I'm not sure having a higher median income necessarily equates to being the "wealthiest." For example, I live between Sacramento and the bay area and these income numbers don't go very far with the cost of living here. But if I was making $71k in Boise or Little Rock, I could be living a much wealthier lifestyle.

Nowhere on this quiz does it say that these are the 15 urban areas with the highest quality of living. I'm fairly comfortable with "more money = wealthier." No claims are being made as to what you can or can't do with that money.

As the Beatles said, money can't buy you love. And as Homer Simpson said, it can't buy you a dinosaur.

Somewhat surprised that nowhere in Texas -- e.g. Austin -- has made it onto this list yet.

Too easy an observation, but sooo little Republicanism here. Sooo tired of winning?

Weird, its almost like most cities aren't known for their republicans because republicans tend to live in rural areas, so you would expect to see the same trend in any list of cities ranked by almost any attribute

Now do a quiz on the poorest, most murderous, crime-infested cities. You'll quickly see how much the GOP is winning.

Yeah, that quiz would include the very Republican cities of Chicago, St Louis, Detroit and Baltimore...
