First, we have far fewer grifting politicians.  For several months a year, Boise’s own political web is padded by state legislative sessions (I’m joking, O.K.?)  Number two, after posting yesterday about how much better Twin Falls is than Idaho Falls, I realized I could annoy a few more people with some other comparisons.

With the winter chill nipping at my nose, toes, fingers, and everything else - this house for sale with an indoor heated pool is just what I need.

The Scenery Changes and it Changes Fast

So, let’s talk about the comparison between Twin Falls and Boise.  When I drive out of Twin Falls, I immediately see pastoral settings in places like Buhl and Kimberly (luckily, Route 30 bypasses downtown Filer!)  You leave Boise and before you know it, you’ve reached the fetid swamps of Caldwell and Nampa.  Are you up to speed on your tetanus vaccine?

Driving Just Got a Lot Easier

And traffic.  Oh, my!  One Friday afternoon I stopped by and had a late lunch with a friend from Concordia Law School.  We watched the traffic leaving downtown come to a standstill and people walking were making better time.

Twin Falls and Boise both have women serving as mayors.  Suzanne Hawkins of Twin Falls is a flag-waving patriot and financially responsible.  Heck, one of her children works for skinflint Dave Ramsey.  It appears Boise has recruited someone from Caracas, Venezuela.

My drive to work in Twin Falls takes me from the north side to the south side in a dozen minutes.

It Doesn't Cost Your First Born for Housing

Oh, and paying 18-hundred dollars a month for an 800 square foot apartment, sorry, but I don’t care how many blue fields and trails you have, it’s not worth it.

Boise Traffic is a Headache

Light, after light, after light.  Stop.  Start.  Stop.  Start.
