Best Places to Live

Any list can be controversial and this one is no exception.

Are these really the best places to live in the world?

What was it? 4 of the top ten were in Switzerland?
You've got to be kidding.
I'll go with Harry Lime's lines as reagrds Switzerland: "Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."

I don't think living inside a cuckoo clock can be that interesting. Safe, for sure. But interesting??????

Ha! Definitely Obama wards.


Well, it was heavy on the Swiss. Many of the choices struck me as boring. A few weeks in any of them and you'd be ready to head for southern Italy. BTW: Anyone who quotes from The Third Man gets extra credit. Great film!
