My Big, Fat, Dangerous City

This was a surprise: Saint Louis was ranked Most Dangerous City in America for 2003. I don’t feel unsafe.

Admittedly, I live in West County, not in Saint Louis proper, but still, you think there’d be a spillover effect.

What’s more, Our Fair City has the worst air pollution in the U.S., and was rated the least healthy place in America for women.

Adding insult to injury, Saint Louis placed fifth on the Men’s Health list of fattest cities. Which might be good news; I can claim my 15-pound gain from one year ago isn’t my fault.

On the other hand, maybe I’m responsible.
