I wonder if the OP would have ever thought that this topic would raise such a fuss?

I catch your drift...........

Too; I do not make it my business to post on the Illinois forum about how bad their state is in my opinion. Many of its residents actually like living there so who am I to judge?

Those rankings also take other subjective criteria into consideration like the number of gyms in a particular city or "outdoor activies" etc.
Well, I would rather live in the Upper Midwest and New England and avoid the brown cloud and pollution problems that Phoenix has. Phoenix is a HUGE metro area and it has rather large pollution problems these days. It may not be as bad as the LA Basin but the population growth/sprawl of Phoneix headed for the problems that LA faces minus the Pacific Ocean. This is a personal preference but I can not handle the heat well at all. I do not spend much time outside once the temperature is above 90F with high humidity. I live east of the Rockies, and you have to contend with the heat/humidty combination.
