Where is the arts section? The art generate more than a billion dollars in CA and half a B in NY. It deserves some analysis. Cyclic economics. Every dollar spent on arts turns 30 bucks back to local communities.

I would like to relocate to another city. It is very hot and humid here, but the main thing is the horrible traffic and rude drivers!! Also, Houston is very divere and many, many jobs require to be bilingual which I am not. I used to like it here when I moved here in 1992 but it has changed. Please, any info to relocate to another city out of state would be ok, too. I am in the dental front desk job category.
Thank you for any info you may be able to share with me.
Oh, I need affordability and was thinking about the southeast states maybe. Also need safety. Asking too much?

I really like the site. I am a Political Science major that is currently pursuing a minor in Economics from a local university. Anyhow, I was thinking that the internet and internet access is important to me...maybe you could have the most "wired" states. Another interesting thing would to create a database that compares cities...like a Citymaster, for instance.
