I need a script that will scrape and save the information in an xml file. Only the United States "Free" section needs to be scraped and I need to ability to specify the US city (e.g. chicago), area (e.g. sox) and neighborhood (neighborhood should be optional since most cities don't offer this; see "sf bayarea", choose "sby", click "free" and notice the neighborhood dropdown).

Here's the list of information that is needed from the scrape:

URL of Post
URL(s) of photos (if available)
Title of Post
"Reply to" Email Address
Post Description
Date Posted

This script can be coded in Python (preferred) or Ruby
