Moving from the coast

Michael Barone has yet another fascinating piece in The Wall Street Journal today on demographic/political trends. Bottom line: the coastal areas are growing economically stratified. Housing costs and other demographic trends may be driving away the middle class, while immigrants are moving into the coastal big cities. Meanwhile, plenty of other lower-cost cities are growing fast -- to twist Barone's story a bit, it may now be 'hip' to be 'un-hip.'
