Why did those you know leave Spokane?

It always amuses me when I hear someone interpret an individual's decision to move away from here as some sort of sweeping indictment of the Spokane area's real or imagined shortcomings.

In my experience -- or at least that of certain friends -- it usually has more to do with getting away from horrible bosses in highly specialized fields or pursuing career opportunities that do not exist in Spokane.

I'm not saying that no one leaves because they simply don't like Spokane. I just know that isn't the case each and every time.

What have you observed?
