Cities have a larger variety material goods and services readily available; however, time and space are at a premium in cities. City people often sacrifice space and time for goods and services. Country people sacrifice the convenience of readily available goods and services for space and time. I would not want to live in a densely populated area. I would not want to live where the land could not support the population. I would not want to live where I could not fire my gun or take a piss off of my back porch. I would not want to live where the deer and turkey don't graze in my yard while I drink my coffee in the morning. I cannot understand why people would pay a premium to live stacked on top of each other, but I'm damn glad that they do. As it is, well over half of our nation occupies less than fifteen percent of our country. And as far as I'm concerned, they can have it. I have just about as much interest in living stacked on top of other people as they have interest in living out here. So far, so good.
