From the Porch: Need your help: Why would anyone want to live in Key West?

Help me out here: We keep asking: How can we get people to come here? How can we improve the "experience" for our visitors. Ought we not be asking instead "what must we do to become a place where people want to live"? There are a bazillion unscientific surveys that say Key West is a "top 10 this-that-and-the-other," but those things are always about why VISITORS want to be in Key West. I think we should ask: Why one would choose Key West as the place to move to be a teacher, doctor, lawyer, business owner, cop, firefighter, etc. You know, the kinds of jobs and professions that make a little-town-big-city a great place to put down long-term roots.
