To follow up the last post, Memphis has been ranked the third most dangerous of 330 metropolitan areas, following Detroit and New Orleans. In an interesting footnote, as a city, Memphis ranks 16th among 369 cities. It’s as a metro area that it really moves up the list. By the way, the Jackson, TN, metro is ranked as the 18th most dangerous metro area. So much for rural bliss.
