Hard to believe that Rochester's arts, culture, and leisure is 10% or more worse than New York state as a whole.

Remember, NYC is included in NYS. They have way more in terms of museums, theaters, etc than the rest of the state.

A couple of things stood out to me. One being the infant mortality rate. I was just speaking to someone who works at several hospitals who is a L&D nurse. She said there are many Amish and Mennonites who who deliver stillborn babies and babies who die soon after birth and it's because they don't have prenatal care. The babies are delivered at home by members of their community and the mom is only brought to the hospital when something severe has happened. She said she sees this happen at least once a month.

The lead doesn't surprise me because of the age of the homes in the area. And many have renters in them so the owner's may not be taking care of things. When I say landlord's I'm also including the cities who have low income housing. Often times, those places aren't maintained at all unfortunately.

We're less religious out here. And that's a negative how? In the grand scheme of life, what does it matter? If you are religious, you'll find people who believe as you and if you're not religious, you're fine.

For all but 2 school topics, the area is better off than the rest of the state. Heck, they even make it sound like those collecting Social Security are a negative! Sure, let's been mean to the older folks who worked and paid into the system who are now collecting that small check every month.

I'll sleep just fine tonight. Most of these things on this list don't really impact my life one way or another. I'm happy where I am.
