America’s Meanest Cities

This week has seen the release of two more lists of places.  Usually, these “places” are of the “Best” type, as in Best Place to Lve, Best Place to Retire, etc.  For example, Money Magazine’s Annual Best Places to Live 2009 was about America’s best small towns.  But this week also saw release of another list, which was dubbed America’s 10 Meanest Cities.  It was released by the National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty.  It ranked cities based on their criminalization of laws relative to the homeless.  Below are the two lists.  First, guess which list goes with which ranking, and then click on the links about to find out whether you guessed correctly.
