Lawton, best in Oklahoma?

Jacksonville, best in North Carolina?

BWWAHAHAAAAAAA!

I'm sorry, but these are laughable selections.

Note the immediate bias: Only towns over 50,000 were considered.

There are fewer than 10 cities in Iowa that have 50,000. Everyone else
lives in the sticks, I guess.

Of course they would choose Omaha! Their only two choices in Nebraska, based on 50,000 or more population, were Omaha and Lincoln.

However, I scratched my head a little over their listing of why Omaha was great for kids. Good schools, OK, I can agree with that. But the symphony???

How could they have nary a mention of the Henry Doorly Zoo? Here's a paragraph from Wikipedia about the zoo (I'm not sure when it was updated so some of this may be old statistics):

"It features the largest cat complex in North America; "Kingdoms of the Night" is the world's largest nocturnal exhibit and indoor swamp; the Lied Jungle is the world's largest indoor rainforest'; and the "Desert Dome" is the world's largest indoor desert, as well as the largest geodesic dome in the world."

I personally don't have a problem with the Michigan selection of Ann Arbor, but I am sure many social conservatives would disagree and would deem the city anti-family.

I 've not one thing against Ann Arbor-beautiful place. When I lived in Michigan Ann Arbor was not within my means financially though. I am not only talking homes but apartments due the University there. Linda

I was thinking that leaving them in the capable hands of an aboriginal Australian village would have ranked number one

Yo, Chick. I live just south of you. I thought for sure Naperville would be the pick.

I thought Naperville ran out of water.
