I find this surprising given our elected officials records including a Governor and several Mayors of major cities. Jay

This explains why I'm always so shocked when I go back home to TX. I knew CT was fairly fit and that the obesity numbers you always see for the state didn't seem to match up with what I saw in Ffld County.

The obesity figure for CT total is something like 22%, and I definitely do not see that level of obesity in Fairfield County and always thought that seemed high.

Yeah - it's too high but it's the second lowest in the country believe it or not (behind Colorado).

You can only image what other states are like... Michigan is the most corrupted, that is not suprising.
