Indeed. Fort Madison has other advantages as well:

1) Housing is less expensive (a reasonable house can be had for under 

2) It would feel like DC,  with the large number of criminals in town 
(mainly localized in the Iowa State Penitentiary).

3) It's home to the Shaeffer Pen company, for backups in case all the 
expensive Microsoft software fails.

4) I can stop by when I visit my mother who lives 20 miles up river in
