    French Fries and Gravy...

    Yep, the home of FF w/gravy and the Fried Seafood Platter. I figured we were in the running. Have you ever seen how many liquor stores and fried chicken carry outs there are in the city. (not downtown, but in the neighborhoods). What a crock!!

    that ranking is a joke. even with the influx of young yuppies into the city, i wouldn't buy baltimore as being a healthy city. I do live in the city, but I don't have 2 kids and a dog to qualify as a yuppy...but then again, I have a dog but no kids...maybe I am a yuppy, ahh who cares.

    "I don't know that running from the police counts as exercise?"

    A funny quote from one of the commenters in the article. There are several from Baltimore and none of them seemed to agree with the survey. The only thing I will agree with in the article is the A- given for the "Parks/Open Space" category. They based it on the number of parks and total acreage per 10k residents. We do seem to have a lot of park space for the 1 million-ish residents (city and county I am assuming).
