coastal comparisons

A biased, abridged list of the differences between California, where we currently reside, and Massachusetts, where we may possibly move...

Current Weather:
(central coast of) CA – 70 degrees and sunny. MA – nowhere left to put the snow
Native Heritage:
CA – usurps the names of Native Americans for spa and resort facilities. MA – usurps the names of Native Americans for highways
Town Names:
CA – typing random CA towns into Google may bring results including Beach Boys' lyrics. MA – typing random MA towns into Google may bring results including Puritan England
CA – known for the rolling stop, tagged the “Hollywood stop” in Northern CA. MA – known for completely f-ed up intersections that were paved sometime slightly after the Mayflower landed.
CA – liberal lipservice done in every time by Orange County. MA – Gay marriage legal.
CA – just because it's bank-owned, doesn't mean you shouldn't pay half a million for it. MA – affordable housing options
CA – largest deficit of any state, but thank god we've cut the car tax and filled the prisons. MA – also in debt, yet their residents enjoy the anomaly of health insurance.
CA – Awesome Mexican food on every block. MA - ---

The pro/con list has long failed to fit the bill when it comes to decision-making.
