  1. So what you’re telling me is the Four Corners is the best spot in America if you want a snort, a shot, a wank and to be left alone after.

  2. Isn’t “weakest gov’t influence” something to be proud of? Heck, I’d suggest putting that as a state slogan on license plates.

    • I agree. I’d think that it must have been a “progressive” that put this map together except for the fact that some things are actually seen as a vice.

    • Everyone depends on something from the government. A paved road system, public education, food safety, environmental protection (drinking water supply, etc), hospital sanitation requirements, safety standards for building construction…list goes on and on. If the state government is rated low in those areas, it can be a dangerous place to be in!

      • “Weakest influence” doesn’t mean “no influence”. If the gov’t stuck to paving roads, public education, food safety, etc, it wouldn’t be so bad. But I’m all for civil liberties. In some cities in CA where I live, it’s illegal not to smoke a regular cigarette inside your own home. I’d rather have the problems brought on by too much freedom than the problems of not having enough…

  3. So every state except Minnesota has something to be ashamed of that is influenced by people. Does that mean that Minnesota is the best state for everything except weather? And does “worse” for tornados mean that they get the most or that they don’t get any?

    • There’s more truth to that than you realize. It didn’t quite put me in the poor house but it did cost about twice as much as I collected, so there will be a slight increase in the price this year.
