    They can rank Eugene however they like, but I can’t wait to leave this place. I have a nice job here, but all the homeless people, the hippies, and the counterculture mentality make it a horrible place to live.

    this is laughable full of homeless, no jobs, rent prices, electricity though eweb, the taxes, the schools are actually barely passing government standards, Eugene doesn’t have a hospital, and the jail never holds people. I have lived many other places that were better than this, and I plan on leaving and not coming back. Who ever did this study got all their information straight from kitty litters (piercy) mouth and were probably paid off by phil knight!
