In response to “No More Putting Up with Asheville” [Letters, Oct. 24]: I, for one, commend Mr. Montgomery [for] choosing to return to the place from which he came. Perhaps (in hopes) there are others of his mindset who could share in his wisdom and follow suit.
I’ve heard many wonderful things about Greenville. Wasn’t it recently listed as one of the top 10 places to live? Asheville, in contrast, is clearly in decline—practically Third World. Who in their right mind would move to such a flophouse of a town?
Just a word to prospective residents: Don’t be fooled by the liberal media. Asheville’s not the cultural oasis it’s made out to be. For real contentment, look to Greenville. I’ve also heard Florida’s still a pretty good bet.
