    Don’t Go There: America’s Most Miserable Cities (Blame Forbes.com)

    My goodness. Forbes.com has just made a lot of enemies.

    But I suppose you wouldn’t be real happy with them, if you made their list of America’s Most Miserable Cities. I’m sure it’s nothing personal though – they just wanted to come up with a snappy list because they know that’s all anyone on the web wants to read anymore.

    So who’s number one? Stockton, California (“Only 15% of Stockton adults have a college degree”). For what it’s worth, I like Stockton – it’s home to the delightful Asparagus Festival.

    Number two? Memphis, Tennessee (“Incredibly high rate of violent crimes”). C’mon, FedEx is there, how bad could it be?

    Number three? Chicago (“Lousy weather, long commutes, rising unemployment and the highest sales tax rate in the country”). Ouch, but hey – they’re also home to America’s Team.

    See the complete list here.

    Saw this earlier, but forgot to post it:

    David Letterman’s “Top 10 Signs You Have a Bad Travel Agent”.

    My two favorites:

    “Hotel stay is six days and two nights.”

    “Your ‘plane ticket’ is a post-it note with the handwritten message ‘Please admit one to the airplane’.”
