no surprise that New Orleans is top of the worst list. It'll be decades before they've recovered. If they ever do.

New Orleans would have been near the bottom before Katrina anyway. The place is like a third world country now.

detroit..no surprise


Peace to All creatures great and small............................................

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

This does, of course, only include places of a certain size. I'd love to know where Portland, Maine came in - but we're not big enough to count. A couple of cities in Massachussetts, but other than that the rest of New England can go hang. It's like nobody lives up here or something.

:angry:


Make sure you're wearing clean knickers. You never know when you'll be run over by a bus.
