Not one comment about Colorado or Utah? Those are the two that struck me. Not that Louisiana surprised me... can't anyone take a damn penicillin shot?

Penicillin shots is how they are keeping the tally! Celebrities "discovered" Aspen so that eliminated the surprise at the Colorado and you can only "straight-lace" so much before there is a bust-out so Utah was no surprise. THAT is why no comment. My comments were at the surprise that that was the bad thing for the States I commented on. I expected something worse.

See, I wasn't expecting Utah... maybe I just want to think the best of people.

Mississippi sounds like a charming place, doesn't it?

I think Arkansas, West Virginia, and Mississippi take turns in saying, "Thank GOD for ________________!" We seem to be the lucky nominees for #1 for anything that is bad and the bottom of the pile if it is good. We make the other States feel better about themselves - and it helps keep our States from getting over-Five Bucks - ed and turned into cheek-to-jowl cities since those people do not want to live in those bad places. 

Our Eastern Panhandle has had this happen to it as it is commuting distance to DC & Baltimore.  Second homes are being built in our mountains - so bears are now being sighted in my area.

I'm just staying clear of Washington state! And Oklahoma. Some tough women in Oklahoma!

And the worst they could find about New York is a long commute to work? Maybe that's as close to utopia as we'll find...south of Canada.

Interesting article.

If Washington is the worst, does that make everyone else much better at it?

I am surprised Illinois just got ticked for robberies since Chicago (gun-free zone by the way) is the murder capital. They are even starting to play shoot-em-up in cop neighborhoods - car shot up at the end of my daughter's alley last week.

West Virginia just got ticked with heart attacks! Wow! But that is the young whippersnappers having the heart attacks. The old guys who get beyond 65 - 70 live to 90s or over 100. The generation that worked the mines (unless they died of black lung) and farmed the fields.(and did not die in a farm accident). We see a lot of obits for 95 to 105. Now even WV is getting the young ones dying by way of OD.
