Re: [umass76] Lists that actually matter
I'm skeptical that "Clench" and "Hopper" represent any large demographic here.
Excellent work "Clench" and "Hopper." Back into the hive mind. There will be a little extra honey in your stalls' oat bins for tonight.
I've come up with my own ranking system that factors in decent football games in the locality divided by the availability of a decent deli and the preponderance of good bourbon, which sets Michigan firmly atop the rotation. Any takers? [For those sad souls in Manhattan: Yes, the Carnegie is good. No, it's not as good as Zingerman's. Yes, really. As a matter of fact, I have lived in both places. Thanks for asking!]
Cheerleaders who can write magic realism get quadruple points. I can also be bribed with cash (or single-barrel bourbon or a world-shaking reuben like those at Zingerman's, or a combination of the two -- pardon me, semi-coma as I ponder the possibilities, with or without the cheerleader).
All that said, I'm applying to the program in my backyard, because I've spent 20 years moving and now I'm done. No ranking neccessary--it's this one or a low-residency. Voila!
