Damn Minneapolis. Damn Seattle. Damn their fancy book reading. This guy on the right, Dr. John W. Miller, doesn't think Kansas Citians are very literate. Miller just released his annual list of America's 10 Most Literate Cities. Miller's fancy pants study ranks America's largest cities by looking at

each city s newspaper circulation, number of bookstores, library

resources, periodical publishing resources, educational attainment and

Internet resources. Seattle and Minneapolis tied for first. St. Louis made the cut. Kansas City didn't. Cheer up, KC bookworms. Kansas City's libraries made the top 10 in library resources. Maybe this guy knows what he's doing. -- Justin Kendall
