A list of the most sinful cities in America names St. Louis as the true Sin City.

Real estate blog Movoto compiled the list using the Seven Deadly Sins.

The sin scores were compiled using the following metrics:

Strip clubs per capita (Lust)

Cosmetic surgeons per capita (Pride)

Violent crime per year per 1,000 residents (Wrath)

Theft per year per 1,000 residents (Envy)

Percentage of disposable income given to charity each year (Greed)

Percentage of obese residents (Gluttony)

Percentage of physically inactive residents (Sloth)

St. Louis finished in the top three of three sins, Wrath, Envy, and Sloth.

Surprisingly, Las Vegas was listed as the 10th most sinful city.

 

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Prospects of a strike involving union workers at Patriot Coal Corp. are intensifying after a bankruptcy judge signed off on the company's push to abandon its labor agreement with the miners.

Bargaining between the United Mine Workers of America and St. Louis-based Patriot has taken a break, with the company empowered by the judge's May 29 ruling.

That decision allows Patriot to make deep cuts to benefits for thousands of retirees, while also altering its labor deal involving existing employees.

The union and the company say they are negotiating in good faith, though the union says what's on the table right now may be sent to the membership for consideration of whether a strike is in order.

Patriot counters that a walkout could force it to liquidate.
