Texas, Number One With A Bullet

Despite Texans' reputation for pugnacious pride in their state, they are ranked fifth in a USA Today poll that asked the question, "Is your state one of the best to live in?" They are behind Alaska (which is one of the best states in spite of the fact that our state government is a subsidiary of Conoco-Phillips) Montana, Utah and Wyoming.
Our impression of Texan boosterism and their almost astrological faith in the Lone Star can be restored when we realize that they are ranked first when answering the question, "Is your state the best state to live in?"

    Obviously the data is flawed since Arizona is not in the top five and ALASKA is not number one! Love, Jody
