    Thanks for posting this article.I'm definitely tired of struggling to find relevant and intelligent comments on this topic. Everybody today seems to go to extremes to either drive home their views or suggest that anyone else in the world is wrong. Thank you for your accurate and relevant insights.

    That's for sure, big cities mean big bucks but they also mean bigger responsibilities. It hard to get hired on the job you want in a big city without pre employment testing. The demand for excellency is higher in big cities.
