San Antonio is number two twice

The Alamo City has the distinction of reaching number two on two different lists. The first one I am dubious about:

"San Antonio Ranked 2nd in Texas Hate Crimes" (from WOAI)

More and more people are becoming victims of hate crimes according to an FBI report released Tuesday.

...

The FBI has San Antonio ranked second in the state for the most hate crimes in 2006. That's nine more hate crimes in San Antonio in 2006, than in 2005.

FBI stats site is here.


The second one I can definitely believe:

"S.A. allergies among nation's worst" (from the Express-News)
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America has ranked Austin and San Antonio as the worst and second-worst cities in the nation, respectively, for fall allergy sufferers. Oklahoma City, Lakeland, Fla., and Orlando, Fla., round out the top 5.
Stupid ragweed, cedar pollen, oak pollen, etc.
