If San Jose's Not a City, What Is?

Perhaps, maybe in some fantasy utopian future, a place with a thriving counterculture, several live music clubs, street pranks, world famous neighborhoods, historical landmarks that people under 70 actually care about, skyscrapers, a functional public transportation system, killer Russian delis, 100 art galleries, a million different things to do past midnight and cops who don't act like power-hungry meatheads who couldn't make the football team in high school. [Gary Singh, "Silicon Alleys," San Jose Metro, September 7]

But--SJ's population is larger than Detroit's, which nullifies the above complaint, doesn't it? Thank you, 1950's annexation wars.

I don't like that guy's article. Why would we want skyscrapers in San Jose? The ground is going to roll homes off the hills, and snap the valley floor. What do street pranks have to do with anything? Now that I think of it, I don't think I like that guy.
