Nothing wrong with a little healthy debate now and again especially if it is done in a civil manner. I've finished my piece on the subject.

if youve noticed Omaha is NOT on the list. thats because we have heard enough about it and its time to mention some of these other great cities. if you want to add to list, go right ahead, but DO NOT mention OMAHA. we have enough information on that.
Lexington's economy is good. Lexmark is one of the big employers here. The Southeast part of town known as Hamburg is booming and has been for about 8 years. A 36 story building known as Centre Pointe is planned to be built downtown. Also the World Equestrian Games will be played at the Kentucky Horse Park in 2010.

You should add Omaha to that list. For those that don't know, it's the corner of Nebraska with people. Its economy is very strong.

I just joined this forum and find hysterical (if not a bit embarrassing) all of the Omaha promotion Iíve read thus far. Fellow Omahans: No one outside of Omaha cares! LOL I love my city as much as the next guy, but jeesh. Show some self-moderation.

I would add Birmingham to the list. Unemployment at 4%, the highest growth in household incomes over the past 30 years, and the country's sixth-best hiring outlook for 3Q according to the latest Manpower survey.
