Columbia's Ranking In Most Sinful Cities List

WalletHub has come out with their list of the Most Sinful Cities in the U.S., judging 180 cities across 39 indicators of evil deeds, including such things as excessive drinking, adult entertainment establishments, violent crimes per capita, share of adult smokers and coffee drinkers, bullying rate and more. 

Not surprisingly, Las Vegas does indeed top the list again this year. I mean, they don’t call it Sin City for nothing. Vegas earns a 60.80 out of 100, ranking in the top five for “Laziness,” and “Vanity” and the top ten for “Greed” and “Lust.”
