South Dakota: open for business?

I wonder how many former residents of New Orleans and other ex-coastal dwellers our friends in South Dakota are prepared to take.

Update: Jon Schaff has a new tourism slogan for South Dakota: "Great Faces, Great Places, No Hurricanes."

Personally, I think this idea of the hurricane victims migrating to South Dakota is great- I spent 4 months there last year, and there is so much space and empty land to build or buy houses that it’s ridiculous no one has moved there yet.

Then again, there are really only about 25 people who actually live in South Dakota...

A buddy of mine that lives in south Dakota told me that a bunch of em are living in the nicest hotel in his town (Souix Falls). He said he will give them a week longer then he’ll start inviting them to go back home. These people are extremely lazy and would be happy to just live there forever if no one stopped them.

There is no real future for people such as these in a social desert like the Dakotas (where extractive industries and agriculture rule). It’s stupid to ship urban folk, particularly those who have been dependent on welfare, to such a place. They need jobs, education, and a future. The Great Plains are dying, and such people can’t help them in the least.

Hold on a minute--didn’t the Red River of the North in the Dakotas flood a few years back?

I think it did, and I blame Bush!--even if it happened before he became President, I’m sure Karl Rove had a reason for causing this flood when he did.

End of sarcasm.
