Still thinking about this previous post, excerpt from the article on Buffalo's decline.
1. Isn't it unfair to compare Buffalo's college-degree-holder percentage with...Manhattan's (surely the highest in the country)? Better to compare it to the national average?
2. "Buffalo wasn't a university town like Boston"—no, but is any town a university town like Boston?
3. The "Scandinavian passion" strikes me as weird and unproveable?
