Reason‘s August/September issue isn’t online yet, but in the print edition it ranks nanny cities in the United States. The rankings are based on city ordinances controlling sex, tobacco, alcohol, guns, traffic enforcement, drugs, gambling and food/other.
Worst (in descending order): San Francisco, New York, LA, Seattle, Oakland, San Jose, San Diego, Chicago
Best: Miami, Denver, Milwaukee, Jacksonville, Atlanta, Detroit
Middling: Louisville, Fort Worth, San Antonio, Austin, Dallas, Indianapolis, Houston, El Paso
The fertile minds on our City Council will surely not let this go unchallenged. There are so many little aspects of our citizens’ lives left to be tampered with.
