EVIDENCE THAT NORTHEASTERN PROFESSOR JACK LEVIN DOESN’T KNOW WHAT HE’S TALKING ABOUT: Reader John Galvin sends these data on education:

Boston: High school or higher: 78.9%
Huntsville: High school or higher: 85.7%

Boston: Bachelor’s degree or higher: 35.6%
Huntsville: Bachelor’s degree or higher: 36.1%

Boston: Graduate or professional degree: 15.3%
Huntsville: Graduate or professional degree: 12.7%

So Huntsville AL beats Boston in 2 out of 3 categories and isn’t far behind Boston in the third, especially when you consider all the college teachers, lawyers and doctors in Boston.

Less casual bigotry in Huntsville, too . . . .

UPDATE: I see that Levin has apologized, though not publicly.
