Albany, NY is the most boring city in America. One the one hand, I guess that could be regarded as a good thing if you are a refugee from Mogadishu. Pleasantly boring is always better than horrifying.
Anapolis, MD is sort of like Olympia. Lovely old buildings, beautiful waterfront.
Indianapolis is rednecky in the extreme.
Little Rock is kinda seedy and violent, but the Clinton Library is awesome and well worth the visit.
Oklahoma City is nice downtown. Check out Bricktown. I didn't care for the rest of the city, since it lacks sidewalks. The monument to the bombing at the federal building is very moving and a well-made tribute to those who lost their lives there.
Olympia's just so awesome.
That's it for capitals I've visited ;)

I like to think of Canada as a really nice place, progressive in politics, accepting and welcoming. Then I see Toronto mayors. Look at this clown and Mel Lastman. Why the fuck do people in Canada's most cosmopolitan city keep electing fucking cavemen to City Hall?
