DETROIT -- Once upon a time, Detroit was the original capital city of Michigan, and was then given the nickname "The Motor City" for defining the auto industry. Now, according to Forbes, it has become the second most miserable city in the United States (sunny Miami came in first).

Flint ranked third and Warren came in at tenth due to severe budget cuts that includes closing down schools, laying off police officers, and the collapsing housing market. All of that lead to the appointment of an emergency manager in Flint.

During the latter half of 2011, Forbes named Detroit as the most dangerous city in America with 1,111 violent crimes per 100,000 residents, along with 345 murders reported back in 2010. Forbes also followed that up with another list with "America's Worst Cities for Finding a Job," where Detroit was listed fifth with the estimated number of 2.75 unemployed people per job posting.

Several weeks ago, Detroit was named by Men's Health as the second saddest city in America (Another Florida city, St. Petersburg, was ranked first) due to the numbers of suicides reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with unemployment rates stated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

It was also named by Prevention as the most "Artery-Clogging" city in the United States based on information from the CDC, where one-third of the residents are obese, followed by reports of more heart disease diagnoses than any other city nationwide.
