Dear Denise, 

and others whose geography I've insulted.

Someone made a point about the indisputable nature of taste. I have to
agree. Just because I or someone else doesn't like a place isn't
important. Frankly, I like the weather in Northern
Wisconsin/Minnesota/Ontario/Manitoba and would rather live in that area
but I'm stuck here. Just because I hated Texas doesn't mean everyone else
wouldn't just LOVE the place. It is my opinion, which is free, and worth
what people paid for it.
