    Re: Seattle Radio Station calls DSM a crappy town

    Just have a DSM radio station call Seattle a crappy town and call it even. I mean they lost their NBA team to OKC. How crappy do you have to be for that to happen???

    If our town is so crappy, why is your town's suicide rate so high?

    That's odd because DM is ALWAYS in the top ten best cities to A) live in B) start a bussiness or career in C) raise a family in. **** you, Kurt Cobain.

    Re: Seattle Radio Station calls DSM a crappy town

    Thank God this happened! I was getting worried that with all the recent pub about Des Moines actually being a great place to live and work, that we'd get over run. I'm just fine with the rest of the world thinking this place sucks, because I love it.

    Re: Seattle Radio Station calls DSM a crappy town

    Des Moines is a fine town.

    Seattle itself isn't all that great. The city is alright, but its what is outside of town (the close proximity of the mountains and Puget Sound) that make the area cool. This DJ is probably some yuppy who never leaves the city who doesn't even experience the things that make his area cool.

    Re: Seattle Radio Station calls DSM a crappy town

    Am I the only one who thinks it is ironic that the station's promo is to see a COOL band in a CRAPPY town are sending the winner to DSM to watch the Black Eyed Peas?

    Des Moines: It's like Seattle without the seafood, mountains, drizzle and serial killers.

    Re: Seattle Radio Station calls DSM a crappy town

    this lost all credibility when they called the Black Eyed Peas cool.

    "Seattle’s Kiss 106.1 is having a contest where listeners can call in and see a cool band in a crappy town.

    This week, Des Moines had the honor(?) of making the list, with the radio station offering lucky listeners a trip to hear the Black Eyed Peas March 25 at Wells Fargo Arena. "

    Exactly. I enjoy the relatively small lines at stores and public events. I also like not fighting traffic and finding parking spots downtown.

    This pretty much falls on 'hate what you don't know or understand' theory.

    No way you guys, Seattle is SOOOO awesome that there is no way anyone who lived there would ever choose to move to Des Moines.

    Re: Seattle Radio Station calls DSM a crappy town

    Seattle is one to talk. Just driving through most of the city makes you want to take a bath. Traffic is some of the worst I've ever seen. It is always sprinkling even though they get less moister than DSM. In fact a suburb of Seattle has been voted the most depressing city like three times in the past 15 years. Anyone ever been to the area around Safco field where the old King dome used to be, you feel like your going to get jumped at any time.

    If it was a Spokane host, I would have to keep my month shut because I actually like Spokane a lot, but Seattle, come'on.
