You just gotta love the South!

The U.S. National Bureau of Economic Research recently released a study called “Unhappiest Cities” which listed the country’s unhappiest and happiest metro areas with a population over one million.

Top 10 unhappiest metropolitan areas with a population greater than 1 million (as of 2010):

1. New York, NY
2. Pittsburgh, PA
3. Louisville, KY
4. Milwaukee, WI
5. Detroit, MI
6. Indianapolis, IN
7. St. Louis, MO
8. Las Vegas, NV
9. Buffalo, NY
10. Philadelphia, PA

Nine out of ten...NOT IN THE SOUTH!

Top 10 happiest metropolitan areas with a population greater than 1 million (as of 2010):

1. Richmond-Petersburg, VA
2. Norfolk-Virginia Beach-Newport News, VA
3. Washington, DC
4. Raleigh-Durham, NC
5. Atlanta, GA
6. Houston, TX
7. Jacksonville, FL
8. Nashville, TN
9. West Palm Beach-Boca Raton, FL
10. Middlesex-Somerset-Hunterdon, NJ

Eight out of ten (and if you know your history, you COULD consider Washington DC almost southern, but given what goes on in DC these days, I wouldn't want to denegrate the South) in the SOUTH!

Some come on down, marry our women, eat out food, breath our air...just don't tell us how you USED to do it in Cleveland! :? 8-)
Baseball is a slow, boring, complex, cerebral game that doesn't lend itself to histrionics. You 'take in' a baseball game, something odd to say about a football or basketball game, with the clock running and the bodies flying.
