Lists are apparently all the rage these days — enough for them to pop up as consistent tags on Curbed NOLA and something we definitely take notice of if it includes our fair city. As the year slowly ends, more and more lists are popping up ranking cities on bizarro algorithms and whimsy, such as yesterday's Cities Index that ranked New Orleans as the seventh most inspiring metro in the world. This time, New Orleans is sitting pretty as the sexiest city in Louisiana, so says Movoto. After you see that their ranking is dependent on adult stores and entertainment as well as strip clubs, massage parlors, and hotels for some anonymous dalliances, everything starts to make a little more sense. No wonder so many shady civic folks get caught in compromising positions on Tulane Ave and Airline Highway.
