The Paradigmatic Usa City

I used to say that when one crossed the city limits of Chicago, one's IQ rose by 10 points.

If you want to make money or start a business or write a book, or be taught by first rate minds,  this is the place. There is a greater concentration of first rate intellect here than in New York or LA.

Just one thing. If you hope to pair off with someone of the opposite sex, that can be a challenge. Chicago tends to make single women hard as nails. So move to Chicago already married.

Canadian readers: you have a place a lot like Chicago: Toronto.
