    I don't know...could you be negatively influencing people maybe ?

    I spent last Wednesday at Washburn University in a meeting and then went
    out to Wanamaker Road to eat dinner and shop at the mall. I never saw
    anything dirty and I never felt unsafe for even a second.

    My daughter stayed at a Topeka hotel recently before she took her
    Nursing Board tests and she felt safe and the hotel passed her white
    glove test.

    One of my really "neat-freak" teacher friends goes to Topeka one nite
    every week dancing with her husband. The always eat out, dance, and
    then spend the nite some weeks. They feel safe and must enjoy themselves
    or they wouldn't keep returning.

    I think parts of East Topeka are "ghetto" like. But most cities have an
    area of low-rent housing that wouldn't be our first choice for working,
    living, shopping, etc.

    Again, I don't know where you're getting your info, but think it is very
    biased. And, I don't have any reason to defend Topeka as I live over an
    hour away and only go there by choice.
