Every day seems like murder here

Beware and take care when in the Hungarian city of Nyíregyháza, which is quite an extraordinarily dangerous place to be, judging from the urban audit murders etc per 1000 population per year:


That's 71.77 per year, per 1000 population. Makes '70s Beirut look like Virginia Water, doesn't it? The highest figure showing for a non-Magyar city is Athens at 0.43.

Obviously something has gone very wrong with underlying data, but it was too good a finding to pass up. More from Urban Audit if I can locate some credible data.


There's a drink in it for anyone who knows - without googling - where I got my headline from.

It's from an old blues song, but my memory is so poor these days I'll either have to listen to every blues CD I have (no bad thing) or cheat by Googling.

This can't be enough to win me a drink, so what about a commemorative bar mat from the conference?

Oh, mea maxima culpa, to describe it merely as an 'old blues song'. It's of course from 'Down the dirt road' by Charley Patton.

I’m gonna leave tomorrow, I know you don’t bid my care...

The man himself, yes. Sorry I forgot to reply earlier. I had it in mind it was from Tom Rushen.
