This week's Rod Serling Award for Unfathomably Weird Television goes to cable's Fine Living network for its special Forbes Top 10 Places to Live and Work, which airs at 8 p.m. Sept. 24. It identifies these 10 cities as the best places to live in America:
Phoenix? Where it's 180 degrees 11 months out of the year and everybody wanders among the cactus chanting like so many desert parrots, "But it's a dry heat?" Indianapolis? Where the alluring odor of half-cooked penicillin wafting from the Eli Lilly plant downtown hangs across the city like a poisonous fog? Well, give them points for Albuquerque, anyway, about the only place in America you can get a green-chile burger on every corner.
