The best states for an early retirement - AOL

Saw this article and I was surprised they said Kentucky was the best state for early retirement.

Oh, I am not surprised at all - many or most retirees don't pay state income tax (You only have to pay tax on
the first $45,000 or $50, 000 income that you receive per year...or that is at least how it use to be.) The cost of
living is relatively low here compared to most of the other states. And if you get bored -after a certain age you can go to college for free. (If there is room in the class...my Dad did that - he had already done college, but this was for fun, and he felt like it helped keep his mind sharp - he loved it.)

Kentucky also does not tax food or prescription medicine.

"From the rolling crests of the Cumberland Mountains to the lush fields of the Bluegrass Region, Kentucky can be a great place to spend an extended retirement."
Excuse me if I'm wrong, but I thought a good bit of the state of Kentucky goes way way past the Bluegrass Region.
