends, etc.Frankly, we got used to the weather, we found a few friends (some of whom we had hired and moved here), and life wasn't (isn't) so bad. While we live in one of the most Conservative parts of the state, it's possible to find intelligent life, you just have to look harder, and not get depressed by the astonishing ignorance which so regularly smacks you in the face (google: Stacey Campfield, for instance).If we had children who were affected by the horrible schools, or were otherwise impacted by the retrograde politics we would move (and we talk about it anyway) but we're older now and moving comes harder. And anyway, where would we go and keep the weather? Asheville, NC? It's a pocket in an otherwise retrograde state. Austin, TX? Better, but worse.So here we are. (We have a condo we rent out in Boston, so every two years or so we get to go up there for a month or three and live in Back Bay among the literate. Then we come back to the land of big hair and bad teeth and talk about moving again, but we never seem to have the energy.)
