There's this little thing standing between you and me. It's the
concept of neighborhoods with names. Now, I know what you're thinking.
It's a completely normal, commonplace thing to let me know that your
house is in such-and-such neighborhood. However, to me, it's like
saying, "I live on Mars." Actually no. I know where Mars is. I don't
know where the neighborhood is that you're referring to.
I remind you, I grew up in a town of 2,000. There are 2 4-way
stoplights. When you look up a Neighborhood Profile of a place in
Pawnee, Oklahoma, Yahoo! Real Estate gives you the demographics of the entire town.
And while there are several people who may act like and resemble our
friend Mr. Rogers, they belong to Pawnee. They don't belong to
So, when I ask you where you live, please give me cross streets. I finally know them now!
