(continuing-oops) that what we receive as the "ignorant public" are only what others wish for us to swallow whole without chewing or thought. Yipes. Give us the useful "real" information and keep the rest where it belongs. There are more of us out here in the land of the ex and remaining middle class who finally have our blinders removed and can see where all this constant "poor" misinformation leads. Surprised Washington DC was not listed as #1.The day will soon arrive when those in positions of power, and hopefully that will include the media chieftains and talking heads, are held to account for their actions. Keep smiling and remember to vote with your mind and not your ****!

These stats were clearly made up by the same internal ad genius who is creating Obama spots on TV. Important factors such as: crime rate (New Orleans); Educational system (Chicago) and on and on make it clear that like so many things we see and read these days t

I see slide pictures of mysteryville only. Where are these places? I have looked and looked and looked, and apparently they forgot to tell the viewer where these places (pictured) are. But it is not as bad as the missed call on Monday night. Nothing's that bad. So this level of incompetence must be understood as not as severe as we've seen this week.

Somtimes I really question where these people get all their stats.   New Orleans, no mention of crime stats, no mention of insurance on homes.............cost of living should be prohibitive with the utility bills for a/c alone.    wish they would give us some real stats.

If you live out side of the city in the suburbs, it is a good place for retirees.  The city has a lot to offer

New Orleans for retirees???? Don't think so Maurice. Insurance rates will kill a retirees pension and its hot and humid like you would not believe.

I couldn't find the list because of the advertising

Some excellent cities are on this list, with perhaps one notable exception. New Orleans for retirees? That doesn't make a lot of sense unless those involved have spent some time in the city and surrounding area. That is a BIG change for how most people live. Interesting how California is shut out here - not disagreeing but just a bit surprised. I guess places like Sunnyvale and Torrance are not what they once were!

Des Moines is a great city!  I lived there for 30 years.  It is even getting better for young adults.  There is virtually no crime and plenty to do plus it is close to Minneapolis and Kansas City.  It does get very cold in the winter but the seasons are quite nice.
