Somewhat surprised to see that my hometown, St. Louis, made the list but that Chicago didn't. I currently live in one of the FAR, FAR western suburbs of St. Louis, and haven't been into the city in years, and have no plans to go there any time soon. No one with a brain in their head goes anywhere near the downtown area after about 6:00 P. M., unless they are going to a professional baseball, football, or hockey game, someplace where there will be dozens and dozens of cops around. Other than that, the city is just too dangerous. A very sad commentary on a once great city.
