What don't you like about San Diego?

Now I dont want to hear the good stuff about san diego as I already heard it before and they seemed pretty believable

If any of you live in San Diego I would love hear your input on this.

For me, the pros of SD heavily outweigh cons..

Cons I hear..

1) Still feels like a "small town," less things to do.. Not a prob for me as I'm happy outdoors..

It's expensive to live here; rent, houses and gas are all sky high. The city government is corrupt and bankrupt and always trying to cut services. The streets are full of pot holes. The salary scale is low compared to the cost of living.

On top of all that the chargers and padres always disappoint.

There is plenty to do here and the weather is generally pretty good.

The streets appear to have been laid out by a mule on acid dragging a grader..

San Diego is very, very provencial. It has decided to become sophisticated and urban, Republican style, by trying to "purchase" and develop it through capital development. As a result, it's soul (Old Town / Hillcrest) retains some authenticity, but the rest of it seems inauthentic, much like an amusement park.
I grew up there. I was born in 1952. I have lived in the Netherlands, Japan,
traveled to over 50 countries the hard way, and have lived bay side in the SF Bay Area for many years. My impression of San Diego comes from several trips back there since my youth.

It also seems to have any aura of corruption and absurd conservative, reactionary politics, through mouth pieces such as Daryl Issa, and Roger Hedgecock. It is actually what I would expect from a Mexican border town with a large defense contracting sector and two military bases. Really, what could one expect ?
