From time to time, I'll run across these lists that, I have to admit, I find very interesting. The topics are of a wide variety. It's always something like "The 10 (fill in the blank)-est Cities in America." Also, from time to time, the subjects are kind of a downer. Like this one--"The 10 Saddest Cities in America." And what do you know? Three of them are within a day's driving distance, and one is in our own backyard.
