Downtown Columbia! Prepare ye for hoardes of new blood!
From the people who told you we're ugly
and not as funny as Kansas City
The list-hounds over at The Daily Beast
have come up with yet another one: The 30 "best places in America for reinvigorating your life and career."
And to all those folks seeking a new city in which to start afresh, Columbia is right on top!!!! Of 13 other cities.
It trails 16 other cities, because those other 16 apparently just look better with respect to small business friendliness, ease of finding a job, high income level, low cost-of-living, non-profit friendliness, student-friendliness. And for people who want to start their lives over, these things are deal-makers -- or, if you ain't got it, deal-breakers.
At 16th place, Columbia kinda do got it. So congrats Columbia! (Kind of.)
