    As a transplanted Yankee, this makes me smile. Many years ago the Houston Post (no longer in business) ran a couple of articles claiming just how much safer Houston was than New York. They were crowing loudly but when you actually read the article, you were more likely to get mugged in NYC but slightly more likely to be killed in Houston so they were making much ado about nothing.

    Ouch! Dallas is 1 in 11.79? I thought crime would be much less common since I moved from there 5 years ago, and stopped commiting all those crimes.
