Where y'at? --I'm down in New Orleans, the Brooklyn of the South, to look at houses, listen to neighborhood stories and, of course, eat. I suspect I'll find, as Mike Miller did, that calling a city home isn't about architectural styles, climate, cuisine or even safety and job prospects, but about something less quantifiable but perhaps more essential: ya gotta believe.

Happy new year, everyone.
