Stonecrest, Georgia, will rename itself Amazon, Ga., if the e-commerce titan chooses to build its second headquarters there, bringing 50,000 jobs with an average salary above $100,000. The mayor of Kansas City, Missouri, apparently channeled all his free time into writing 1,000 five-star reviews about Amazon products to pimp his city. Tucson sent CEO Jeff Bezos a 21-foot saguaro cactus. As for Phoenix’s West Valley? There are 320 acres in Peoria to be named “Amazon Innovation Village,” two potential sites in Surprise and a $1,000 new job credit per employee earning $50,000 a year in Glendale. Yawn?
