The Windy City

Looks alot like Chicago, the south end of the loop.

Is it the hog butcher to the world? The tool maker? The stacker of wheat? The stormy, husky, brawling city of big shoulders? No?

The Emerald City?

If you mean Seattle, the answer is:

NO...

Without looking at oter skylines, I'm gonna' guess that it's a smaller Southern city, given the Coke sign. Not Huntsville ... the soil there doesn't support very tall buildings. Columbia, South Carolina, perhaps?

Nobody seems to have a clue, probably because no one has visited the place. I knew it was gonna be tough..

Here's another one:



hint: the city is in the 500,000 - 1,000,000 range. Inhabitants, that is.

I'm agreeing with Dan that it is probably someplace south. Little Rock?



Nope, not in the South of the United States. And does Little Rock have more than 500,000 inhabitants??? I was talking about the city population...

Add a serious case of Zits, a walkman and you have a photo of El Guapo at 16. WoW, how did they do that.

That is still English on the sign, so that should narrow things down some. Chicago?

Toronto

It looks North American, so I would say Toronto-except I think Toronto exceeds 1,000,000. Maybe not in Toronto City Limits, though. Although with all the changes in metropolitan government, who knows?

No, Toronto has almost 2.5 million, that's official.

Try again.

Maybe this will help:

Beautiful downtown Winnipeg. The TD Centre building is pretty recognizable. Bravo on finding downtown photos without it showing... very tricky!

Ho-Chi-Mihn City? I spotted a car pool lane sign. That sort of thing is only practiced by your hard-core commies!

Montana is beautiful this time of the year. Prudence, if you have room for me and my arsenal, pick me up on the drive out there.

All in jest. Truly

I guess I should have added a winking' icon for clairity.

But that is not a bad idea. I once wrote a piece for a right of center rag suggesting that there be vacation cottages set up for the rugged right where members could go and get a sense of the impending ATF raids and Helicopter Surveillance. Sort of a rent a fortress for the way-right. All done with paintballs and laser tag of course. That way people could get the old Waco-Ruby Ridge itch out of their system and go back to drinking lattes during the week.

Militias are so mid-90s. Now, the right-wing thing to do is become an inside-the-Beltway media pundit. Thing is, real estate in McLean, Virginia is so much more expensive than in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.[/ot]

Going OT

[ot]True, But I am wearing a pink shirt and green pants at this very moment wishing I was back in the Reagan 80's. Is that Duran Duran I hear?

Spokane is the secret right-wing jewel in real estate market in the 'OO's. [/ot]
