Forget for a moment that nobody around here thinks of  Cambridge, Newton and Framingham as one distinct metropolitan area.

Now feel free to celebrate the fact that  the “Cambridge, Newton and Framingham metropolitan area” has been ranked the most peaceful metropolitan area in the entire United States, according to the Institute for Economics and Peace, a non-profit research organization dedicated to placing communities into odd groupings dedicated to “shifting the world’s focus to peace as a positive, achievable, and tangible measure of human well-being and progress.”

I’m sure this is a nice honor for Newton — but next year we ought to challenge Cambridge and Framingham to a some sort of  paint ball fight so we can hold the “most peaceful” title on our own.

It’s all explained on the AtlanticCities.com  or else you can wait for Hoss to go through the data for Village14 and provide his own in depth analysis.
