TODAY IN IRONY: When a city in America earns a reputation, it will generally be embraced or immediately changed.
Philadelphia, with more than its share of unfriendly people in the world, is called “the City of Brotherly Love.” There’s New York, where very few people actually taste the Big Apple. There’s Dallas (or Fort Worth) where people assume everyone drives to work … on the horse resting right outside the bait and tackle shop.
And then, there’s San Francisco — a liberal utopia in the minds of some, a homogenous setting with arms wide open for others.
The city is also known for nearby Silicon Valley: birthplace of technology, epicenter of innovation…and one of the worst places in the country for Internet reception.
