Amazon set the economic development community abuzz recently by announcing its search for a new, second headquarters. This massive development would bring 50,000 good paying jobs ($100,000 annual wages on average) and $5 billion worth of development to the metro that Amazon chooses. These are game changing numbers.

Amazon wont come to KC area. After the Tysons chicken fail Amazon won't have any cluckers to ship with their groceries.

Marc is hopelessly obtuse and don't know how to play for the win. Note how poor they are at selling. But aren't they the Hall's pet on a short leash. Talk about low energy.
