My city on the hill would have no religion.

This will solve 90% of problems.

My city on the hill would have a coast, as well. Everyone would be assured education, a comfortable place to live, no one would go hungry ... and no one would wear droopy-ass draws and hats backwards.

My city would not allow wars or violence towards others. Nor, famine or greed. Everyone would be just and equal. And it would be "green!" Environmentally friendly.

In my world teachers would make baseball player salaries and baseball players, would be teachers playing the game for fun after work.

I am for this....

My new Idea is - reverse retirement -

You should not have to work until you are forty - so you can enjoy the world. Then you have to work until you die to support the fun the under forty corwd is having.

I have to admit I'm a little frightened of 93-year-old cab drivers and 87-year-old surgeons...

gays. lots and lots of gays. we make great urban citizens who support local theater, music, arts, book stores, coffee shops, restaurants that aren't Applebees, public transportation, and they spend lots of time making their homes attractive inside and out.

so gays. that's what my city will have.

It's not a critique...just an apprehension.

My city would be built on the foundations of faith, hope, and love.

I do not want you as dictator.
