A state that is the poorest in the nation yet the 3rd least stressed has something figured out. Then again, they're the 3rd least happy. They've learned to sustain their suffering economy by turning catfish into an aquacultural cash crop. Since they still had an active interest in secession until the 1980s, it makes me think they're hiding something the rest of us would want.
Prohibition was federally repealed in 1933 and 3/4 of the nation ratified the 21st Amendment within a year. Mississippi didn't do so until 33 years later. C'mon, if they didn't need booze down there then something else was cooking in their kitchen. The entire Counterculture of the '60s could have originated in Ole Miss.
Please note that in the time taken to compose this post, I simultaneously booked flights to Jackson. Johnny Cash sure liked to get after it, and claims to have preferred doing so in that town. Heck, they used to call it the Gold Coast. Anyone else coming?

Wow i almost fell of my chair reading this... not due to laughing but this was everyones chance to bash jersey- or at least tell it like it is so we know how we can change... but no one 'took the bait'!!!
I live in jersey... and dont have much to say about it.... except PB&J - he is first class... seriously...
Now, I'm not in some drama with SUP. I am not at odds with him. Though I think he's sore and is trying to get me in trouble. I think he's trying to tie me in with a horrid character of yesteryear in hopes it will tarnish my image and lead to my dismissal.
However, Paddington Jetty Bear(it's ok, Koki, I'm from London, via Peru, and we Brits can refer to ourselves in the 3rd person) is a moral and upstanding citizen, whose only crime is telling it like it is. Erock, I'll help you with your political views in September. I hold a "reeducation camp" every September.
Yeah Spicoli, if surfing was a sport we'd have to wear cups, right?
Anyways.....THIS WAS NOT SOME TRAP TO GET PEOPLE TO INSULT NEW JERSEY MERELY SO I, AND OTHER TANNERS WITH STEROID PROBLEMS, COULD ATTACK BACK.
I was sincerely axing what people really think of New Jersey and its personages. What you really think, not what you think after some Jersey guy just busted on your state's waves ...........
I actually like hearing what people think of different parts of the country without all of the venom. Criticisms are fine, but do it in a mannerly fashion.
Thank you and good day, sirs.

Meh, there's jerks everywhere--as well as nice folks.
The only thing I don't get is people from farther North saying that Southerners are so much more racist. It's simply not true. Some Southerners may let the racist flag fly a little higher and without remorse, but I've met plenty of Northerners who are just as, if not more, racist than the people they denigrate as such.
For one: Connecticut is more segregated than most Southern states, it just isn't so through law....

That's dead on, if you drive through New Haven you'll go from the Yale campus full of the elite and in a matter of two blocks you're in the hood. Same thing around east rock...highly affluent community to third world country in a matter of 2 or 3 blocks.
