Washington is dumber than Seattle, San Francisco and even Raleigh, according to a shocking new study by the U.S. Census Bureau (which is in Washington). But it's not all bad news:
Seattle also has more than its share of residents with advanced degrees: 20.5 percent. Only Washington, D.C., has more holders of advanced degrees. Many there work for the federal government, as well as for the think tanks and other nongovernmental organizations that form the heart of capital's working culture.Notice they left out "lobbyists."
