Jacksonville made the list!!!! Let us raise our voice and rejoice!
#6 for Gluttony
#8 for Sloth
Not really a surprise, is it? We have know for some time that the general populous of Jacksonville is fat and lazy.
But come on Jax. We can do better! If we put a little effort in, maybe we can increase our occurrence on next years list. We should be able to muster up enough Envy over cities with a rich and vibrant downtown. Also with a little functional mass transit system that includes light & commuter rail thrown in should do the trick.
And let's hope with the constant increase in the republication population here. We should make a showing on the list for Avarice. We all know how much you Red blooded Republicans love your money and possessions. And not to mention how much you covet your neighbors and coworkers money and possessions.
So come on Jacksonville. With all the churches we have and all the ramped hypocrisy that entitles us too. We should expect more.
From Forbes site:
"We have unveiled the American city that has fallen the farthest from grace in each of the seven deadly sins ( lust, gluttony, avarice, sloth, wrath, envy and pride). For each sin we stretched our imagination to find a workable proxy--murder rates for wrath, per capita billionaires for avarice--then culled the available data sources to rank the cities. Some of the results were surprising: Salt Lake City as America's Vainest City. Some were not: Detroit as America's Most Murderous."
