Stockton deserves to be on the list. More pollution than LA. It's faster to walk home from school than to take the city bus because its always 20 minutes late. The Stockton Unififed produces retards. I'm a B avrage student which means i'm in the top 1 percentile of the best high school in town (which ONLY has a 60 perecnt drop out rate). The shopping sucks. Weather's terrible. I always have the fear of getting shot even in the suburbs. and the list continues. Because of Stockton, The American dream seems easier to aquire in a third world country.

I can't believe Baltimore isn't on there! I have been there several times, and the buildings are run-down, the streets are littered with trash and loiterers, and the bus stations are inhabited by the homeless. Not to mention the high crime rate there.
