Enjoy your visit, but don't think of moving here. We're too crowded already.

I have an engineer friend who worked for Ford in Detroit years ago. He refused to own a Ford after Ford made a decision to put 25,000 mile wheel bearings in their cars, saving $.50/bearing, when it could have spent the extra $.50 for 50,000 mile wheel bearings. Come to think of it, that knowledge went a long way in helping me decide to by a Datsun in 1970, rather than an American car.
