Money Magazine has Sherwood, Oregon, in its Top 20 Best Places to Live. Sherwood is a bedroom community about ten miles outside Portland.

Oh, Money has the numbers that show how they put Sherwood on their list.
Speaking of numbers, I heard a good one recently, it goes something like this: the average person in Sherwood, Oregon, has one testicle.
