A great little article from a great periodical City Journal on the hemorrhaging of people out of New York state. Living in North Carolina - I cannot believe how many Buffalo ex-pats there are down here. It is great as I have a fondness for the city.
However, I have one piece of advice for all the New England refugees down here. Please remember that it was voting for tax and spend big government politicians in your home states that destroyed your economies, and thus the reason why you're down here. We don't want those policies here.
