"Head south, young graduate."

"Go west, young man," newspaper editor Horace Greeley is credited with having challenged young men during America's phase of westward expansion. Now a similar thing is happening.

Elon Musk has moved to Texas and he wants people to follow him to live near his SpaceX launch pad.

Alita Bagley, who heads the South Padre Island Chamber of Commerce, says she expects young professionals to take Musk up on his offer. Musk seems serious about his need for workers, since he's donating 30-million-dollars to the area for schools and urban revitalization.

It's not clear what that entails, but he promised more details next week.
