Ok so I've been away for awhile and now I'm posting like a crack addict.

So I read this story and figured that I should send my resume to Forbes. They obviously need some writers.

Sooo...the #1 most educated small town in America boasts the NIH, National Library of Medicine, Nuclear Regulatory Commision and corporate HQs of Marriot and Lockheed-Martin? What in the name of God kind of small town is that?

#3 was a suburb of LA.

I'm SO confused. I guess then Chicago is a small town because it's smaller than NY and LA?

Should I e-mail my resume or send it snail mail?

I'm sure York, PA just missed the list. Maybe 21?

Looks like they're just saying any area with a population under x is a small town. Bethesda shouldn't even count. It's unincorporated, so its town population is zero! And no, It has no resemblance to a small town. The fact that I ride the subway under it on the way to work should disqualify it then and there!

Hey, Chick, they don't need writers - they need editors! That story is so full of holes it could pass for Swiss cheese..

Get your resume ready and aim for the top.

Should have read, "some of America's wealthiest suburbs. Palo Alto, small? Give me a break, they're surrounded by more than 8 million people. West Lafayette In is indeed small, and I'm sure there were a few other "real towns" (meaning not suburbs) but really.
