    I would be happy to live in Hawaii.

    I wonder if there is some rich novelist that has a job opening for a head of security at his Hawaii estate.

    I love it! This was reported in AIHP — America’s Health Insurance Plans. It clearly shows how health and well-being varies from region to region. This comes from the very same people who wonder why medical treatment and outcomes cannot be uniform from sea to shining sea. They don’t like that physicians in New Hampshire have lower C-section rates, for example, than physicians in McAllen, Texas. Why, they ask, can those McAllen docs not hold back like the New Hampshire docs — and save us money. (Actually, bad example — C-sections are now reimbursed at about the same rates as a normal delivery. But you get my drift. Same with high cholesterol, diabetes, asthma, etc.) The answer, I want to scream, is that populations vary! You have higher immigrant populations in some areas, a higher concentration of overweight smokers in others. And now here’s proof you have different mental outlooks.

    WoW! People are allot happier in Dallas than Ft. Worth. But those people southeast of Fair Park are pretty unhappy. It looks like the map is divided into Congressional districts. Those Fair Park people should elect a better Congress people.
