Best place to live *

Think twice before you spark one here in the best place to live in America – at least if you’re black. Although its headline doesn’t say it, the Wisconsin State Journal reports that “African-Americans in Madison were arrested or cited for marijuana offenses at about 12 times the rate of whites.” Gosh, that’s about the same rate as every other city in the country.

Madison could well be the best place to live in Wisconsin if you’re a black child, but that’s a low bar to clear. Let’s not dislocate our shoulders by patting ourselves on the back.
