The Ghetto'ist town on earth. The average life expectancy is about 6 months. Our beautiful downtown includes the longest running post office in America. Also, there is a hair salon and some stupid yoga place. About 4 years ago it almost burnt to the ground, good thing it did not because it should be the capital.
If you go to thornton, you better watch your back, or else you wont live long son.
