Sin Cities

An interesting article …. “We have unveiled the American city that has fallen the farthest from grace in each of the seven deadly sins. For each sin we stretched our imagination to find a workable proxy–murder rates for wrath, per capita billionaires for avarice–then culled the available data sources to rank the cities.
