So...time to move?

Northern Ohio is a pretty miserable place to live.

At least according to Forbes.com.

The Web site today released its third annual list of ''America's Most Miserable Cities.''

Cleveland topped the rankings, and four other Ohio cities made the list: Canton, ninth; Akron, 12th; Toledo, 15th; and Youngstown, 18th.

Forbes.com based the rankings on its ''Misery Measure,'' which analyzed unemployment rates, taxes, commute times, violent crime, weather, Superfund pollution sites, public corruption and how pro sports teams have fared over the past two years.
