    Red face Michigan - A wonderfull place to...

    Live?

    Both cities I have spent my life living near... ranked in the top 5 most dangerous cities in the nation.

    YEA!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_be-IeGYq3o If you get out of the city, which is always a good idea as cities are universally areas of deep depression and visions of the horrors of humanity, you will find that Michigan is one of the best states in the whole country.

    The depravity of our cities is only an antonym for the beauty of the parks we are blessed to behold.
    You might be like, I'm confused, what's the attraction?
    But some dudes just love to lose traction.

    Like any club that has grown too large, [motorcycling] has become mired in vacuous debates and split into a thousand splinter factions. Older riders hate squids; cruisers hate sport riders; Harley riders hate everyone, including themselves.

    And I am planning a few more Pure Michigan trips for 2011.

    A palm loop & a long weekend camping trip in Copper Harbor.

    sweet picture..

    get out of that sewer with all the downriver rats gasman.. i live in one of the bigger cities and it is one of the safest in the country..

    i agree though michigan is great outside of the "liberal belt" known as southeastern michigan.. problem, conundrum perhaps, is that all the money is in SE michigan.. so if you want to make a decent living you have to whore around SE michigan.. and i am an easy whore - not cheap but certainly easy.. and well worth the price i get paid..

    I Feel Your Pain!

    Buffalo, NY
    Population: 270,007
    Worst Feature: The Weather
    Best Feature: (Except for Vegetarians) The Home of Buffalo Wings


    What would you get if you take a corrupt city government, mix it up with urban decay, a high crime rate, and brutally, cold snowy winters – you’d get one of the worst cities in the world to live. You’d also get Buffalo New York.
    Like many other cities suffering form urban blight and decay on this list, years of high unemployment have taken their toll on Buffalo. Thousands have fled leaving large parts of the town unoccupied and boarded up.
    There are few remaining job opportunities for those that remain and the typical alcoholism, drug abuse and crime that usually follow are big problems in Buffalo.
    Add to that its damn cold, if not for the major contribution to popular culture – Buffalo Wings, Buffalo New York would have very little going for it.
    I prefer peace. But if trouble must come, let it come in my time, so that my children can live in peace.
