Booming Pennsylvania?

For just about the most positive commentary ever (well, in an awfully long time at least) written on the state of Pennsylvania, economically or otherwise, see the article written by national columnist David Ignatius: Electoral pessimism can't hide Pennsylvania's fine future.

and I like to think of myself as a positive guy, but the punch line from this verbatim is that " this state is truly a laboratory for change".

Wow. I have to move there.

Dr. Doom rears his head! Seriously, though, I've said a million times, and I'll say it again: this region and this state don't give ourselves the credit we deserve--or get the proper credit from others--for navigating from a heavy-industrial economy to a post-industrial economy. The transition isn't perfect, or complete, but it is dramatic compared to most of the upper Midwest or upstate NY.

Agreed, anonymous. Pittsburgh's story is somewhat distinct from much of the rest of the Rust Belt... and IMO we have a brighter present... and future.
