WSJ: “Violent crime in Los Angeles hit its lowest level in more than half a century last year, one of a growing number of U.S. cities reporting its streets were remarkably safe in 2009. Washington, D.C., finished the year with 143 killings, the lowest tally in the nation’s capital since 1966. San Francisco reported 45 homicides last year, its lowest in 48 years. New York, Chicago, Boston and Dallas also reported dramatic year-over-year declines in 2009 compared with 2008.”
