We're Number 1!

So it finally happened, and Stockton has claimed a national title.  Forbes.com named Stockton its most miserable city to live in!

Number 1 baby!

Number one was determined on a number of factors, such as violent crime rate, personal income tax, and commute time (?).    

Being ground zero for home foreclosures, still topping the list on violent crime, and having what could be a 13% unemployment rate hurts for sure.

Detroit, Chicago, Modesto, you three can kiss my jew backside.  Although on a hilarious note, cities with pro-sports teams that suck (Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills) also made our list.  Do the Cougars count for us? 

I find it amazing Ann Johnston is still trying to shill for volunteering in a national article ripping our fair city.  Maybe some volunteers can post up outside this place I know.  

All in all, I still find this a bit much.  The only place I know that gets crazy with traffic is Delta at 11 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  But at least people try.

We all need to pat ourselves on the back.  Claiming a title is something that can be 86 years in the making.  We just added another one to our trophy case.
