A website calling itself RoadSnacks has a list of the 10 worst places to live in Tennessee, a tally which is based on several variables which they explain. Of the bottom 10, six of the cities are in West Tennessee. Number 2 on the list is Humboldt, where I lived for 3-1/2 years back in the 1980’s and graduated from high school. I never thought of Humboldt as a bad place to live. But maybe it’s gone downhill since I left. At any rate, all ten selections are small towns. There are no big cities. (It’s just an observation I am making.) I’ve long contended that there are no bad places to live in Tennessee. Even if you’re one foot away from our border with Kentucky or Alabama, you’re still in the Volunteer State, so you’re on hallowed ground. But I suppose some places are better than others, even in Tennessee.
