My city, San Jose, has no money because everyone lives here but nobody wants to spend time here. Every day during morning rush hour you can watch the exodus of our population to the places they work and entertain themselves, and during evening rush hour you can watch them all return home to sleep and wait for the next opportunity to leave.

San Jose must have made some terrible mistakes if people are leaving the city each day for work, and only returning to sleep. That's the paradigm that bedroom community suburbs have, which are solely dependent on the larger city they orbit.
