Are you dense? The ranking is about EVENTS! Why is that so hard for you to understand? It seems pretty simple to me and to other people reading this thread. The cities are ranked on EVENTS by and EVENT company. Get it through your head and stop trying to argue about it. Good God.

I think the bookworm cities have been covered. As far as an eventful city, Milwaukee is hard to beat in the summer. Starting with Summerfest, there is probably a festival every week-end in the city - absolutely great festivals that are a huge draw.

How does Hartford beat Boston in sports events? They have no sports teams!
The Red Sox, Celtics, and Bruins host over 150 events per year in the city. That doesn't even include the championship parades the city must endure so often .
Boston also hosts the world's most prestigious marathon and largest rowing event.

I know it's based on events. And no, I'm not dense so how about you keep your mouth shut. All I'm saying is that it's the STUPIDEST LIST I'VE EVER HEARD OF and to call Los Angeles the leading bookworm city based on ANYTHING, INCLUDING EVENTS, is also the STUPIDEST THING I'VE EVER HEARD OF.

Celtics and who else has hosted a championship parade in the past year? I know the Pats haven't!

You haven't heard of many stuppid things in your short life, have you? Just wait...when you grow up you'll see a lot more.

You didn't just say the list is stupid...you keep questioning how they came up with X city as the #1 city, and I keep telling you that the list is based on events. You don't seem to understand that fact.

Even if the list is based on just events alone, some of those cites don't belong on there.
