The List: The Most Walkable Cities in America

Prevention magazine published a list of the Most Walkable Cities in America. Factors contributing to the ranking were air quality, the percentage of people who walk to work, access to parks, number of athletic shoes sold, and weather.

Here's the list:
  1. Madison, Wisconsin
  2. Austin, Texas
  3. San Francisco, California
  4. Charlotte, North Carolina
  5. Seattle, Washington
  6. Henderson, Nevada
  7. San Diego, California
  8. San Jose, California
  9. Chandler, Arizona
  10. Virginia Beach, Virginia
New York is one of my favorite places, and I'm surprised it didn't make the list. You have an amazing city, and Central Park is a walker's paradise.

I'm surprised that none of the Boardwalk Beach towns made the list. Atlantic City may be the only town big enough for their lists, and I can understand why that didn't make the top 10. Still, some of the other little Atlantic Beach towns deserved consideration.

Is your city walkable? It's probably a strange question coming from a guy in a wheelchair, but let's hear your comments.

After Christmas wrapping paper goes on sale, and so does Rapping paper, apparently.

Special offers are everywhere! You can get two drinks for the price of two! Don't worry, after four you won't notice how much you're spending anyhow.

Sometimes no caption is necessary.

But I'm so hot.  I'm sure everyone inside doesn't mind looking at me.

I didn't even bother going inside.  Clearly I would violate several of these store rules.

This was seen on a Dairy Queen drive through.  I always keep my secret ice cream money in my underwear.

How United Airlines Should Have Handled the Situation

United Airlines is under fire for a viral video that shows them removing a passenger forcibly from an airplane bound for Louisville Kentucky.
Here are the bullets:

The plane was already loaded and full.The airline needed to fly four employees to Louisville Kentucky on the plane. The employees needed to go to prevent another plane from departing late.The airline offered $800 in compensation to the first four people who would volunteer to give up their seats. No one took the offer.The airline went to a lottery, drawing for people at random. These four people were asked to leave the plane, and they would receive the compensation.One of the passengers refused to leave. It's unclear how things escalated, however he was removed by security officers. Reports are conflicting about whether the officers were police officers, TSA workers, or airline staff.The gentleman was literally physically dragged down the aisle receiving while screaming in protest and physically abused in the process.Ap…
