you might be suprised by my answer, dont be fooled. detroit michigan. as ugly as it is now, it will improve i garuntee. ya gm and ford are going down, but downtown detroit is improving every minute, its now a safer downtown than the U.S average for downtowns in major cities. and its improving, yes its still loosing people, but they are working on it everyday, and i can see a bright moment in detroits future, i can see gm and ford fighting back to be a lead auto industry again, and i can see more companies headquarters located in detroit, it will be very long, hard work, but i can see detroit hitting 1,000,000 people again.

I say Austin and San Antonio have great futures. These two cities have very strong lively downtowns and robust economies. Both metros are growing into each other creating a great metroplex.

Historical timeline since mans known beginnings. HMMMMMM.The US isn't even that old and already what it stood for has been overturned. If you look at history every civilization has crumbled, been in wars, and had the same problems. I don't see how anything has changed except for the technology we have. You see the same patterns everywhere throughout history. A place might start out good, but then it falls apart and people try to rebuild a new one in its place. Its a never ending cycle. Except the stakes are always rising.

Man has a fatal flaw. Its undeniable. And when nations become complacent, or careless, or indifferent, their society naturally deteriorates. Some of the cities doing better now might be ahead in what they termed the paradigm shift, but they have traded away the future for today. The exact opposite of what I would consider a bright future at this point in time.

Actually, my impression of Omaha was neither positive nor negative. But after being beaten over the head with it in this forum, it's definitely negative now.

Mine was positive, at least initially prior to moving to Omaha. My Uncle had nothing but good things to say about the place and at the time it prompted me to leave Kansas City and head up the road to Omaha. Turned out to be a mistake. While the people in Omaha were easier to get along with than Kansas City, the place itself was anything but a great place to live or work.

That would only be apparent to you then. I don't think one other person in this forum that has read my messages concerning this subject would view me as a booster of Omaha. It has its good points and bad. I try to be objective and give an honest assessment of any place or subject that I discuss. It's not the Garden of Eden that you and a couple of other people attempt to make it out to be.

WILW Radio is an Omaha booster and I'm president of the Atlanta Visitors' Bureau. We both try to be open-minded here. No place is perfect. Except Omaha.

to a certain extent I was being sarcastic.
I agree Omaha is over promoted by myself and GoNe. I'm going to make a realistic effort to be more objective, seeing as that was my original goal until someone really ticked me off and I forgot to be reasonable. For some reason, it stuck. my bad!
