Possibly you live in a place called "city" without living in an actual city. Like maybe Rock City or Johnson City or something like that. Here's how to tell the difference: Your genuine city will have at minimum one daily paper, one weekly alternative tabloid, and one glossy monthly magazine. A weekly shopper does not count as an alt. weekly; a true alternative paper periodically carries an article about quirky hipster girls reviving the art of roller derby. A metropolitan glossy monthly is found only in waiting rooms, and runs cover stories with exciting titles like, "Our 100 Richest Cosmetic Orthodontists."
