The Kitchen Store in The Colony Mill is a cook/chef's dream come true.  They carry very high quality kitchen utensils, including Swiss and German made, much better than anything at Wal-Mart or Target.

I found some plastic bowl scrapers there that I have not found in other cooking utensil stores.

FYI:  The owner, Dean, is a major statist.    From what I understand, he was one of the people that was very condescending toward Julia when she was interviewed on the radio.

I like the voter apathy.

Franklin Pierce changed into a University this year.

Some might find it a bummer that there are so many chicks here. :)

Potential movers, who are of course most likely to be young single males.

Keene is very much a post-Christian city, like the rest of New England, which is disappointing to me.

What do you mean by "post-Christian?"

I only read the first few paragraphs but I'm OK with it. Keene may be the place for us.

I don't want to rain on your parade but as a local citizen born in Keene I would like to have seen these reasons have a better reflection in reality.

1. "Keene is the economic hub of southwestern NH". This is misleading, Keene is not the economic hub but just the largest town in Cheshire County. The median household income for NH is $53,377. For Cheshire county it's $46,428 with per capita income at $26,074. In Keene the per capita is $20,544 with $21,587 for U.S. as a whole (U.S. census bureau).

"Downtown Keene - Widest Main Street in America - easy parking!"

This was a slogan used by the Keene Chamber of Commerce and locals to attract tourists. It never had any basis in fact. And the parking thing is dangerous to pedestrians and bikers and was never designed to be easy. It was designed to generate revenue not ease of use. No where in NH will you find as many parking meters as Keene.

Keene is the economic hub, because that's where all the business is.

Parking meters are a problem in Keene, but I'm don't see how angled parking is in any way dangerous to pedestrians and bikers.

You can find me in a downtown coffee shop virtually every day... and I find the parking both cheap and convenient.  It didn't take me long to find the way cheaper (20 cents/hr.) metered parking lot between Gilbo and Emerald streets, just a few quick steps from Main Street.

It grates me to deposit money into a government-run parking meter, and I only do it because their parking space service meets the necessary three criteria: 1) It serves my needs better than any alternative, 2) It is provided on a 100% voluntary fee basis, and 3) As far as I can tell, parking space service is wide open to competition (if downtown landowners wish to make their own parking areas available to the public, they are free to do so).

If all government operated in that manner, everything would be chill :)
