UPDATE: What does “brain drain” mean in Birmingham?

UPDATE: 5.14.2009,  WBHM has posted audio from an interview with Jerry Hartley conducted by their own Andrew Yeager. Their piece also contains additional side notes to the story.

Yesterday’s Five Points South Merchants Association meeting on Birmingham’s Southside apparently became a little “contentious” towards the end as it looks like The J. Clyde owner Jerry Hartley and Mayor Larry Langford appeared to have different opinions about the term “brain drain” and what it means for our region’s future.

I’ve got an opinion and I’ve posted it over on My Birmingham.

We’d love hear your thoughts about whether or not Birmingham’s suffering from a brain drain over on Magic City Question.
