An annual survey of the top 75 U.S. metropolitan areas named Washington, DC, as the most literate city in America.  The study is based on the number and frequency of use of libraries, bookstores, newspapers, magazines and the Internet. 

- The city council of Columbus, Ohio immediately demanded a recount saying, “There ain’t no way those numbers is korrect!”

- I would have guessed the most literate city would have been Reading, Pennsylvania.
