SONS OF LIBERTY, NOT LABILITY:

Boston #1! (for meanest population) (Gareth Cook, July 17, 2011, Boston Globe).

Two psychologists conducted a national survey, asking Americans questions designed to measure 24 “character strengths.’’ They grouped some of these strengths, like gratitude and valuing emotional connections, as “strengths of the heart’’ - a fancy way of saying kindness. And then, for each of the nation’s 50 largest cities, they calculated an average score.

The conclusion: Boston came in at number 50. [...]

Boston’s independent streak and Yankee reticence attract the like minded, folks who are probably less inclined toward open-ended emotional connections.


"open-ended emotional connections"? Grow a pair.
