Exodus

Movement of Jah people:
Ponder the latest report from United Van Lines’ migration experts. It says the population exodus from Orange County continues. At least, via its moving vans.

In 2009’s first half, 55% of the moves handled by United were outbound from Orange County. That’s an exit rate up slightly from the 54.3% rate for all of 2008. (Psst! California’s exit rate also is up this year!)

So where are all these folks going to?

Well, if it’s by United, the top destination is Texas, followed by the state of Washington; elsewhere in California; Florida and Virginia.

Not that it's at all relevant, but the top income tax rates in the four destination states are 0%, 0%, 0%, and 5.75%.
