I love my city, but the majority of the people here seem sad, distant and depressed. Which cities / states have the highest concentration of life loving, genuinely warm happy people?

Texas, almost anywhere, I'd say. People are generally positive, outgoing, polite, and friendly. I think it's all the sun. Good thread! I'll be interested to see the responses.

Probably smaller cities with a lot of sunlight and low poverty rates.

The people in Austin are the happiest I've seen anywhere.

Now now now dorado0359, surely you must remember the old saying that money can't buy happiness? Although given George Bush is in office now, I would say that the wealthier states probably are the happiest

This is what happens when you allow stupid people to run amok unsupervised. Absolutely tragic. I don't know what might have been more traumatizing to that poor child---being hit by a car or seeing a man being beaten to a bloody pulp right next to him. I guess the people in Austin can stop bragging now about how much "better" their city is than everywhere else in Texas; you have your fair share of societal ills as well.
