I’m jealous of you, Jon! You live in (or near) one of the most exciting, cosmopolitan cities in the world. No one says, “New York, London, Paris, Denver” in the same breath. (Although I wish they had the “New York, London, Paris, Paducah” (as in Kentucky) t-shirt in my size!) theater, comedy, museums, pubs! We have pubs here, but they are pale imitations, wannabes that have neither soul nor heart. Plus Sherlock Holmes (he is real!!!) & fogs that make Missouri blush with shame. And Shakespeare (he is real!!!)! Well, we have Shakespeare here, too, but usually just in movie form.
