Forbes magazine has ranked Cleveland its Most Miserable City, above (or below) Detroit, Chicago, and New York City. The New York City-based magazine formulated a Misery Measure that factors in nine elements that contribute to a bad reputation and day-to-day aggravation.

"Cleveland secured the position thanks to its high unemployment, high taxes, lousy weather, corruption by public officials and crummy sports teams (Cavaliers of the NBA excepted)," Forbes concludes.

Which, of course, is only news if you don't make it to the Cleve often. The Misery Measure does not take into account factors that make Cleveland a swell place to live, like ample cheap parking, the average quality of bar food, inexpensive rent and being able to claim a LeBron James connection.
