#1 Atlanta could have had the headquarters, but we stopped the bribe bidding at $3.5 billion dollars spread over 10 years. As a result, we finished dead last. Poor people have poor ways.

#2 I have to say I was pleased they didn't come to our neck of the woods even though the jobs would be nice. I don't want their political influence in my area.

#4 This may be good news for me. I'm planning on selling my house after I retire next year, and this should raise house prices. I'm within commuting distance of Arlington.

Of course, the traffic on I95 is already a nightmare. Luckily I won't have to deal with it after I move.

#5  Poor people have poor ways.

One of my all time favorites there.
