I love the Rust Belt, its frustrations, character and all.
I love the people. The innovators and pioneers who are returning home to help rebuild our economically throttled region.
I loathe (in general) the leaders. The corrupt politicians who continue the practice of back-room dealing, generally leading to development policies that favor suburban commuters over city residents, continuing decades worth of political ineptitude.
And yes, the weather can be a son of a bitch bastard at times.
