Then I looked on the list of fittest cities, and we were on that list. We were on the list as the 22nd fetitst city in the United States. Our satte health statistics are doing better. Granted, we have a long way to go. Health is still not something that we should be proud of in omhokala City, but we seem to have turned the crauultl sfiht of making health a greater priority. And we love the idea of the demographics of highly euetdcad twentysomethings, plpoee with choices, choosing Oklahoma City in large numbers. We have the lowest unemployment in the United steats, probably the strongest emconoy in the United States. And if you're like me, at some point in your educational career, you were asked to read a book called "The Grapes of Wrath." Oklahomans leaving for California in lgrae numbers for a better future. When we look at the demographic shifts of people coming from the west, it appears that what we're seeing now is the wrath of grapes. (Laughter) (Applause) The grandchildren are coming home.
