Oh, the shame

Minneapolis is ranked ahead of St Paul in terms of literacy. On the up side, both cities are in the top 10, which makes Minnesota the only state nationwide with two cities in the top 10.

The rankings are interesting to me because they attempt to measure internet access, libraries, and newspaper circulation in separate categories. A place like Seattle ( ranked #1 overall) is first in internet access (well, duh!) but nowhere on the newspaper circulation list. A sign of the times…
