Most places in the World are more attractive than inland Texas.

Turned-down two Investment job offers in Texas <1979 & 1982> because one of the "Selling points of the actually "Just Silly" 1979 offer was that there were NO State Income Taxes in Texas <A total insult to my Intelligence not to think I did NOT already know that>. The 1982 offer was actually competitive, half-a-mil + big sign-on bonus. I feared that the company could be on-the-block to be sold. One year later Rotan was acquired by PWMH in NYC. Everyone in the Investment Research Department was "Forced to move to NYC. The then Director of Research took the same position at a San Francisco Investment Banking and Institutional Investment brokerage firm.
