    Atlanta Named Worst City for Sleeping

    Headline and Article from the AP Wire:
    http://www.newsday.com/news/nationwo...orld-headlines

    Highlights:
    Nashville, Houston, New York and St. Louis followed Atlanta at the top of the list of worst places to snooze.

    The best cities for sleep were in California -- Anaheim and Los Angeles were No. 1 and No. 2. Raleigh-Durham, N.C., Minneapolis and Chicago rounded out the best list.

    Sanofi-Aventis, a drug company that makes a sleeping pill, funded this latest report.

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I checked the link and it didn't really indicate how they arrived at these results. Did I miss something?

    In any event, I've never needed anything to help me sleep and almost nothing wakes me up at night. My wife and kids are usually also sound sleepers (my son can sleep through the heaviest thunder storms going: My daughter usually wakes up and crawls into our bed, whereupon she 1) falls immediately asleep and 2) puts her bent knee into the small of my back.
