Topeka, KS is one of 10 best cities for the next decade [from Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Mag]

Wow.  I feel fortunate to live in Topeka.  It might be the world famous zoo, the re-fueler tankers flying overhead, or the fact that Google became Topeka this past April 1, 2010.  Whatever it is, check out what Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine editors had to say about Topeka as #10 for the best cities for the next decade.

In its reserved, midwestern way, Topeka has engineered a prosperity that most cities of similar size would envy. As the capital city of Kansas, nearly 25% of Topeka’s workforce is employed by the government, providing a stable job market where unemployment has stayed around 7%. The city boasts quality schools, friendly people, good hospitals, a university and — one of its biggest selling points — low housing costs.  [Source]
