Hmmm, apparently I'm a nerd and like to read books at the library. Come to think of it, I do have a library card in 5 different states.

Chicago was recently listed as having the worst traffic congestion in the country, and I don't think any other state can match our record of three consecutive governors being convicted of felonies for offenses performed while in office. So evidently we're good at being bad while stuck in traffic.

Colorado has the highest cocaine usage? Once again, I have the nagging fear that other people are having more fun than me.

The Good: Highest income sounds great but they don't factor in the higher cost of living here.Yes we make more, but we also have to spend more to live. Housing, food, fuel, taxes, etc. They giveth and they taketh away.

The Bad: Glad I'm faithfully married and don't have to worry too much about this.

Here in Colorado I'm not into the drugs personally, but I did ride my bike to work today. (Western Colorado is not getting the deep freeze today that Denver is.)

I used to live in Wyoming. Yes the air is wonderful. I thought the drivers there were better than in the crazies in Colorado. Maybe there were just less of them.

I grew up in Massachusetts. Yes, Masshole drivers. I went to college in Colorado though.

There came a mighty wind, stupid, but mighty, that smelled of tacos and beer and gunpowder and trucks.

Interesting. Colorado's best and worst is low obesity and high cocaine use. Correlation?

Having spent two hours in a Chicago parking lot (labeled I90) at two AM listening to the cars toot "Shave and a haircut", I can attest to this.
