My son Kevin sent me a link to a pretty funny web site depicting a map of the United States accompanied by a list of what each state is “worst” at or, generally speaking, the thing a particular state ranks the lowest in.
My initial reaction was to look at my home state, Nebraska (which, in my opinion, ranks lowest in nothing) and was a little surprised to see it has the highest murder rate of women.
Hmmm, I thought to myself. I’m from a family of all boys. I never knew!
Then, when you start looking at it closer (and, especially, when you start reading the comments posted by viewers – which you can get to by clicking the link above) you start to realize this is all not only silly, but kind of controversial. I get it. Who wants to lay claim to being from the dumbest or, worst yet, the ugliest state?
Anyway, it’s a good chuckle.
So where are you from? Go ahead, defend your home state! Post a comment!
