A recent list of the most sinful cities in the USA included 2 from Texas and two from the land of enchantment. One of NM's is right next door to El Paso.

The annual "Most Sinful Cities In America" list is out and Texas and New Mexico both made it. New Mexico didn't make the top 10 but Texas did ... twice.

One city in Texas damn near took the number 1 spot but fell a little short of the original "Sin City", Las Vegas, Nevada.

To determine the most sinful cities in America, WalletHub compared 182 cities — including the 150 most populated U.S. cities, plus at least two of the most populated cities in each state — across seven key dimensions: 1) Anger & Hatred, 2) Jealousy, 3) Excesses & Vices, 4) Greed, 5) Lust, 6) Vanity and 7) Laziness. - wallethub
