  •  Great point. Loved Madison. (3+ / 0-)

    Madison also has the advantage of hosting both the state Capitol and the state university system's flagship campus. It's an urban synergy that Springfield, Ill., where I lived for a year, could desperately use.

    •  Nashville could use it badly too (4+ / 0-)

      Especially given that it's a close second in population to Memphis, it's a real shame that the flagship campus is in the smaller and less vibrant city of Knoxville. In fact, UT does not have a large campus in either Nashville or Memphis!

        and was struck by the crazy number of freeways. Those can't all have been necessary.
