(Mod: Here is a stunner from from the always entertaining Movoto blog. What makes the following article special for the San Gabriel Valley is it names Pasadena as the "Snobbiest Mid-Sized City In America." Here is how they lay to all down - link.)
These Are The 10 Snobbiest Mid-Sized Cities In America: Do you turn your nose up at anything unrefined? Then you might feel right at home in these supremely snooty cities.
Everyone’s a snob about something. Wine, video games, books, clothing, food…you probably have your own particular thing you’re snobby about. Still, there are some places where people are just a little more stuck up than others, and you might be surprised where those are.
Here at the Movoto Real Estate Blog, we’re kind of snobs about our top 10 lists, and this seemed like a perfect opportunity to indulge our passion. We put on our boat shoes, canceled our reservations at Chez Fancy, and used our new state-of-the-art totally chic computers to make a list of the most persnickety places.
After some math and research, we came up with this refined and high-society list of the snobbiest mid-sized cities in America:
(Mod: How awesome is that? Congrats to Glendale as well for their #7 finish. Here is what Movoto had to say about the big winner.)
(Mod: So how is it so wealthy a community has such an at risk school district? Easy. Snobby Pasadena hates its poor. When they are not denying their poorest citizens a decent public education, their $220,000 a year cops are shooting them. After which they are given a raise by the City Council.)
Pasadena Weekly feature writer Justin Chapman & the LA Press Club Awards
PW scribe Justin Chapman, who used to turn out some ridiculous nonsense for the Sierra Madre Patch (remember them?) back in the day, actually got nominated for something at the LA Press Awards. That happened this weekend, and he didn't win anything. Probably for a good reason.
Here is what Justin was nominated for:
Here is how that article is described on-line. But there is a little bit of a problem. Check this one out first.
Now get a load of this:
Which means, as a 2013 article regurgitated a year later under a different name, it never should have been nominated for an LA Press Club Award this year.
That said, it really is too bad Justin Chapman didn't win. I would have had so much fun calling those folks out.
