The great escape from New York is simply reason and economics.  What I wanna know is why anyone would ever go there / stay there in the first place.  Where I come from, the joke is  -  The bad news, a lot of people were killed when the towers went down, the good news ?  they were nearly all New Yorkers. I've lived in many places in the usA, and can pick out the whiny, loud, forceful, obnoxious, pushy a-holes in that famous New York minute. Wouldn't live there with those irritating pompous as**s without a gun to my head.  jd
