8 cheap places [I wouldn't] want to live

Saw this on MSN yesterday: 8 cheap places you'd want to live... but would I, really? Let's see:

  • Asheville, NC-- Would I really? North Carolina appeals to me, but I must confess Asheville is a little small for my taste. I prefer...
  • Austin, TX-- Though it is in TexAss, this is the best pick of the list for me by far.
  • Boise, Idaho-- Okay, larger, but still too small to suit me. Who are they writing this for, retirees?
  • Fayetteville, Ark-- Hmmm... small but inviting college town, a charming liberal island in the red belt. Maybe when I'm old.
  • Minneapolis, MN-- Yuk. Cold, boring, and crappy cost of living. Pass.
  • Nashua, N.H.-- Ditto, only yukkier.
  • Olympia, Wash.-- Podunk yet pricey, but quite liberal & therefore perhaps acceptable. Evergreen College makes is more tenable (we once knew a guy who went there, no grades, no exams, woo-hoo!)
  • Prescott, AZ-- Now you're talkin. Much more my style, even considering gang activity is climbing and it's also teensy-tiny.
They need to add some real places to live on this list. They obviously don't know what I'm looking for in a residence. I will have to counter with my own selections (once I've done some research). Any suggestions for me? I hate cold, don't like to live expensively, and am a cross between a libertarian and a liberal.

Sounds vaguely disturbing, David!
