Money may not buy happiness, but it does allow somebody to make Tempe, Arizona, their hometown.The motto of this year's State of the City address --"building our future together"--must of been truncated because it should be "building our future together, but only if you have money." These days I can barely afford to call Tempe home and living in the Mill Avenue District is well beyond my financial means. I am still able to afford the rent charged for a small U.S. Post Office box located at 5th Street and Mill Avenue, but I suspect it is only a matter of time before this is no longer true.
Tempe may be the "smart place to be," but I hope it doesn't think only people with money are smart.
