RE: Perplexed

I grew up on the snobby East Coast and I have to say, one thing I
immediately appreciated upon moving to the Inland Northwest six years ago
was everything that you complain about. I always felt out of place in New
England but when I made my way to Spokane I felt like I should have been
here all along. I read both of your jeers, both equally annoying and
superficial. And I read all the jeers in response to you, which made me
proud of the patriotism in my adopted city by the river. I doubt that my
entire wardrobe is worth more than $100, which is probably what you spend
on one pair of pants. Spokane is so laidback, we don't need snobby people
like you here. You should move. But don't move to Seattle or Portland, as
people are laidback there too. You should make your way to New York City or
Boston, far far away from us where you will fit in with all the snobby,
superficial folk who haven't even heard of Spokane. I'm sure you'll love
