Raleigh Makes Forbes Best Places...

I was shocked to read that Forbes 2008 ranked Raleigh, North Carolina #1 on their list of Best Places for Business &! Its pretty neat to have good 'Ol Raleigh on the map for something as noteworthy as that. Charlotte, NC ranked 3rd which leads me to believe that nothin' could be finer than a job in Carolina!

See for yourself:

No. 1: Raleigh, N.C.

(Raleigh-Cary metro area)
2008 Population: 1,088,765
2007-2008 Change: 4.29%

Raleigh, which ranked first on Forbes' 2008 list of best places for business and careers, has done well with its hospitals, universities and more than 170 research and development companies. However, the unemployment rate for January 2009 was 7.9%, just 0.2% below the national rate.
