MIAMI (AP) - The Miami suburb of Hialeah has earned a dubious distinction: Forbes magazine included it among America's 10 most boring cities.
The publication scoured news archives to determine which of the nation's 100 largest cities received the fewest media mentions in 2008, after being adjusted for population size.
Joining Hialeah - in no particular order - were the Phoenix bedroom communities of Mesa, Chandler and Gilbert; the Los Angeles suburb of Santa Ana; and on the outskirts of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Henderson.
Mayor Julio Robaina disputed the findings, saying: "Hialeah has more than 250,000 people. Obviously something is keeping them here."
