Avenue then street, or vice-versa?

When you state an intersection in a city that has avenues and streets (or some other system where N-S is one set and E-W is another set), is there a convention for which you name first? In other words, how should people interpret something like "9th and 11th"? If there's a convention, is it universal? Or, does it vary from city to city? [more inside]

Cheap health care in the Minneapolis area?

I have catastrophic health insurance for the catastrophes. But until I reach that $3000 deductible, I'd really like to pay less than I currently am for checkups and other simple doctors visits. For example, I recently went in for an ear infection. My doctor took a look and prescribed an antibiotic. It took 10m and I got a bill for $200. I'm not here to complain about how expensive health care is -- that's pretty well established and has been done plenty already -- but what are my more affordable alternatives? [more inside]

Songs of the City

I think my question might be too vague to google properly, so I turn to you. I'm looking for a wide variety of songs about cities. Not necessarily about a specific city, but in general. A couple of examples of the type of song I'm looking for is Dread the Day (Ghosts of Lemora) and Take Back the City (Snow Patrol). I don't care about musical genre. I'll listen to just about anything. :)
