Forbes Magazine Ranks St. Louis as No. 7 "Most Miserable" City

Another week, another poll ranking St. Louis as one of the crappiest places to live.

This one from Forbes, which is out with its survey of "America's Most Miserable Cities".

The magazine ranks cities based on a number of factors, including:
  • unemployment
  • taxes (both sales and income)
  • commute times
  • violent crime
  • Superfund pollutions sites
  • convictions of public officials
  • performance of sports teams
Writes Forbes:
St. Louis is a baseball town, but what about those Rams? The NFL team has won only six games out of 48 the past three years, the fewest wins in football.
