Review of Terre Haute, Indiana

Disgusting Little Town
Star Rating - 4/13/2010
Terre Haute is a failed city attracting misfits that can't function in normal society or keep a steady place in life. It seems all the folks living in this dreaded town from hell have Narcissitic Personality Disorders. Each one believes they are the center of the universe, believe that everyone should always agree with them, will verbally abuse people who made simple mistakes and throw tantrums for almost no reason at all. They talk about themselves in glowing terms even when they have been caught doing ugly, or even illegal deeds, continuously bragging about how great and wonderful they are, and will cross the line into deviant and sometimes criminal behavior in order to win the point.

They lure you into their town with promises of hope and happiness. The extend their hand to help but if you accept their offer you instantly become a worthless piece of flesh.

All the major factories have let Terre Haute, landlords rent houses with condemned signed still stuck to the doors, and you can't trust anyone. The town was built on deception and has never changed. The population contiunes to decline and businesses continue to close their doors and move away. The town smells to high heaven (heck Steve Martin called Terre Haute 'the armpit of America') and the Indianapolis Newspaper referred to Terre Haute as the 'city of stagnation'.

Terre Haute is not a happy town and the people in Terre Haute are miserable. The problem with the people is they can't see it. Most of them has never stepped foot outside Terre Haute and doesn't have a clue how the world really works. Terre Haute's news station reported suicide stats in Terre Haute are higher than the number of people killed in car accidents in and around the city in a years time. That goes a long way in telling someone just how sad the town and its people really are.

Stay away if you can. There's a reason why the population in Terre Haute is declining, why people are killing themselves, and why businesses are packing up and leaving the evil little town.
