A friend on Facebook challenged people to come up with positive things about living in Scottsbluff. I did a list of lack of negatives from other areas:
The air is clear year around , not brown or grey. I've lived in places where you could see the air at certain times of the year.
I've enver sat at an intersection and had the light cycle red-green-yellow-red three or four times before I was able to make it through.
The local radio's traffic reports are really short.
Nobody cares how much public transporation officials make.
The local news does not have a segment telling you how many murders occured that day.
Hurricane season is an abstract concept.
National news had not camped out here because a locally born celeberity did something stupid.
