America's Dumbest Cities

 
Portfolio.com ranked the 200 biggest metropolitan areas in the U.S. from smartest to dumbest.  It's based on the number of people with high school, college, and post-graduate degrees, and what the people with those degrees are earning.

Most of the smartest cities are homes to major universities.  Boulder, Colorado, finished first . . . that's the home of the University of Colorado.  And Ann Arbor, Michigan . . . the home of the University of Michigan . . . came in second.

The rest of the top 10 are Washington, D.C. . . . Durham, North Carolina . . . Fort Collins, Colorado . . . Stamford, Connecticut . . . San Jose, California . . . Boston, Massachusetts . . . Madison, Wisconsin . . . and San Francisco.

And now to the other end of the scale.  Merced, California was named the dumbest . . . or to put it more gently, LEAST SMART . . . city in the country.  McAllen-Edinburg, Texas came in second.

The rest of the bottom 10 are:  Brownsville, Texas . . . Visalia, California . . . Bakersfield, California . . . Yakima, Washington . . . Laredo, Texas . . . Hickory, North Carolina . . . Fort Smith, Arkansas . . . and Modesto, California.  (Portfolio)
