:: Baton Rouge Business Report :: Daily Report AM (http://www.businessreport.com/archives/daily-report/2009/jul/09/1073/ - broken link)

"A new report says while Louisiana continues to rank high for average consumer credit risk, it was the only state to see a drop from the end of 2008 to the start of this year....."

We're riding out this nasty recession just fine.

What amazes me about the article is that a 0.03% drop seems to the author as something to get excited about. AND, it seems to me that since the index number for the state with the highest risk is 166.45 and the lowest comes in at 82.02 then Louisiana's index at 153.84 places it well above the median, and, actually, not that much lower than the top 6 states listed. I tried to google the Transunion list but did not find it specifically. But, hey, this IS one of the few lists where we don't rank at or near the top of something bad, so that's saying something.

WIth all due respect, is there ANYTHING about Baton Rouge and Louisiana you like ? NO, we're not a boomtown, but we're not making the news in a bad way like we did in the 1980s.

Thank you. One of the main problems in this state and this town are people like this who refuse to have a good outlook no matter what happens. If we woke up and Louisiana was paradise, they would still put down on it every chance they get.
