20 ‘Most Miserable Cities’ are all Liberal


Forbes just published its 20 Most Miserable Cities List for 2013. The magazine left off several obviously more “worthy” contenders, perhaps because its decisions to include and exclude certain criteria were, to say the least, more than a little odd.

The magazine’s exclusion of “corruption” is a joke. Surely the researchers at Forbes can determine the degree of corruption in America’s various cities without copping out that the only available data is “regional.” Another justification for why both Baltimore and New Orleans should be on the list is that each city’s previous mayor was charged with crimes. Baltimore’s Sheila Dixon was convicted in 2009; if there has been a major reduction of corruption there, I haven’t heard about it. Former Mayor Ray Nagin of New Orleans is currently at the arraignment stage on bribery charges which seem all but certain to end in convictions.
