There's no right amount of this garbage to eat.

No wonder half or more of America is obese and sick.
By 2020 it won't matter. I discuss it in the science and technology thread.

What do you consider the far south side? My take on that is south of Pueblo Blvd or south point and I think that is a nice area.

It's not bad, but probably not one of the most desired places in the front range, but that is changing.

Well Joss, that was one heck of an apples to oranges comparison there, even by your standards.

In what universe does a lowly town like Pueblo ever compare to actual cities like Milwaukee, Atlanta, Cleveland, Birmingham, Baltimore, Memphis, Oakland, Stockton, Saint Louis, Detroit, etc.?

I'm just pointing out that while people claim Pueblo is the worst place for crime we are not anywhere close to being in the same category as cities with the worse crime in the nation.

I don't think people are claiming that Pueblo is "The Worst" place for crime. Crime is a problem in Pueblo but putting a list like this in a thread and then trumpeting that Pueblo isn't on the list is laughable, IMO.

Crime is not a problem in Pueblo, at least how some people make it out to be.

No particular reason. I'm just a Mesa Junction girl.

An urbanist. I love that part of town too and if I did not have my families house on the south side, my grandparents had it built in 1959, I would be living in a condo on the Riverwalk.

For sure! My boyfriend is right there in the Blocks and I am so very jealous. I am a little further south, closer to the fairgrounds.
