It's not Austin or Denver, but Tampa Bay is getting cooler
The Tampa Bay metro area has struggled for decades with the idea that it is not a "cool" place to live and work. At least when compared to the hippest cities. Austin, Texas, is music/tech cool. We're not. Boston is brainy/youth cool. We're not. Washington, D.C., is public policy/power cool. We're not. Denver is mountain mecca cool. We're not. But are we cooler than we used to be? Most definitely. When I relocated to Tampa Bay 21 years ago, if I mentioned the word "hip," people would ask when I was getting mine replaced. Tampa Bay Times

Rick Perry, who helped immigrant students with in-state tuition, says Obama “lawless” for order not to deport them
Rick Perry, who as governor supported in-state tuition for immigrant students in Texas, said Sunday President Obama was “lawless” with his order not to deport these same students. Perry was on the CBS show Face the Nation. He watched a clip of himself during the GOP primary accusing Republicans of “having no heart” in opposing Texas subsidizing the children of illegal immigrants with in-state tuition. He said that’s different than Obama’s order protecting illegal immigrants brought into the U.S. as children from deportation. Dallas Morning News

Rogue dolphin menacing waters in Lake Pontchartrain near Slidell, La.
A cozy sanctuary on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain near the twin span bridges, Lakeshore Estates is full of upscale homes on large lots lining peninsulas among a series of waterways connected to the lake. It's an ideal place for a home. Even a dolphin thinks so. A lone male bottle-nosed dolphin has made one of the waterways its home since Hurricane Katrina, when its parents probably swam into the waterway for safety, marine experts say. Soon after the storm, the parents left the area, leaving their newborn calf behind. Lately, the rogue dolphin has become a problem. It's biting swimmers and boaters, sending three of them to Slidell Memorial Hospital in the past year, a hospital spokeswoman said. Times- Picayune

This is our annual "Made in the South" issue and it's timely because there is a new player in the South's manufacturing universe. For almost two decades, economic developers and politicos in the South and the U.S. have been chasing Chinese projects with little or nothing to show. Want proof we've been chasing ghosts in China for years? Okay, go ahead and name a Chinese brand that's made in the South? Tick. . .tick. . .tick. Give up?
