I moved from SF to West Texas a year ago and immediately found better paying work with an exceptional arts organization. I also found an incredible community of people who worked hard to push the envelope in their creative endeavors and civic engagement. While Texas may not be as ethnically diverse as California (it is predominantly Hispanic and Anglo) it is philosophically, politically, and socially diverse. This article is just snarky and reductive, which unfortunately most of SF has become since the Google/Apple/ Tech start up crowd took over. Its no longer a bastion for the super radical but for the super rich. So long, Golden State... I'll be in Texas.

Parts of Texas are quite nice but most of it is flat and boring. Also if you get in an accident you have no rights. And your kids are likely to get pregnant.

@Sean Kerns There is one reason to stay: it's not Texas.

 If you need educated workers for your business, Texas would be the last place to move.
