Not that you don’t already know this, but you guys wouldn’t want to have to live in Wichita. Even just being from there must be a downer. Judging from the people I meet in Kansas City who run successful bars, restaurants or businesses who practically apologize for being from the land down under.
And don’t even get me started on Topeka.
I think I’ve made myself abundantly clear on how lame the capital of Kansas is and you guys know how much I hate to repeat myself.
Omaha? Doable, I suppose.
Although after suffering through two years of enduring Lawrence’s KU basketball cult, I’m pretty sure 24/7 Cornhusker Mania would be equally insufferable.
On top of which, despite Omaha’s charming downtown, my experience there was that the people didn’t appear all that much different than the folks at Sam’s Club in Topeka. I know I’m being catty, just trying to keep it real.
Like most smaller cities, cooler dudes like Nebraskans Kevin Collison and Greg Hall usually find a way to escape the gravitational pull to places like Kansas City or Denver.
Which brings us to the topic of the day, Des Moines, Iowa.
And while this may represent a rush to judgement, I have to tell you guys, I think I could actually handle living in Des Moines. Seriously.
