OOOOpsie! Nominate Poohcarrot for "gotcha" of the year.
Okay, to my very feegle (pun intended) defense, there's a big difference between stating that a place is the "hub of the universe" and that it is the best place to live in.
For example, there are many who state that New York City is the greatest city in the world, and I wouldn't necessarily argue against that claim (even though, as a Bawstonian, I'm a lifelong anti-NYer). But, unless you've Trump-rich, it would be hard to say it's the best place to live.
Likewise, unless you're into prohibitively high real estate prices, horrible winters, corrupt state government, losing presidential candidates, funny talking people and battling the world's scariest and selfish drivers on pot-hole line roads, the cerebral attractions of Boston may be far outweighed by the challenges living here poses to the average mortal.
