Phoenix, it would be fine if the people didn't drink water, they didn't have lawns, pools, or golf courses.

Charlotte and Raleigh would be somewhere on that list too - trying too hard to be another NYC.

How are you going to slow growth without stiffling the economic growth?On one hand, people complain about a bad economy, but then turn aroundand want to stifle economic growth. Putting limits on growth is bad policyall around.
