Hey, We're Smart!

We always laugh about how odd Boulder, CO is, but apparently we rank as #1 in the "Smartest Cities" in the US, followed by Bethesda, MD and Ann Arbor, MI.

The home of Apple, Google, Yahoo, and the rest of silicon valley (San Jose) falls in at tenth.

They base the ranking on the number of people with college degrees, which is obviously a fairly flawed way to determine intelligence (some of the best educated people are surprisingly stupid in real life), and it obviously favors college towns...but still, it's neat!

I guess the use of fragment sentences wasn't a category in the "Smartness Rating."

Oy. I edited. Because I'm a freak.
