  •  Go Where the Growth is (4.00)
    Picking New Orleans, Orlando or New York would be a little too blatant.  Anaheim and Las Vegas would invite all the jokes about Sin City and Hollyweird.  Texas has too many Gun nuts.  Minneapolis and Detroit are fine places to live but they are a little bit ummm...rustic.  GO west, young man.  Go West.  Phoenix or Denver.  Make the statement that we are going to fight for those states and we are looking to the future.  I voted for Denver but Phoenix was a close second choice.

    •  Is Denver growing? (none)
      Last time I went to Colorado, couple of years ago, everywhere other than Boulder and Aspen was in pretty bad recession.

      We had motel owners, restaurant and shop owners all over Colorado trying to sell us their places.

      •  Yes, we're growing (none)
        Colorado picked up an EV after the 2000 census and may pick up another after 2010.  Denver's city population grew by about 60,000 between 1990 and 2000 and the metro pop is now nearing 3 million.
      •  Things are improving (none)
        The economy is growing again.  IT jobs are picking up again.  That
        was one of the major sources of recession -locally.   A big snow
        season in the mountains is helping tourism this year.  Who knows
        what the economy (locally and nationally) will be like after 2 more years of QuackerMcChimp.  
        Here is a good summary of the Denver Economy and a look forward to the next few years.
