Bogus list, DC should be #1, not #54. Do they realize the complete nutters we have running this country?

Don’t get an argument from me about San Fran, DC aside maybe San Fran ought to be in first place.

Daaamn, my first thought was Cincinnati (Lived There) and I thought, no way, SF (never been) is number one.
I don't bet on horses either.

So, drinking proves you have mental problems, but smoking crack doesn’t? The Daily Beast is insane.

How did Michigan’s towns not fair worse, with 25% unemployment?

It's a depressing city because of the crime, so there's no nite life.
At least there wasn't for two years after the Over the Rhine riots.
There really isn't much to do there.

The Black gangs destroyed almost everything then complained when all the businesses left
and there were no jobs. Funny how that works.

Madison,Wisconsin
should be on the list. It’s the Berkeley of the Midwest.

We just had those teacher student strikes here in CA.
The teachers want more money the students want cheaper fees and they all marched together.
Funny how that works.:)

A glass of wine at dinner equals heavy drinker?

I think I would take umbrage at that.

I live in Madison. It has to be in its own special category of crazy. The city govt wanted to ban drive-thrus because of global warming (in MADISON!).

I’m 20 miles east of Madison. Went to the UW-Madison. Lived within 30 miles of it all my life.

Hey, at least there’s great shopping there!(yes I’m a girl).

I avert my eyes from the bumper stickers on the clown cars I see while driving.

I dream of moving far far away from Madison, so far that I never hear of the liberal utopia again.

Texas? Wyoming? I don’t know. Retiring in a conservative state would be nice.

It will be sweet to see what the November elections do to the political landscape. Doyle is the worst. Feingold! Don’t get me started on that POS.

At least we have a wonderful selection of cheeses!

; )

I do have fond memories of my time at the UW. That was a really fun place to go to school. My husband gets season tickets to Badger Basketball every year and I like to go to a game every season. They have taken down “our” dorm now, Ogg Hall. I was sorry to see it go. It was fun to walk by it on the way to the Kohl Center. Good old Ogg. Good times. It stunk like an old beer, but it was home for 3 years for me.
