Why the Midwest is seeing a resurgence
The cheery woman grabbed me on my way to the stage. She couldn’t wait to tell me that, after a long career in the Washington area, she was moving to the Midwest. About the great house she found at half the price and a fraction of the property tax. The quick, easy trips to work, stores and everywhere else. The proximity of parks and bike trails and open, rural spaces. Packed and ready to go, she was the happiest person I met all month.
