Today's Cretinous U.S. City Rankings

While it's unlikely anyone has ever characterized Travel + Leisure as a high-minded, intellectual publication, it's not exactly US Weekly...until now. As part of its 2011 Favorite American Cities survey, the magazine polled readers about the state of fashion in U.S. cities., and Atlanta came in as the 7th Worst-Dressed. In spite of supposedly basing these rankings on their "survey," the write-up seems to pin Atlanta's style woes entirely on the Real Housewives of Atlanta and their inability to buy taste. It's difficult to decide what's more dispiriting...these advertising-metric-driven click-through lists that have taken over the internet, or the fact that people actually associate the ongoing trainwreck that is the RHOA with Atlanta.
