General Electric is moving their headquarters to from Fairfield, Connecticut to Boston.
Boston was chosen over New York, Atlanta , Providence.
The company cited the 55 top research universities in the Greater Boston area.

Apparently, the low taxes offered by Kansas were not a big draw.....

Given the level of intelligence of the people there "educated" in the last 30 years I'd have to say "duh".

So they moved to avoid taxes, and they picked Boston....
JamesB is having a rough night. Why didn't GE move to the toothless South ? Because Boston has 55 higher learning facilities. You know, that fancy book learnin' stuff again. :yahoo::yahoo::yahoo::yahoo::yahoo::yahoo:

Ted Kennedy started the Big Dig in Boston which went many times over budget. When the Big Dig was finally finished it started falling apart. Some McDonalds in Massachusetts require employees working the cash register to have a four year college degree. hmm

The Big Dig was run by Bechtel, that was the deal, Reagan would back the deal if Bechtel managed it, 5 members of Reagan's cabinet came from Bechtel.

The Big Dig was Ted Kennedy's baby and it only took a few days after opened before a woman was driving to work when a part of the top of the tunnel fell on her car, killing her and totaling her car.
