Remember several years ago when I posted that Alexandria, Va. was the most romantic city in the U.S. according to amazon.com? Remember how I pointed out that it might be a good thing?

It has been suggested that perhaps the criteria amazon.com uses, “sales data of romance novels, relationship and sex books” indicates a lack of romance. Seeing that we’re lumped in with Cambridge and Ann Arbor supports that statement — what do Cantabs and Wolverines know about amore anyway?!

Anyway, Alexandrians, we are now second to Knoxville, Tenn. home of the Volunteers when it comes to romance (WBIR TV, Knoxville). But what is the old saying about being #2 — we try harder?

No other BeltwayLand community is represented this time — Arlington and Washington D.C. charted previously.
