On being an Ann Arbor townie

The author of this piece on Ann Arbor townies has a broader definition than I would have, but it is a fine piece nonetheless. I would say that someone who teachers or is a student at the university cannot be a townie, even if, like one of my colleagues, she grew up here and has townie friends. But that is really beside the point. I think really the point is that an article called "On Being a Long-Time Ann Arbor Resident" would not sound as interesting.
