I guess it's a good thing a rational fan base is not a criteria.  Every time I long in these days I feel the same way I feel when my wife tunes into 90210 or another one of her shows.  A sense of dread combined with incredulity but, kind of like when I drive by an accident, I can't help but be fascinated by the chaos.  Maybe it’s contagious because now I’m mixing metaphors.  I better not spend to much time here.

...I thought I had a job in Ft. Collins on lockdown. Then the firm I was planning on joining went, "LOL hiring freeze!!!"

Nice area though, great town, friendly people. Housing is still in an insane bubble though, and it would be nice if Rocky Mtn. skiing was closer.

They have Bridgeport, CT on that list.  If anyone has ever been there, you know that you are more likely to get stabbed in the neck than get a college education there.  That is my go-to backyard ghetto if I am ever in need of some crack or gunshot wounds.

Ann Arbor, where the person serving up your latte probably has a PhD!

My former housemate went to med school and did his residency here.  When he moved to Milwaukee he said it was awesome to be in a place where women were actually impressed you were a doctor.

I'm surprised Detroit was as high as it is.  The area around Wayne St. probably helps, but I thought the cities massive education problems would crater it in the statistics.
