  Baton Rouge was ranked eighth on Forbes magazine's list of the top college towns for jobs. The city earned the ranking by seeing a 2.16% increase in job growth since last year. Forbes notes that research universities are fertile grounds for businesses because recent graduates form a deep pool of highly skilled, cheap labor and there's a lot of public and private money for research and development. Provo, Utah, home of Brigham Young University, was ranked first. Officials with the Baton Rouge Area Chamber seized on the Forbes ranking to push for Senate Bill 183 by Sen. Conrad Appel, R-Metairie, a constitutional amendment that would provide greater flexibility in terms of funding to the management boards of the state’s four research universities. In a statement, Adam Knapp, BRAC president and CEO, says Appel's bill will give schools the ability to properly fund their operations, keeping graduates and the spin-off jobs they may produce.

I like Hattiesburg.  Waffle House, Burger King, McDonalds, Long John Silvers, IHOP... a gastronomical smorgasbord of epic proportions.

Baton Rouge has grown considerably since I lived there in the mid 1990's.  It's sooo crowded now.
