We're #1

So in this moment, I get to join with the rest of America in cheering for some great accomplishment of their city. I understand that this ritual usually surrounds sporting activities, but this is more my style.

Seattle is the most literate city in the United States!


Ok, it's only so interesting. If not for the social aspect of what pushes one city above another (poverty, social programs, accessibility, blighting weather), then why we feel the need to endlessly rank, compare, and compete.

I lived in Tacoma. How can two cities so near to each other be so different? It's nice to know that Seattle has other good points besides coffee, sea views and culture. Reading is good. :)
