Fight over this Americans!!

U.S. City With the Smartest People Is...

...Minneapolis, Minnesota. That's the word from researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater who studied statistics from five categories and 13 different measures of literacy to provide a ranking for all cities with a population of 250,000 or more. The literacy profile for each city included citizens' educational level, newspaper circulation rates, library resources, number of periodicals published, and the number of booksellers.



The 10 most literate U.S. cities are:
1. Minneapolis, Minnesota
2. Seattle, Washington
3. Denver, Colorado
4. Atlanta, Georgia
5. San Francisco, California
6. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
7. Washington, D.C.
8. Louisville, Kentucky
9. Portland, Oregon
10. Cincinnati, Ohio

when you get a haircut (read haircut to mean mullet-ectomy) and you want to prevent the hair from making a mess all over the floor, if you put a sheet or perhaps newspaper down, it makes for easier cleaning

just in case someone without a sense of humour wanders into this thread: i'm joking.
