I wasn't born in the Crossroads, but I got here as fast as I could.

It sounds over the top, but I really love our Crossroads community. I'm not oblivious to the fact that the Victoria, where I live has a few "quirks," but I've lived long enough on this planet to note that every city, big or small, has their "things."

It's with that in mind that when a recent article came out highlighting rude and polite cities in the US, The Rudest Cities in America, followed by their survey of the most polite cities, I was interested immediately in reading whether Victoria or any city in the Crossroads made either of these two lists.

And I can't wait to hear your thought on the matter!

According to the online article titled, "Study: The Rudest Cities in America" which surveyed over 1,500 residents in the 30 largest metropolitan areas in the U.S. Reply asked the 'rudeness level' of their city.  Houston, Texas ranked # 10 on their list.

Further in the article you can read that those surveyed listed FIVE polite cities in Texas alone, in fact, Austin Texas ranked #1 as the MOST POLITE CITY IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

But none of the cities in the Crossroads made either of those lists, and it got me to thinking, which list do you think we should have made and why?
