Gotta Watch: Location, location, location

Money Magazine has released its 2011 list of America's 100 best places to live. In today's Gotta Watch, we're checking the map and looking at a few other cities you may - or may not - want to consider.

Buford, Wyoming's party of one – Whether it's about winning debates at town meetings, the length of his commute or how long it would take to meet the entire population, Don Sammons knows all the jokes. And he should. He's the sole resident of Wyoming's oldest town.

Lynwood, Washington's men in tights –  If safety is at the top of your list, you may want to consider Lynwood, Washington. The city's police force gets a little extra help from a merry band of crime fighters.

Jacksonville, Florida's pet peeve - If you want a city that supports all forms of creative expression, even when it involves the family pet, you may want to drive on past Jacksonville, Florida. Just ask this woman, who was busted for painting her pooch.

    I hope the girl will show the ticket with the name of the law enforcer, so that we all know who he is, maybe his agenda too

    Been there – late 90s... population 2 at the time. My wife and son had to use the restroom so badly and had been NO place for miles. We were glad to arrive at "Buford" and see the store. When we walked in, my wife asked where restrooms were. They were pointed out, BUT you had to be a customer. She was furious, but I bought a "twid" pen with Buford,WY on it (shown on the vi deo)...and still have it. As we were driving off, we saw the owner's parking spot, and it had a shiny Jaguar parked in it. While my wfe got even madder, I nearly laughed my head off for about five miles... which was about how far it was to the next good old Interstate Rest Area with full, free bathrooms. Hats off to the guy!

    Kudos to the professionals in Florida.

    We can't stand for died dog paws.

    With the US $14 trillion in the hole, we need our government employees following up on these important rules.

    Omg, My mother and Father went there once. Thank God it was after they took her uterus out. I was the 7th and last child to be born into the family, obviously my brothers and sisters stretched it out and left me A LOT of room! LMAO ... True story. No lie...

    Oh Florida-
    Apparently you can kill you child and throw her in the trash and get away with it
    But you had better not paint your dog's nails pink, you're really gonna pay!
    One more reason not to visit that state again

    I live in Jacksonville and may not be a huge fan, but was born here. I will say, this cop, sounds like the one I needed help from, and the only way 2 get his attention at that time was 2 try and speed up! I had not had ANY kind of violation in over 28 yrs, but all he cared about was speed-he couldn't miss my screaming, crying 4 help 2 get this drunkem, idiot out of my car! He NEVER even shown a light into the car, it could have been anyyne with gun, knife, whatever- but as usual, ge was only interested in giving me a tx 4 250 dollars!
