An odd coincidence. From a mental health perspective, the ten most miserable states in the US are also among the most Republican and zealously Christian. With friends like Gingrich and Jesus ...
I'm shocked that my state, Louisiana, isn't on there. It's about as zealously Christian as a state can get! It ranked as the #1 worst place for atheists to live on some survey I saw a few weeks ago. Plus, our Republican creationist exorcist governor enjoys destroying education by cutting funding repeatedly. Talk about depressing!
Cheer up, I'm sure you were close, probably #11. Check out our Gov. Rick Scott here in Florida.
Yeah, he & Jindal are two of a kind!
Maybe Mardi Gras wrecked Louisiana's depression ranking?
Dunno. Personally, I find roadblocks, traffic jams, lack of parking, and thousands of drunk people all in one spot pretty depressing!
