Palouse Cities Among USA Smartest

Ithaca, N.Y. is a relatively small college town, but one thing that might make up for its size is its brain power. That’s because Ithaca tops a new list from Lumosity that ranks U.S. cities by their raw cognitive performance. ... Many of the cities and towns on the list, not surprisingly, are prominent “college towns.” Ithaca, N.Y., the top of the list, is home to both Cornell University and Ithaca College. State College, Penn. number two, is home to Penn State. Lafeyette, Ind., number three, is home to Purdue University/Sean Ludwig, VB Offbeat. More here.

DFO: Interestingly, Pullman, Wash., ranks No. 10 and Moscow, Idaho, ranks No. 29 on the Lumosity list.

Question: How would you rate your North Idaho city for smarts (on a scale of 1 to 10)?
