Here's one we never saw coming.  According to a new study based statistics from the US Census Bureau and the FBI, Miles City is the "happiest" city in Montana.  Really?  Have they ever bothered to visit Miles City?  With all due respect to the fine people who live there, it wouldn't be our first choice.

The study weighed several factors into their rankings, including crime rate, commute times, household income, property values, divorce rates and proximity to restaurants and entertainment.  And somehow they concluded that Miles City residents have a better standard of living than anywhere else in Montana.
