    That's quite an optimistic way of looking at things. If you ever want to see the Native American political empowerment that has been given to those people, take a little trip to the Res and see how much it is like a 3rd world country and how dirt poor people are there. Also, pay close attention to the plethora of crosses on the side of the roads on the Res. that are a tribute to the countless drunk driving deaths.

    Washington surprises me too. I live there. I am certainly going to look at my neighbors differnetly from now on.

    As to the res, third world country doesn't begin to cover it. I wish I had one idea on how to help the people who live there, on any res. I am sure there are others who do tho.

    If you actually click on the link and get to the article it'll show you specifically how they reached those conclusions. I had a hard time believing Maryland had the highest AIDS rate too.

    Perhaps for the native population. I had by breakfast at 8 AM - 9 at the latest.

    My state, North Carolina, got a fail for teacher's salary. The best part: they just had to lay off thousands of teachers because they could not afford them!

    I literally have no idea where my tax dollars are going. Perhaps it is because Wachovia exploded.

    It's why we have such a low obesity rate, according to the second map.

    Ha. I never would have picked up on that until you said it.

    And MA should have the highest college grad count, we only have a million schools in the state.
