Twin Cities: We're smarter than you

The Daily Beast has made a list of the smartest cities, and we rank No. 4!

We get plaudits for our high percentage of bachelors degrees and voter participation.

But R.T. Rybak isn't going to let us rest on our laurels:

"Knowing that we might be the best or one of the best on these key measures shouldn't stop us from striving to do better," says Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak.

Here's the entire entry, bad Prince jokes and all:

Minneapolis' public-education system seems to have tragically failed its most famous son, Prince, composer of the curiously spelled "I Would Die 4 U." But for everyone else it must be doing something right. The Twin Cities' excellent scores in bachelor's degrees per capita and voter participation vaulted them to the top five of our list. The Midwestern work ethic doesn't hurt. "Knowing that we might be the best or one of the best on these key measures shouldn't stop us from striving to do better," says Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak.
