We're number 2

I bet this pisses off liberal haters in the Wisconsin Legislature (Vos, Nass, etc.)

Publication ranks Madison as 2nd-best-run city in U.S.We were beaten out by Plano, Texas.

From the actual study it appears we are actually number three, behind Virginia Beach and Irvine, CA. Plano is number 10.

I wonder where Dean Mosiman got his info?

3. Madison, Wis.
> Violent crime per 1,000 people: 3.92 (21st lowest)
> Poverty rate: 18.7% (40th lowest)
> Adult population graduated from high school: 95.1% (3rd highest)
> Credit rating: Aaa (stable outlook)
> Population: 233,777

Madison, the other capital city on our list, was incorporated in the mid 1800s, and exists today as one of the most well-run cities in the Midwest. Madison is not a particularly wealthy city, with a median household income of just over $50,000. Nevertheless, the capital has a perfect Aaa (stable) credit rating, as well as extremely low unemployment and home vacancy rates. According to Madison city administrative analyst Tim Fruit, “Over the past few years, we have really made a significant effort toward more carefully planning our six-year capital improvement program. In the past, the out years were not well scrutinized. Now, we try to analyze and balance the out years much more carefully.”


What's an out year?

If Madison was number 2, it is poop. If it is actually number 3 does this mean it is pee and poop?
