"Forbes ranks Chicago as the fourth most miserable city in the country. It blames violence, high foreclosures, and falling home prices."

3rd most miserable? Rockford. All of Lake County makes 9th. Gary IN makes top 20.

Typical effete Planet Suburbia attitude.

You DO realize that with no Chicago, Streamwood and all the other pseudo-white trash 'burbs out your way would still be cornfields and pig farms...right?

Well, you could live in some traffic-choked generic McNowheresville in The Land Beyond O'Hare, for one thing.

was schaumberg number one followed by naperville..

dupage county is *** upped for the white man.


chicago's northside is a complete over populated mess. it is filled with people who are confused about thier identities and are easily conned...
hell someone had to SELL them the million dollar lean too's they think are mansions...hahahha

the north side, especially the lakefront wards used to be fine up scale family neiborhoods..generations lived there, people knew the extended families names all up and down the blooks.
 then it fell into white flight when they closed the sanitariums cause of budget cuts in the early 60's and 1974 half the south vietnamese than were loaded on the air craft carriers in the gulf of tonkin wound up with addresses on broadway.
in the early 80's idiots from iowa, wisconsin, michigan, ohio, indiana..bought the redeveloped north side.  everyone on the block was flipping the house next door, playing monopoly with the lives and heritage of the old communities and the people who lived there and thiers since the civil war.

now you have left..

hollow communities of shabily rebuilt frame homes with with people who have no equity and no available credit to get out of the grid lock that forces the bicycle as the vehicle of choice on weekends. angry people who cant get out, and are half pshycotic to begin with to seek that area to live in initially.

surpirised its not first on the lsit.
