Now will you believe me when I say business magazines create these stupid and meaningless city rankings only to create controversy and sell magazines and website hits?
Today, Forbes magazine competitor Business Week did its own version of America's "most miserable cities." It's called "America's Unhappiest Cities." Yes, that's right. And do you know what the unhappiest city in America is? Portland, Oregon. Yep, that groovy, green jewel in the Great Northwest is a miserable, er, unhappy place to live. As you can see by the picture, it's a real craphole.Business Week said so. It must be true. Wonder if the mayor will write a letter?
Read the survey here. According to Business Week, Memphis is only the 16th unhappiest city. We're happier than lots of supposedly cooler places, including, yes, Nashville.
Oh happy day.
