Travel & Lesion

By now I'm sure you've heard that the unfortunate travel industry ad-oriented rag Travel & Leisure has been spouting venom to the effect that Philadelphia has the country's least attractive, least "worldly" , least "active" people, and that the city is both pedestrian-unfriendly and generally unfriendly. You can read the highly unscientific poll results here.

What little the turds over at T&L have published in the way of methodology suggests that in many (if not most) cases, people were being asked to rate cities they've never visited, sure to be lost in the retelling via the wire services.

With this in mind, I have posted my own poll for the very first time, at right. I want to know which editorial staff of four national magazines the readers of this blog think are most likely to rape their own children for cheap publicity for their publication. I know that in many cases you've never met the editorial staff of each, but apparently we're in an age when this no longer matters.
It's OK to shit on an international reputation of a city if it gets your name in the paper. Results will be shared on the blog and with the editors of T&L at a later date.

I take T & L as seriously as I would an airplane magazine like Southwest Today.

Of course the airplane magazines have your menu, the in-flight audio guide and those handy diagrams of airport terminals...
