St. Louis is getting its a$s handed to it right now by Marquette, Michigan in an online poll going on between showcase cities.

Until the end of the month, a D.C.-based non-profit called National Trust for Historic Preservation is letting folks vote on which of a dozen finalist cities are the most "distinctive," which is defined here as having:
dynamic downtowns, cultural diversity, attractive architecture, cultural landscapes and a strong commitment to historic preservation, sustainability and revitalization.
As things stand, Marquette, Michigan is way out in front.

Here's the rest of our competition: 
  • Bastrop, Texas
  • Cedar Falls, Iowa
  • Chestnut Hills, Pennsylvania
  • the Crooked Road, Virginia
  • Fort Collins, Colorado
  • Huntsville, Alabama
  • Provincetown, Massachusetts
  • Rockland, Maine
  • Simsbury, Connecticut
  • Sitka, Alaska

As in all important elections, you have to register to vote.
