Miserable city? Chicago earns new title

Here's a distinction Windy City residents probably don't want to embrace: Chicago ranks sixth as the most miserable city in the United States, according to one magazine's survey.

Forbes magazine just published the results from its new survey, ranking Miami, Fla., as the most miserable because of its high crime rate, long daily commute and foreclosures.

Detroit and Flint, Michigan are second and third, followed by West Palm Beach, Fla., and Sacramento, Calif.

According to Forbes, Chicago takes sixth place because of gridlock traffic, high property taxes, and brutal winters.

But obviously, we can't complain about a brutal winter this year so far!
