Final Five Cities Amazon Considered for 'HQ2'

Is it better to come close and miss, or to never come close at all? That's one of the great mysteries of life. Is it better to make it to the Final Four and lose or to miss it entirely? Is it better to be the runner-up on The Bachelor or sent home early? Four cities now have to answer a similar question.

The Philadelphia Inquirer, citing a new book by journalist Brad Stone, reports that Jeff Bezos, Andy Jassy, and other senior Amazon leaders compiled a final list of five cities to consider for Amazon's highly-discussed "HQ2," the $5 billion expansion of its headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The list consisted of Dallas, Los Angeles, New York City, Northern Virginia, and Nashville.

Amazon ultimately chose Crystal City, Arlington, Virginia.

Fine, I'll address it: yes, Amazon and OutKick were almost neighbors in Nashville.
