It depends on how one describes "progressive"..

I have no idea how big Columbia MO is but comparing Austin Texas to Greenville NC is almost not fair.

You are talking about the capital of Texas, with UT, and one of the biggest upcoming cities in the country.

Greenville is absolutely progressive, especially within Eastern NC. And it is making progress....it is bringing people in from other places. It is actually becoming less of a college town and more of a diverse city. The medical jobs being created are good jobs. And the service oriented jobs and educational opportunities are pulling in young folks from neighboring counties.

But the scale of Austin and Greenville are completely different....Austin is now the 11th largest city in the country. Greenville is the 10th largest in NC.

Ummm..........ok? Don't really understand why someone would compare Columbia, MO to Greenville. Especially on something as subjective as "progressiveness".
