The annual list of America`s cities where reading is most and least popular has come out again, and once more America`s most literate pundits remain baffled by why reading is popular in some metropolitan areas but not in others:
America`s 5 most literate cities:
5. Denver, Colo.
4. Pittsburgh, Pa.
3. Minneapolis, Minn.
2. Seattle, Wash.
1. Washington, D.C.
America`s five least literate cities:
5. Anaheim, Calif.
4. El Paso, Texas
3. Stockton, Calif.
2. Corpus Christi, Texas
1. Bakersfield, Calif.
You know what we need to fix the problems of Anaheim, El Paso, Stockton, Corpus Christi, and Bakersfield?
Granted, I`m not sure exactly why, but I`ve been reading a lot of punditry lately, and that seems to be solution for just about everything, so why not literacy?
