    agreed. I can see visiting DC, Chicago, Memphis, etc.

    unless I was testing body armor or some new anti riot weapon, I can not see any reason to go to detroit

    years ago there was a sports event in cobo hall that I wanted to attend. Just before I left, my late father handed me a box and said "take this" If you have to use it, I will have an attorney there in a heartbeat.

    it was his 45. some guys thought my car was something they wanted. I said-you wanna get shot? I suspect they knew I meant it They bugged off. worked out best for everyone.

    Chicago is a great city. Like any city there are some pretty rough areas, but there is plenty of the city that perfectly safe and awesome. We have a great and diverse restaurant scene. Plenty of local theater and comedy. If your into architecture, Chicago has tons to see. The view from the lakefront is really breath taking. The Chicago Art Institute is one of the finest art museums you'll see. The local sports teams are passionately followed, even if they're not always successful. If you like to go out and have a good time, I can't think of a better neighborhood to party in that Wrigleyville, especially if you pick a night when the Cubs win.

    Yes, our local politicians are horrible. But that's true for the state as a whole. We got three living ex-governors who are convicted felons. And I can't tell you how many city officials and suburban officials have been found guilty of corruption - or are obviously corrupt but somehow still on the job. But still doesn't change the fact that Chicago is a world class city.
    Slipping into madness is good for the sake of comparison - Unknown.

    I would say Detroit, but DC is responsible for our 17 trillion debt, along with countless other problems facing our nation today. Detroit might be one of the worst cities to live in, but when **** hits the fan in Washington, we all feel the splatter.

    I agree, but Camden is right across the river from Philly, so that is not the reason.. Camden never recovered from the riots back in the 60s and went from bad to worst in crime, living conditions

    Pretty sure the poll is talking violent crime, not what is going on in our government.

    All it said was worst. If it was just a measure of violent crime, the poll would be unnecessary.

    My point was that DC has nationwide collateral damage, unlike any of the other cities.

    Washington, DC has more prostitution and immorality, and has adversely affected my life more than any other.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
