Indianapolis for Amazon's HQ 2?

Althouse discusses the possibility that Amazon will pick Indianapolis for its second headquarters.

I suspect that Amazon will choose Denver because it has a major airport, beautiful surroundings, and is hipster enough to attract the Seattle crowd.

But Indianapolis would be a sound choice.

I lived there for several months while attending Adjutant General training at Fort Benjamin Harrison. [It was my first exposure to the work of Peter Drucker.]

Alas, Fort Ben is no more but I really grew to like the area and its residents. True, there was the occasional tornado warning but, aside from the remote possibility that your home and all of your belongings might be blown away, the place was green and pleasant.

Perhaps Amazon doesn't need a place that's "cool."
