One problem is, people on the coasts tend to forget how much lower the
cost of living (mostly housing) is in many of the states in the middle.
No, you probably won't make $100,000 as a TW in Oklahoma. But you'll
live well on half of that, and you won't have to pay $200,000 for a
2-bedroom home 90 minutes away from work, either. So if you're only
seeing smaller salaries, you're comparing apples and oranges. Obviously,
many people just *prefer* to live in California, no matter how much it
costs, and that's wonderful. But if you think you can't afford to move
because you can't make the same salary in Kansas, you may be surprised.

Yep. :-)

who thought California was a very nice place to visit, but would hate to
live there
