Forbes released this year’s Best Places for Business and Careers with Raleigh, NC and Durham, NC both making the top 10.  Raleigh, NC came in a #2 and Durham, NC came in at #8 according to the list for Best Metros.  The home town of my alma mater (Las Cruces, NM) came in as #2 on the Best Smaller Metros list.  

I find it very interesting (and odd) that of all places, Albuquerque, NM came in as #1 on the list.  It must be attributed to the fact that it was rated #1 for Cost of Doing Business.
