I found the above list over at the Cheat Sheet business section to be interesting. The article itself says that you can’t draw too many conclusions because states on this list often need money to protect the border or for military basis, among other needs. However, I do think it is strange that so many red states appear on this list. Not so much because of what it might say about the character of each state, but because many of these states also demonize the federal government.
In the van headed for a festival in Florida. Just read this list over at Stereogum, while listening to The Cure’s Faith on my headphones. If you happen to be a fan of the band this is a fun read, even if you don’t agree with it.
