Literate Cities

The list of top ten literate cities is out today. Minneapolis slipped to number two. Our pals across the river made it on the list at number 10. Now public radio was discussing this news this morning and explaining how it was we slipped from the number one spot. This year the survey added internet literacy. Seattle was ranked one and Minneapolis ten which allowed Seattle to take the top position. Seattle has a bit of an advantage since it has Microsoft not far away. But Seattle shouldn't get complaisant about it's number one spot. Minneapolis is already scheming. Midwesterners aren't as nice as you think they are. We want our number one position back and we'll do what it takes. You've been warned Seattle.
