Cool. I see that my state is up there, too (FL).

Not to sound deep or anything, but I really think that you're only as happy or unhappy as you want to be in your state. I guess it's all about finding the right place to sink your roots into and thrive.

I can't help but find it ironic that many of these "happiest" states are in the south. As I personally consider bible belt folks happier, there is also a suprising amount of violence in the south.

It's like... we are happy but will still shoot you.

Good food = happy.

Unfortunately, good food = high obesity also...

Happy...?
Perhaps, now that the "cotton kingdom" has fallen into the soil where the blood, sweat and tears of the cotton pickers still dwell...Yes, I think I can hear the happy sounds of Mississippi, or was that a moan?
