Kiplinger names Austin 5th smartest place to live in US

In a move certain to drive still more people from SoCal to Austin, Kiplinger's named Austin the 5th smartest place to live in the US. That's not so unbelievable. What IS unbelievable is their second choice, Minneapolis-St. Paul, MINNESOTA. They're ahead of us? We don't turn to a block of ice for 8 months of the year and STILL they're ahead? August isn't THAT bad!

The sun burns bright on Barton Springs as mothers and toddlers wave from the tiny train that tootles around Zilker Park. Down the road, at Chuy's, diners tuck into tacos under the benign gaze of a cardboard Elvis. Two doors over, at the Shady Grove, outdoor tables are already packed with beer-drinking boulevardiers.

They left out, between Chuy's and Shady Grove, Baby Acapulco because the only thing good about it are the drinks.
