Wait, are we supposed to vote for the worse one or the better one?

No doubt. How about a Compton, CA vs Grosse Point, MI thread while we're at it.

For all of the negative things you can say about Los Angeles (traffic, air pollution, housing costs, earthquakes/mudslides), there are also a lot of great things about the city. It has some of the best year round weather in the country. It is a large, cosmopolitan city loaded with great museums, theater, restaurants, etc. It is close to some beautiful beaches and some amazing mountains. Literally, you could go skiing and lay out on the beach in the same day if you wanted. It is not everyone's cup of tea, but there are worse places you could live. Like Detroit. Poor Detroit really does not have a lot to recommend it, other than affordable housing. The traffic, air polllution, winter weather, and crime have always been a problem there, but at least it had a booming industry once upon a time. Now the economy is in the dumps without much hope for improvement.

oops, i just voted los angeles cuz the intro was a little misleading! obviously, detroit is worse, ACROSS THE BOARD. just compare lifestyle statistics in every category and income, job growth, crime, weather, EVERYTHING, how can you even compare los angeles to detroit? that's like comparing jessica alba to rosie o'donnell, why would you do it? one girl is clearly hollywood status while the other belongs in detroit! they are world's apart and evidently, los angeles is far superior in every way! and i don't even like most parts of los angeles!

Subtract TWO points from D-Town and add them to LA. I made the same mistake and voted for LA (thinking I was voting for the better city).

Since the poll isn't clear I'm voting for Delaware.

Detroit is LA without the mountains, ocean, and jobs. They are both spread out with wide avenues and depend a lot on the automobile; although LA has been making inroads into that phenomena. LA has more vibrant nightlife; at least the kind that doesn't involve shooting.
