OHIO/CINNKY: Cincinnati ranked as...

...#7 most lustful (tied with Columbus)

...#8 most murderous.

...#11 most obese.

(Columbus, btw, also ranks as the #8 greediest. Indianiapolis, Memphis, and Louisville also scored some big ones, btw.)

This is all according to the Forbes article, America's Most Sinful Cities . I mean I have some questions about how the data is collected ("most vain" is ranked based on how many plastic surgeons per 100,000 persons; lustful is based on contraceptive purchasing practices... and why do they suddenly jump to the "Top 20" for gluttony and sloth?), but it's kind of fun.

But, you can also couple Cincinnati's lustful ranking with it being the gonorrhea (400+ cases per 100,000 population) and chlamydia (800+ cases per 100,000 population) queen of the state. . . well, you get the idea. Hey, at least we are the lowest in syphilis and HIV!
