Sin City Isn’t the Most Sinful City

Clipart

“What happens in St. Louis stays in St. Louis.”  It just doesn’t have the same ring as “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.”  The blog Movoto has made a list of the “10 Most Sinful Cities in America” and Vegas isn’t number one.

The blog used the Seven Deadly Sins, wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy and gluttony.  Still sounds like Vegas to me.  They translated those sins into criteria that makes sense for modern city living.

Violent crime per year per 1,000 residents = wrath

Percentage of disposable income given to charity each year = greed

Percentage of physically inactive residents = sloth

Cosmetic surgeons per capita = pride

Strip clubs per capita = lust

Theft per year per 1,000 residnets = envy

Percentage of obese residents = gluttony

How did the results stack up?  Here’s the full list of Sinful Cities.

1. St. Louis, MO
2. Orlando, FL
3. Minneapolis, MN
4. Pittsburgh, PA
5. Milwaukee, WI
6. Cincinnati, OH
7. Miami, FL
8. Buffalo, NY
9. Detroit, MI
10. Las Vegas, NV

Even though Las Vegas ranked first in strip clubs, one club for every 2,808 residents, they fell short in the rest of the sins.  Who needs to go to Vegas when Minneapolis (#3 on the list) is only a short 3 1/2 hours away?
