Columbus Was Wrong
Whenever I’ve lived anywhere there was always an area that I truly liked and an area that I truly disliked. Let me give you an example. My wife and I lived on Long Island, NY for a while and we truly liked the north shore and truly disliked the south shore. It was so defined that our slogan was, like that during the westward expansion, go West young man - ours was go North young man…or woman. On the very rare occasions that we were absolutely forced to go to the south shore we felt that we had to get special dispensation, our passports stamped, a visa and shots. Our dividing point was the Long Island Expressway which ran west to east at approximately the middle of the island. It was our line of demarcation and we believed that if we crossed the LIE going south we’d fall off the face of the earth. So my advice to all of you is that whenever you move someplace find the area that you like and the area that you don’t like and then find your line of demarcation because I might be right – Columbus was wrong.
