I recently found on a VHS a clip of the Today show from the summer of 1988 that discussed the top ten cities in America to live and would like to share this to you guys just for a historical perspective. Note that all of the cities/regions are in high-tax areas.

That just proves the media's political bias that they often deny.

I believe that the list came from Money magazine. Here are the most recent lists from Money magazine: Best Places to Live 2014 - TIME

Do you think Money is anti-Tax?

It is kind of weird these tv shows don't just come up with their own list. It is all opinion. Doesn't seem much fun to repeat somebody elses opinion

Whenever I see these lists, I always think,"The best places for whom?" Certainly not for me. None of them have any attraction for me. I like reading about different locations but that doesn't mean I want to live in those places.

Perhaps not, but like so many of these lists, the criteria changes and is something people should consider when reading them.

Danbury is still a great place to live. The cost of living has significantly increased in Connecticut in the past 20 years and unfortunately many businesses and people have left the state.
