Commentary: Fresno, don't believe the Daily Beast's hype

Hello, idiots of Fresno. As you've probably heard by now, our fair city finished dead last on a list ranking the smartest cities in America released this week by The Daily Beast. For those who missed it, The Daily Beast ranked the 55 most populated cities in the country, by their collective brainpower. Fresno and its metro area finished at 55 with a collective IQ of 3. By contrast, smarty-pants winners Raleigh-Durham had a 170 IQ.
