(MENAFN -Arab News) NEW YORK: It’s Washington’s annual excuse to feel superior to San Francisco. For the fourth straight year, the nation’s capital has been named the most literate city in America.The list is compiled each year by Central Connecticut State University, which, weirdly, is in a state that contains none of The Most Literate Cities in America.CCSU considers each city’s “bookstores, educational attainment, Internet resources, library resources, periodical publishing resources and newspaper circulation.” (And did I mention “newspaper circulation“? Work with me here, people!)Only cities that have populations of more than 250,000 are ranked, which keeps the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn from eating the District of Columbia’s lunch (not that it would eat Washington’s non-kale lunch). But New York, in fact, which boasts a few novelists, a sweet library and an up-and-coming newspaper, comes in at No. 16 — way behind Kansas City (ouch!). Happily, I’ve only worked in Top 10 cities — St. Louis, Boston, Washington — so I have no idea what harrowing darkness the poor folks in Los Angeles (No. 64) must endure.
