Wow. Four cities in New Mexico are on the Farmers Insurance company list of "Most Secure Places to Live". Pretty cool. They are Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Las Cruces, and Farmington.

You have to think that Russia has a few intercontinentals aimed right for us though, right?

Default also one of the least corrupt!

According to this study, NM is also on the low end of state gov't corruption:

Is there anything New Mexico isn't good at?

Now I'm sure I want to move there!

Makin' money. You'll need to bring your own job or trust fund. Other than that, it's not bad.

They also listed Farmington ahead of where I moved from, Midland, TX! When I first started my research, all I mostly heard about Farmington was how unsafe and crime-ridden it was! I personally liked Farmington. It just didn't work out this round.

They also listed Laredo, TX. They HAVE to be kidding!!!

Add Fence Lake to that List...doubt if Farmers knows where it is though...but USAA does..and good rates...maybe because I am on the fire department (Ass't. Chief),,

Happy trails.

Tim I beleive you according to the study, but I wonder how the study was handled??? I lived in NM for 7 years, one of the reasons we wanted out was just that; govn corruption. This shows us, statistics can prove anything they want...

Of course I believe what I read in USA today about as much as I believe the weather people when they perdict conditons 2 weeks in advance...

My brother lives in San Antonio and laughs when I talk about government corruption here. He says it's nothing compared to San Antonio and Texas. And what about Chicago? It's everywhere. I just got off the SF New Mexican site and people were saying how SF was not safe anymore because a guy murdered his girlfriend yesterday. It is the fourth homicide in the city this year. Wow.
