    Urbandale: Now within an hour of KC AND MSP!!

    Ok so maybe not but at least someone at Business Week thinks so!

    Iowa: Urbandale
    Number of households: 16,402
    Pct. Chg: +8% since 2008 (+44% since 2000)
    Average household income: $93,655 (+12% since 2000)
    Why: Urbandale, within an hour's drive from Kansas City and Minneapolis, has a lower unemployment rate than the national average. The insurance and finance industries are major employers.

    Forbes, Money, and Yahoo consistently **** up their "stats" about midwestern cities/towns. It's absolutely hilarious.

    Lol I caught that too.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?
