Story Archives: Survey says...we are fat and stupid
|Survey says...we are fat and stupid|
It's inevitable that my home state always makes its way to the bottom of any snooty list compiling the fattest, dumbest people in the country.
The latest of these to catch my attention comes from the Trust for America's Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which ranks Louisiana as among the country's fattest states.
You might remember that the Robert Wood Foundation, with a little help from the University of Wisconsin's Population Health Institute, put Franklin Parish dead last in a survey released in April measuring healthy habits.
Other studies in recent month pick on The Bayou State for the number of undereducated people that live here.
There is really no reason to rehash the particulars of these studies, because they are all the same.
If there is one pinpointing where the fat and stupid can be found, Louisiana is bound to top the list.
