I don't know what those weird rings are around city A, but I don't want any of it.

I believe the simple truth is that they became somewhat alarmed when they realized that I really meant to write what I believed. There is a peculiar parallel between some of our great Northern "liberals" and some of our outstanding Southern liberals.

Some of the people in both classes share the deep-seated convictions that only their convictions can possibly be the right ones. They both inevitably say the same thing: "We know the Negro and what is best for him."

I'm fairly confident that it's going to be City B, but do you happen to have a better zoomed in shot of City A? I can't really see what's going on there.

After a little fancy internetting, I know what the two cities are.  Obviously A is the "better" city, but I still think I'd rather chose B.

Yeah, it wasn't too difficult to determine what City B is. It took a little more creativity to determine what City A was, though. Anyway, I agree with your assessment, A is the better city, but I'd rather live in B.

I instantly knew A but I can't seem to put a finger on B. Regardless, A is much more appealing for a number of reasons.

So it is between Minneapolis (City A) and Phoenix (City B)?  I'll choose Minneapolis, then.

My earlier comment notwithstanding, I do think that the site would be better off if Inks left his position. (The fact that the village idiot has dropped in to express his support for him only confirms this.)

That is NOT Minneapolis, but now that I know city B is what it is I wish I did create all those false accounts for Vermont against New Hampshire that I threatened so I could use them against one of my least favorite cities of all time.

You're half right.

Me too....well, sort of.  My first assumption was actually the right one, then I convinced myself it wasn't right.

I knew city A from sight, and didn't know city B, but suspected it was one of those mid-sized metroploisises in the US sunbelt, so...voted for A.

Correct decision.

Who the hell wants to live in Phoenix ? Or in a desert in general ? You have to be mad.

Therefore A) for Amsterdam.

Yes. That would be obvious - at least, obvious as an option -  to anyone who knows anything about Amsterdam (besides "they have weed and hookers", I mean).

If I'm shown as having been active here recently it's either because I've been using the gallery, because I've been using the search engine looking up something from way back, or because I've been reading the most excellent UK by-elections thread again.

I voted city A before reading the thread. Quite happy with my choice. I wasn't sure if B was Denver or Phoenix, so I decided to take the gamble. If I knew that B was Denver I wouldn't come to a definite conclusion.
