  1. With a very few exceptions like Minneapolis and Seattle those good green dots look like right to work states to me.

  2. I’m totally out of the loop. So, someone please tell me what the heck is going on in Omaha/Council Bluffs, Des Moines, and Macon that earns them the big green dots. Thanks.

    • Omaha is bigger than you think. They have a strong base of financial companies thanks in large part to Warren Buffet. They have a strong railroad industry with both Union Pacific and Warren Buffet’s BNSF. And, they also have a strong agriculture industry with the most notable being beef and steak.

      And yes, they have a new arena, a new ballpark, a new marina, an amazing new Bob Kerry pedestrian bridge (it shakes the heck out of you when you get in the middle) over the missouri river, a brand new Lewis & Clark interpretive center, a new natatorium, and an old market along a canal district. Go to Omaha, it’s Evansville’s 2001 master plan come alive.
