It's always good news when neighboring states enjoy prosperity, we could use a dose of that right here in Minnesota. Call me crazy, but if I were a Minnesota politician, I'd be in Fargo right now picking the city fathers brains for their formula for success. But, like I said, call me crazy.
North Dakota, the state with the nation's lowest unemployment rate, capped a decade of economic prosperity with dramatic population growth in its biggest cities.
Fargo added nearly 15,000 residents to hit a record population of 105,549, the Census Bureau reported Wednesday. Its fast-growing neighbor of West Fargo added an additional 11,000 residents to reach a population of 25,830.
