Ten Affordable and Livable Housing Markets?

So Yahoo went out and picked out an interesting topic...."Ten Affordable Housing Markets".

After looking at them....I added "Livable" as part of the title.

1. Indianapolis, IN? Crime and gangs....so why move there?

2. Youngstown, OH? Crime and no jobs....so why move there?

3. Detroit, MI? Crime and corruption in government....so why move there?

4. Warren, MI? Crime and corruption in government....so why move there?

5. Grand Rapids, MI? Crime and corruption in government....so why move there?

6. Tolerado, OH? Crime and almost no jobs.....so why move there?

7. Dayton, OH? Crime and limited job opportunities....so why move there?

8. Akron, OH? Crime and a limited job market....so why move there?

9. Syracuse, NY? Massive snow in the winter, no jobs, and a dead city for the most part....so why move there?

10. Wilkes Barre, PN? High tax base, limited job market...so why move there?

Someone spent a fair amount of time surveying the options and offering these ten as very "affordable".....but then you have to ask the second question....how did they come to be affordable? Thats where you start to find various reasons. Why would any fool think of moving to Detroit? Its one of the few places in America that simply doesn't attract anyone. Half the towns in Ohio fit into the same category of having problems with crime, drugs, and no jobs.
