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.

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