I have a few "pet peeves." One of them is when folks who live in my town say bad things about it. It ranks right up there with Americans joining in to slam our country with Europeans. Something is just principally not right about that.
Another one is bad grammar, but I'll save that for another post.
How can someone say, "Sacramento = no culture." We have a beautiful and very cosmopolitan museum.
People say all the time, "What a cow town." Apparently they haven't been to Vacaville - actually named 'cow town.'
And why do natives from here say things like, "I hate it here." I say, "Then get out!"
We have excellent recreational trails for biking, hiking and walking, we have outstanding restaurants, we have a thriving art community, we have good hair salons and we have trees second only to Paris. Plus we are the state capital. A town offering all that is much more than a cow town or any other slanderous label a dimwit can put on it.
Have I mentioned the real estate? Look how sweet this is!
So the next time you find yourself or someone else talking about Sacramento as if it was a less than awesome place, I urge you to think of the charm I am showing you here and also, my mother taught me, "If you haven't anything nice to say, then do not say anything." Or move away!
