U.S. of Shame

We regularly post statistics showing Kentucky near the bottom of some unsavory list, but the comedic blog Pleated Jeans proves that every state ranks dead last in at least one category.

The map shows that whether its suicides in Alaska, unemployment in Michigan or ugliness in North Dakota, every place needs improvement. The worst thing about the commonwealth? You guessed it, most cancer deaths at 227 per 100,000 people in large part due to  having the highest rate of tobacco smokers at 25.6 percent.
