Why do I live here?

This recent front page story in the Pantagraph sums up my feeling about the community I currently live in and am desperately trying to escape.

Let's look at the issues shall we.

1. It's front page news what people name their dogs.
2. The local newspaper can throw resources into creating a database of local pet names.
3. The newspaper, in subsequent issues, encouraged residents to check out the database and "see how your pet's name stacks up." Keeping up with the Jonesy, indeed.

*shakes head* So sad...
