My New Favorite Expression

The other day, I heard a coworker describe Madison as, "65 square miles surrounded by reality."

I realize this is probably an old joke, and originally had a different target, but I had never heard it before and found it tremendously funny.

Now the only time I have visited Madison we toured the Capitol building and ate lunch at Ella's Deli and had a great time. So I will pass on disparaging the, shall we say, more 'out-there', city to my south.

But really, the '65 square miles surrounded by reality' structure has a lot of possibility for variation.

Does anyone know how many square feet are in AIG headquarters?
