The hidden secret inside every cynic, however, is romantic disappointment. It's a feeling that we could potentially redeem our lives if only we were more patient. The gap in our lives - between the life we live and the one we dream about - is crucial to every romantic's sense of integrity. We are better than the city we live in! At least, we tell ourselves that. In the meantime, we wait, patiently, biding our time. Will the city ever come to delight us again? Perhaps if we're patient....
This is a wrong approach to life in general. Life is a gift given to us and however it works out it still is a gift that we can be infinitely happy for. Thats why I enjoy the new waterfront development in Scottsdale, the exciting outlook for the Tempe town lake or the new ASU campus in downtown Phoenix. Also I enjoy the sunsets in Phoenix, watch the airplanes landing on Sky-Harbor, enjoy Korean food or enjoy observing the behavior of Mexican families going shopping at Walmart. This list is infinitely long, thus there is no chance to become even cynical or unhappy. These are little joys in life you should cherish. If you follow that approach you will see Phoenix in a completely different way. Congratulations, you are living in a great city! Good night from your neighbor in the South and

Phoenix is great place to live cuz of cheaper real estate for own nice house.
But that don't mean shit once you actually bought the house. Where are you gonna work? Are your kids gonna have nice schools to go to? Where can I go to get groceries? What cable companies are around here? Thatd be retarded to move into a place without considering things like that.

How can Scottsdale have a waterfront?? Do man made waterfronts really count? San Diego has giant container ships, fishing boats, and aircraft carriers moving about in its bay and out into the open ocean. Scottsdale has a glorified golf course water hazard as its waterfront. Oh well, I guess you have to make do.

Denver had 41C yesterday while Las Vegas hit 47C the day before, both equalling their all-time record temperatures. I've heard that parts of the Great Plains/Rockies have actually seen records broken!

Personally, I'd pay more for the coast, I could not stand the heat, SF gets too hot sometimes for me. I have to admit though, the desert is beautiful in it's own way. I prefer the wet weather, Seattle, SF, etc.

I'd love to see Arizona, perhaps spend a night in the desert camping. That would be a blast.

Because actual heat that corresponds with the temperature is a lot cooler than low 90s bumped by a humid-index.
