I picked up the latest issue of Outside Magazine and was appalled by what I read.

This issue had the best areas to live and it listed Wilmington as an "up and coming place." It said that the Wilmington area in #2 in the nation in terms of growth.

I wonder who paid Outside Magazine to list Wilmington as an "up and coming area." Does anyone know?

IMO, a town with over 10% unemployment and a town with nothing more than low wage service sector jobs does not need to be listed as an "up and coming" area.

I guess Wilmington is an "up and coming area" if you are a retiree with a big fat pension and lots of money in the bank but for the comman man, it's nothing more than a dead-end town.

i think you should send a letter to outside magazine, and demand an explanation for this.

Even though you don't live here anymore [ per one of your posts]
you are always able to dredge up something bad about
