The list of smartest states is out:
2005-2006 Smartest State Award
I'd like to point out that New England occupies the top three spots, four out of the top five, and the lowest ranking of any New England state is just 16.
(We all knew that RI was the "most not smart" of the New Englanders.)
Also note that all NE states have positive Ratings, while the (slight) majority of the country has negative ratings.
Also note that NE occupied the top three states last year, as well.
There you have it people.
Yes, we are smarter than you. Yes, we always knew this. Yes, we look down on you.
