Can we assume all Catholics are pedophiles because of what a few Catholic priests have done?

If not, then don't assume all gays are pedophiles for the same reason.

California has huge farming areas. About 90% of the world's artichokes come from here, so you are WELCOME, my cranky dear.
I think you have an artichoke in your cranium!

He's right, Curteese. The only part of Ohio that gets real snow is the upper 1/3 of the state near the lake. Roughly everything north of US 30.
Everything south of there isn't too bad. We get the occasional cold winter, but by and large things are pretty mild around here.
Ohio is a very nice state compared to most other states. Sometimes you have to have some vision to understand, but once the new car smell wears off on all the new construction down south, you'll see.
If you want to see what I mean, check out Hilton Head, SC these days. Nothing uglier than 30 year old, sunfaded cedar.
Look at that, someone plastered your PRO Ohio posting with frowney icons. I guess you're in trouble for being nice to me.

Of course Ohio is a perfectly fine state. those others seem to go insane of anyone criticizes it, but have absolutely NO compunction about trashing California. That happens all the time on these Topix sites, in fact it is a national pastime to bash California. I'm used to it and still love my home state. Their hypocrisy stinks on ice.

Los Angeles is the perfect illustration. 30 years ago, it was what the South is today. Lots of nice new construction and booming. Thirty years and millions of Mexican later, most of it is a complete shythole, IMO. Look at the older parts of Florida as well. Except for the weather, I'll take Ohio each and every time.
No it's not. I read in the LA Times on Sunday that LA is one of THE hot spots for real estate returning and is up about 10% from a year ago.

What part of LA are you fussing about? Malibu? Beverly Hills? Bel Air? Some of the more pricey homes on earth.

If you are looking at South Central, or Compton, or the like, not so great, but even those are looking better now.

Only a complete anti-American moron would love a state where the legislature is trying to make it 'legal' for non-citizens to sit on juries.

sorry can't agree. Most of what I saw in LA was just plain disgusting. SF and that whole area is very nice though.

Woop, you're obsess compulsive disorder just kicked in and you're repeating yourself again. You really don't have much to say, do you? Thank the LORD I am here to give you something to do besides making grocery lists and cleaning up after your window licking snot nosed kids.

Just pointing out that assuming one but not the other is a double standard if you examine it logically.
