    unfortunately the article doesn't provide a link to the survey - I was hoping to see the list. I'm too lazy to bother looking it up on the net...

    I tried looking it up and I don't think it's available online yet - I kept ending up with the 2002 version.

    Good to see Auckland, New Zealand, up there at 5th equal! ButI think Wellington is much nicer to live in than Auckland.

    that was a cool article. i couldnt help but notice that DC was #50 on the list and yet considered the most dangerous city in north america......weird.
