For the seventh year in a row, Mississippi has earned the distinction of fattest state.

I've eatten with Mississippians before, and one thing I noticed is that they drink sodas like its water! I mainly drink UNSWEET green tea, sometimes with a lemon added, and everytime I ask for a tea in Mississippi they automatically put sugar in it - so much sugar is added that they might as well had given me syrup to drink. What is it with Mississippi and their sodas and syrupy tea?

Because sugar tastes good? When you ask for a tea, you aren't specifying sweet or unsweet, that's not their fault.

Stay in Napa.
