Mixed Blessing

Amazon #2

A recent article from the Seattle Times:


“At the bottom of the brain index was Muskegon, Michigan, a place I recently visited. I found the city lovely, with its lakeside setting, fine old houses and world-class museum. When I told a handful of Muskegonites about the problems in Seattle from the metastatic growth of Amazon, they were not sympathetic.”

Muskegon is certainly not in contention for Amazon #2….but that’s OK. There are greater issues than landing this giant….although just about every major city has submitted a proposal….including Raleigh.

This might be good advice – “To the next Amazon lottery winner I would say, enjoy the boom — but be careful what you wish for.”
