    I ... I ... I don't ... I don't understand ... shouldn't the population be literate to be considered smart?

    I'm a little surprised that Pullman is the only town of the left coast on this list

    Looks like relatively small towns with large universities.

    Re: Smartest Towns

    Moderately(relatively so anyways) sized college towns are full of smart people, who'd have guessed? The most curious inclusion is Appleton, no large university/college there as far as I know.

    I'm curious how Cedar Rapids made #30. Coe, Mt. Mercy, and Kirkwood don't fit the large university/small town mode like the others on the list.

    Interesting that despite how highly UT holds itself, Austin is not on that list.
