It was weird for me to see the city referred to as "Saint Louis".  In my 40 years I have never seen it referred to as anything other then "St. Louis" which although is pronounced the same, I had never thought of as abbreviated.  It just looked so odd to me it caught my attention.

There's something seriously wrong with that list if they think San Jose is the most affordable place to raise a family. And San Francisco?!!! I think some data input clerk had a little fun.
