I disagree completely!! I live in one of the so called 'Unhappiest Cities' and I know a lot of happy people!

Yeah, people basting in 100-degree temps with 100% humidity in LA are really happy.

pointless. No actual information about how subjective data was collected or how the cities were rated. A remarkably skeletal article. Plus, Detroit as #7 most unhappy? I figured that city would be a shoe-in for first place. And New York? Come on. I don't buy that for a second.

Pretty slack, guys.

Anybody notice that none of the cities mentioned (except Corpus Christie) are in the Western half of the US? And why are the top 5 "happiest cities" all in Louisiana? I got a funny feeling the author grew up in New Orleans...

Seems like a pretty biased article to me!
