Thanks a lot RegalTDP for the follow-up post.  Your photo of the banner along with your exhibit photos and review were great.

I was watching the Travel Channel last night, and their Museum Secrets (or some similar name) show featured a very nice shot of the skyline along the river before zooming in on the Ford museum.   The story was about the gun used by Squaeky Fromme in her failed assassination attempt.

"Bragging Rights: See where Michigan cities rank on best-of lists."

 

It's typical Mlive clickbait for sure, but I wasn't sure if it's meant be taken seriously or not.  It reads like a self-parody of GR's obsession with these dumb lists.

 -- Great picture, guys!  What an inspiring photo that perfectly encapsulates GR's bullish labor market.  YOU could be driving that school bus!

 -- Yep, sounds about right.

I saw that article too and thought it was funny.

 

The most conservative and most liberal cities in America came out, and Grand Rapids!!!! Didn't make the list (either).

The list was for cities with population over 250,000.  I guess we will have to wait for the list of cities under 250,000.

Since it's for cities and not metro areas, the City of GR wouldn't make top ten on those lists either.  Maybe Holland might.

Holland's city population is only 33,000.

 

It's interesting that they would only cover "cities" in this study and not MSA's, when most cities in the U.S. are only a fraction of their metro areas nowadays. Grand Rapids is only about 1/4 of its metro.

 

But anyway, I was joking. :)

Yeah, only covering cities and not MSAs makes the whole exercise far less interesting of an endeavor.  #1 Mesa is Phoenix's largest suburb, but it's only about 11% of its own MSA.  So who cares, really...?

 

But anyways, yeah, I know you were joking.  :thumbsup:
