Oh, come on.  "Oh, I wouldn't know a crappy town."  We all know that everyone in NYC thinks EVERY other town is crappy! 


NYC on the top of the list of places they would never want to live, like me. Its too big, too expensive and costs too much to own a car there. Here for less than 400k I have an extremely nice place downtown, I can afford to own two cars, go hiking, kayaking, mountain bike riding all in the city limits and can be in Vail in two hours. Cost of living here compared to salary is greater than there. Personally Iíd put NYC, LA and DC on my crappy city list as Iíd have to give up too many of things I enjoy to live there in some over priced apartment the size of my master bathroom. Its all relative one - manís crappy is another manís heaven.

That was a joke, Matthies, re: NYC elitism.  I don't want to live in DC, LA, NYC either.  But Denver is also not really on people's "crappy town" list.  I'm thinking Boonies, Arkansas.

Yea that would be on my crappy list too. Although some people love small town life

Congrats, Dip!
That's cool how you referenced a case.

I read a good chunk of the thread, but may have missed this...

OP - what are you doing with your unemployed time right now?

other than searching, nothing much just doing a little reading. Life is pretty stagnant right now.

Did you consider applying for the thing I posted at the NYS AG's Office?

Also doing volunteer work for a legal aid type office may be good too, help you brush up on some legal skills under the advice of a supervising attorney while looking for a job...
