Would you take a job in Charlottesville?

It's ironic but DH just received a job offer in Columbia, VA which is about 40 miles from Charlottesville. So it got me thinking with all that's gone on with the protesting and violence would you want to live that close to there?

I love Charlottesville. I went to a boarding school outside of Charlottesville and my sister lives in a home outside of Charlottesville. It's a great town and a beautiful area so I wouldn't let a bunch of idiots keep me from moving there.

I've never even been to VA. Why is it so bad?

Yeah, there is. It's not really a big town but there always seems to be something going on.

He had a really great offer back in May for a job in Baltimore but we ultimately decided we didn't want our kids living there and couldn't find anything outside of the city that would keep dh from driving over a hour to work every day.
