    I'd say that's pretty close.

    Let's see. One town: Harvard. MIT. UMass. Boston College. Brandeis. Tufts. Northeastern.

    And arts. And music.

    Republicans are politely given a map and a one-way ticket out of town.

    Unless you prefer Eureka? But that's been cancelled so nevermind.

      and if it were serious and visionary rather than a bunch of semi-comedic Acme gadget humor.  Basically a much more flexible version of Tokyo.

      Like I say, I don't see Boston or those other college towns as being what I'm talking about.  They have a culture of education, but it's not formalized - it's not any kind of official basis for their existence.  The colleges don't run the cities.
