Most Affordable Cities in America

MSN and Forbes have an article on the most affordable cities in the United States. Not surprisingly cities in the eastern half of the commonly accepted Midwest region dominate. Indianapolis, Cleveland, Detroit, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati are the leaders of the pack. These places are urban centers yet (with the exception of Detroit) usually do a good job of staying out of the news.

On a side note: Some of the above have baseball teams which would fit under reader Deaner's definition of a blue-collar team. Does an blue-collar, somewhat smaller city mindset help create a culture with many comforts of a city while decreasing crime, taxes, and other burdens?
