Brooks also notes that Sioux Falls will be where it's at!
Over the next 40 years, [geographer Joel] Kotkin argues, urban downtowns will continue their modest (and perpetually overhyped) revival, but the real action will be out in the compact, self-sufficient suburban villages. Many of these places will be in the sunbelt — the drive to move there remains strong — but Kotkin also points to surging low-cost hubs on the Plains, like Fargo, Dubuque, Iowa City, Sioux Falls, and Boise [David Brooks, "Relax, We'll Be Fine," New York Times, 2010.04.05].
O.K., Boise isn't exactly the Plains. But quit your grousing: Sioux Falls made the New York Times! Whoo-hoo!
