We are way better than Nome, AK

There is a delay so I’m listening to podcasts that are several weeks old, but I was listening to Smart City Radio, all on urban planning, and their piece on what attracts young college educated people to cities. They were talking about a report put out by TSC for CEOs for Cities here PDF1 and herePDF2. Things were going fine until they started talking about cities young people did not want to live in, DC was one. Along with cities in AK and SD. Okay…… Yeah, it’s hot and the electricity goes out occasionally when it rains, but you do not have to fight polar bears and our Summers are real.
