I’m pretty rooted in San Francisco after living here for 30 years and I wouldn’t give up my view or what I’ve accomplished here for anything. But now and then I can get annoyed with my West Coast friends who don’t seem to understand the realities that exist between coasts. I’m turned off by elitist attitudes and there’s a lot of that in San Francisco. People are down to earth in Ohio and I’m proud of where I’m from. Though I’ve been to Italy many times, the best Italian restaurant in the world, to me, is Sylvester’s in North Canton, and I like Luigi’s in Akron a lot, too.
