Cost of living is higher than the rest of the shitty towns in Kansas because the quality of life is better.  Median income is lower than Manhattan because Lawrence is nearly twice the size and has a higher low income population.  It's more of a city as opposed to some shitty little podunk college town with a mall and zero character.

I guess Tuberculosis and bed bugs is quality life in Lawrence.

The quality of life is so good in Lawrence that people would rather live in Eudora and drive there.  :lol:

are gangs behind the hukah dens? there sure are a lot of those in larryville. not much office space, but plenty of places to smoke out of bongs.

Part of the low quality of life thing is wrong.   For instance,  I hate waiting line.   In Lawrence,  the only place I have ever had to wait in line were the courthouse and the dollar store.

Manhattan just has a greater number of higher paying jobs.  It has a burgeoning "tech sector" like silicon valley or research triangle.

the violent gangs in Lawrence are keeping those higher paying jobs out.  Who wants to get a phd only to be shaken down by the Disciples?

I have heard that the multiple Wal-marts have become ground zero for the gangs turf wars.

Did the gangs pressure Tharpe out due to irradic play making point shaving super difficult, or did he decide he couldn't live in squalor for another year?

He felt like they needed a 3rd Wal-Mart.

with gangs, especially violent ones, comes heroin.  with heroin comes hukah dens.  the simple fact is the dens are nothing more than money laundering operations for the Omaha and St. Louis operations - make no mistake, these gangs are well organized and very dangerous.  I can't stress enough how anyone recruited needs to not join

I told you dorks how poor they were when they approached me to broadcast KU's Softball games. Not one business had enough money to chip in $100 to list themselves as a sponser of the broadcast. I mean, they're poor and they don't back their university.  :frown:

legal dens?  maybe a dozen or so with new ones being built everyday.  there's a bunch of unlicensed ones that serve underage gang members.

some of the non-gang sections of larryville are composed entirely of seasonally-employed casino and nascar track workers.
