We’re #1*

There’s an old joke that anyone can be the best if you define the category narrowly enough. I was reminded of this when I went to read the Wikipedia page about Centre College to learn about the setting for tonight’s VP debate. There was a photo with this great caption:

Completed in 1820, Old Centre is the oldest continuously operated academic building west of the Alleghenies.

Not the oldest academic building. Not the oldest continuously operated academic building. But the oldest, continuously operated academic building west of the Alleghenies. I guess that counts for something.
