Forbes.com issued a list of America’s 10 richest cities last week and Anchorage is No. 2. Really.

It’s based on census median household income figures, and Anchorage is second only to San Jose, Calif. Los Angeles and New York don’t make it over the threshold.

Ear doesn’t care about why. It’s just nice to be at the top of a list in some category other than violence and drunkenness. Here are the top five.
