Portland Named America's Ninth Smartest City

Portland, Oregon has been named the ninth smartest city in America. 25% of Portlanders have had some college. 25%? That's well over a third.

Not sure if you've seen "An Incovenient Truth" yet, but I think it is a MUST SEE.

Sure, it isn't 100% - as some parts are a little hyped, but overall this should be a must see for all Americans -right and left.

In the last three months, I have come across two "events" (for lack of a better term) that I feel all Americans MUST do.

1) Visit New Orleans - you will never look at "America" the same ever again

2) "An Incovenient Truth" - Even naysayers will be awestruck by this film.

I gather from your math that you were once a precinct worker in Ohio.

Actually, Bill, the stats show that 63 percent of Portlanders have had "some college." The 25 percent is people who attended but didn't graduate. Those who earned degrees comprise another 38 percent.

So it's well over three-fourths, right?
