    Weird, not sure we've met so not sure how you could generalize me. Does that mean that Ames is just a bunch of drunk college kids?

    I'm sure theres just a small amount of hyperbole in there, but you could find a lot of places worse to live than W. Des Moines. Sure there are a lot of cookie cutter type neighborhoods with a Land Rover or Mercedes in the driveway, but there are also a lot of older, more established neighborhoods, like where I live. Good schools, good roads, low crime rate.

    I'm sure there is some sarcasm there....but why do people think WDM is all money? Plenty of areas that are just plain middle class. Valley Junction?

    I like Valley Junction, I rented a house there for a while...I'm just sayin it's part of WDM and it ain't preppy. People pick and choose one single part of something to define it....

    You can drive by Valley High School and and see any number of nice, new cars in the parking lot. Glen Oaks, West Glen - hell, pretty everything on Mills of 50th St. Valley Stadium really blows away people that haven't seen it before, especially compared to old Tiger Stadium 9 (and what sits in that spot now). Getting the new Aviva HQ built (when it could have gone downtown) and the new Microsoft data center, whenever it gets done, will just add fuel to the fire.
