Chicago = miserable?

I say no, but I'm a pathological optimist and blind champion for the city. Forbes says we're the third most miserable behind Stockton, CA and Memphis.

Lousy weather, long commutes, rising unemployment and the highest sales tax rate in the country are to blame for the Windy City being near the top of our list. High rates of corruption by public officials didn't help either.

My solution for miserable Chicagoans is to get a job, one that's near your home, and get a big coat. It's just that easy, right? Oh, and a bike. Gotta have a bike.

We can thank Bill "pound town" Jones for sharing this story with me.
