We're #1!

The Shity of Milwaukee has *hic* oversum all optickles and kapsured, ahh crapturd, ohhh, taken it - the drinkyest *hurl* shity in the USa.
Milwaukee Is the Drunkest City in the Nation
Residents of Milwaukee get the most smashed.

The Daily Beast developed a drunkenness matrix to rate cities on how intoxicated their citizens are. The metric is based on average number of drinks per person per month, percentage of adults who are heavy drinkers, percentage of adults who are binge drinkers and deaths per 100,000 residents from liver cancer. Following Milwaukee, a city associated with beer production, were Fargo, N.D.; San Francisco; Austin; and Reno, Nev.

Considering only average drinks per person, per month, Milwaukee doesn't rate particularly high, trailing Austin; Boston (eighth overall); and Anchorage, Alaska (ninth), among other cities.

However, that could just prove the point that the folks in Milwaukee aren't sipping a glass of wine a day to keep their heart strong -- they're just out there on Friday nights drinking like there's no tomorrow

C'mon, Siggie... Can you really blame them?

It's the night sweats and scars Nickie. After 40 years (the last 20free of child support payments) you'd think I'd be over it.

I always thought it was Gallup, NM. It is located on the southern boundary of the Navajo Reservation. Ever been in a reservation town on treaty check day?

Orp - I worked in a PD with an Indian reservation just outside the city's border. On Friday nights it was a race between the drunken residents of the Res and the police to make it through the city before we caught them. Many times they refused to stop, which made it very entertaining for us.

The best high speed chase I ever had was like one of these. I was out of the academy less than a week. I was driving and my FTO was shooting after the drunk rammed four police cars. One of these days perhaps I'll post about it.

PS - never go head to head with a 1963 Chevy Impala with a POS 1973 Ford Crown Vic. Sirens and light bars don't mean squat.
