SpaceMonkey actually makes my point about neighbourhoods for me:

Cities are busy and loud places. There is room to make certain areas of the city quieter and less busy, but in order for a city to be a city, there will always be areas which will be busy and loud. I dislike loud and busy so I'd be really happy if that wasn't so which is why I choose not to live in the core.

As I mentioned earlier, I drive WITHIN the city every day, all day, and being able to get from PLACE TO PLACE within the city is one of the things that is unique to Hamilton that I LOVE. I absolutely dread having to drive in Burlington or Oakville. Besides housing prices, Hamilton's traffic and lack of congestion was THE biggest factor in why I chose to move here...

So, basically, you want to drive around the city at high speed, but you don't want to live in a neighbourhood where others do the same. I'd say you are the one who should take a philosophy course -- but in moral philosophy, not formal logic.

On an unrelated note, I apologize for my incorrect statement about you driving a truck. And I'm not sure why two people downvoted your clarification on that point; I upvoted it.

And I'll join the discussion at Sean's shop on Cannon.
