Do you think Lawrence deserves to be ranked the seventh smartest city in the country?
Asked at Borders, 700 N.H. on February 21, 2008
“I personally think we do. We’re up-to-date and involved with international affairs, new technology, environmental concerns, and we’re always making progress.”
“Well, I’ll take it. It sounds like a compliment to me.”
“Honestly, I have a hard time believing it. Lawrence does have a lot of culture, education and an intellectual community overall. It seems like a good melting pot with a lot of diversity, but seventh sounds a little high.”
“Definitely. I think so. Lawrence is such an academic center and is more politically, internationally and environmentally aware. There’s an emphasis on culture here that you don’t find in your average city.”
