Run away. Far, far, away. Seriously.

I had the grave misfortune of living in Dayton for about a year. EtHics are nearly non-existent in this town as are landlord-tenant laws and, evidently, employment laws. Perhaps, because of the economy. There is real unwillingness, almost a fear, to stand up for what is fair or right. People gouge and bill and misrepresent in ways that would be illegal in most states. Just politics and bobble heads. And if back biters and gossipers could fly, this place would have it's own airport. Oh, wait it does! People here think nothing of sharing information, speculative or imagined, to a degree that can ruin lives and careers. And no one seems smart enough to be ashamed of these nearly transparent shenanigans. I met one or two nice people. And found one nice coffee place. They were just too few and far between. There were attempts at supporting art and culture. Chain restaurants are plentiful, but pizza and take out Chinese are not really ethnic restaurants, in the truest sense. Community: People lie, make secret deals, lie some more, trash each other, and no one is willing to do right things lest they be next. The vibe? It's a crappy, provincial, bitter, pedantic, ugly little town with all the charm of food poisoning. I wouldn't go there on a lost bet or at gun point. I'd rather be dead. In fact, If I were buried there I'd still try to move.
