Not Exactly a "boomtown"

When BusinessWeek posted its list of 42 relative boom towns (I'm glad "relative" was part of the announcement), I excitedly searched for Atlanta's ranking. It's absent. So much for that.

Georgia is on the list, with Augusta (# 24) - the military, medicine - but having Jackson MS, Columbia SC and Memphis TN on the list and Atlanta not, that is not a good thing. We're in the midst of a Mayoral election campaign; let the best woman win - we need a little boost into national rankings here.

Faring best in the BusinessWeek rankings are cities in Texas and upstate New York - go figure! I wouldn't live in either place - for cultural reasons in the former and the weather in the latter.
