OKC grew at 8.16%, DSM 8.32% and OMA 5.54%, yet again top accolades without the prosperity.

I just read this article. It also has a link to a related article that indicates that popular cities that formerly ranked high in quality of life, economic growth and affordability seem invariably to become so popular that they cease being affordable places to own or rent a home. Portland, Oregon is listed as a good example of a city no longer deemed affordable. And the article emphasizes that the key to keeping a city affordable is in making sure it's housing supply keeps growing as fast as possible. Particularly rental housing.
I have no idea how Omaha stacks up in terms of constructing enough housing units to satisfy growing demand. Apparently we are doing good enough.

I did as well. Love how snarky comments slamming us got approved right away, but positive comments still wait.

The hate is strong with the Gizmodo set.
