3. One reason I kinda like small towns
Sure, we still get some of that snobbiness. But everybody goes to the same public school, the low income housing is mixed in with all the middle income housing. And you know when the rich fucks get in trouble so you can always take them down a peg or two if they get too snobby at you.

Are they putting in any "housing first" projects in your area? About 20 cities are starting projects for the chronic homeless where an apartment is the first thing provided, and any social services come after that. It turns out people can manage their personal issues better when they don't have to worry about a place to live and food to eat (duh).
