Kiplingers Puts Charlottesville on Another "Best Place" List

Is there a problem at the advertiser magazine?  Is it a lack of resources, or reporters, or the ability to analyze data?  Though many locals told the advertiser magazine's editors they were flat-out wrong (comments section)  apropos their last list, K has decided C'ville is a good place to live, this time for retirees.  Lots of doctors and free cultural events, courtesy UVA.  The drawbacks they note?  High cost of living and housing, inadequate public transportation, and lack of tax breaks.  And...oh yeah, lack of significant services for seniors.  But: Hey, Seniors!  Come on over!  RE sales are in the toilet here--Come spend your life savings, as this area needs all the help it can get.
