Count such articles tend to look at broad averages - a very dangerous way to make predictions. You mention Maryland's crime rate - don't have any argument (or agreement) with the figures. But I assure you there are many places in Maryland where crime is not a concern. Regarding crime, I suspect the rate is based on # of crimes and # of people. Given Maryland has two very densely populated areas (DC and Baltimore) any characteristic in those areas will dominate the averages. Regarding temperatures - if a person is used to living in FL or VT they would find moving to the other really nasty from a weather point of view. That said, most folks spend most hours inside.
