CNN: Portland #2 "time saving" city

According to a report on CNN, Portland is the #2 "time saving" city in the US (Seattle is #1, San Fran is #3).

Granted, this article is a puff piece, and I seriously doubt much painstaking research went into it--but it's interesting nonetheless.  Portland was praised for its walkable downtown (with lots of good eats) and its transit system, its farmers markets, and widespread wifi.  And apparently, we've got a good supply of doctors in town, as wait times to see one are low.

Now if we could just get that unemployment rate down.....


  1. These ratings things never impressed me.
    "AL'S BLOG RATED #1 BLOG" based on blah blah blah.
    Anybody can be #1 on anything cause its all SUBJECTIVE STUFF!
    Means nothing cause all this stuff depends on who you are and where you are and the factors influencing your life.

  2. Depends on who is doing the rating. Some ratings I would pay attention to, others, not so much.

    This one? Some marketing value, I suppose--but like I said, its a puff piece.


Keep it clean, please
