    Your town isn't know for good readers....

    The study released today (PDF) used data from more than 3 million people in the U.S. between the ages of 18 and 75 who had played several Lumosity brain-training games. These games measured performance across five cognitive areas: memory, processing speed, flexibility, attention, and problem solving. Then the scores were ranked by location.

    Doesn't DC have colleges? Georgetown, Howard, George Washington... I think the politicians might have cost DC a few dumb points.
