Cheer Up, Indiana!


In this recent ranking of the happiest US states, it seems that Indiana is ranked 47 overall. Only Michigan (no surprise), New Jersey (the armpit of america), Connecticut (where?) and New York (cabbies are surprisingly sad) ranked worse than we did.

Oddly, Louisiana is ranked the happiest state. Maybe it’s because of all the new beach front property. Ouch… sorry
