No longer the worst state in the union

The other day, my brother emailed me,

How are things in the worst state in the union?
He was referring, of course, to the fact that I live in Mississippi, generally disdained as the poorest, fattest, unhealthiest, least educated state in the Union.

It just so happens that I received my state tax refund in the mail yesterday. Whatever criticism people may choose to level at Mississippi—much of it merited—we're apparently better governed than California or Kansas!

Of course, now that I've written this, our governors in Jackson will prove us wrong…
