After perching near the top of Money magazine's Best Places To Live list for two years straight, Naperville was holding its collective breath this time, wondering if this was the year we'd make it to No. 1. Then something strange happened.
Money decided to rank small towns, tiny hamlets the size of Lisle, which, incidentally did very well, placing 20th on the list. Woodridge is on there, too. Maybe the glow of Naperville's two years in the limelight rubbed off on its smaller neighbors.
So, what do you say, Naperville? Are you disappointed there was no chance to make the list this year? What is it with Naperville's fascination with lists, anyway? Or is not making the list this time no big deal?
