The Woman of Bend .OR are just like austin, Tx
either lesbian, stuck-up or Geek's...and the COLA is very high...!!
I can agree with Kingsport, Tn.'s rating. That place is a "S#*THOLE" at best...
I can honestly say that because I grew up in that region !!!
When MSN carries these articles from Kiplinger about "cities" why isn't a study done with only big cities? You know, comparing Seattle, Chicago, NYC's five boroughs', DC, San Francisco, Boston, LA, San Diego, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Houston, Denver, Phoenix, Nashville, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Miami, New Orleans...you know, REAL URBAN CENTERS.
Only Austin or maybe Columbus I would call a city. Yuma, Ann Arbor, Punta Gorda (wtf is a Punta Gorda and where is it?), Sandusky, Texarkana, Ocala, Punxatawny, Gravelsburg or Outer Moosejaw are not cities, but suburban sprawl areas that may or may not have some kind of "downtown" section. If they do it's really just a financial district where no one lives and closes after dark. I know, I used to travel extensively for work, ten years on the road and I've been to every big city and every burg in between.
As a single big city guy, a HUGE paycheck would have to be the "carrot on a stick" to consider any of the four choices other than Austin. Santa Barbara is beautiful, but if I moved to Cali, I'd rather be in LA, SD or SF, you know, where there is a scene, a vibe.
BTW, I'm no kid. I'm in my 50's and living in a vibrant city is keeping me young.
aren't there more important issues in our country/world to address rather than dictating where people should live?
why don't you encourage people to stay in their own town and make it better?
