Money Magazine has published a list ot the 100 best places to live in the United States. The winner: Middleton, Wis., a suburb of Madison. The editors of Money add this caveat:

But make no mistake: Family life is what Middleton is about. In the summer you'll see parents and kids plying the bike trails of the conservancy, splashing in the town's waterslide-equipped pool or sailing on Lake Mendota. On the downside, winter is tough, and there's not great ethnic diversity.

Er...isn't the lack of diversity that makes it possible for kids to ride safely on bike trails? Even if Money Magazine isn't up on Robert Putnam's latest research, they must have heard of "white flight," a phenomenon usually caused by crime rates.
