Not so much the top of the class

I’ve lived in California for six years. It’s no secret that I haven’t liked living here for any of those years, from the first day when a man was shot two blocks from my apartment through the three times that my car has been stolen. When I read today that California is ranked the 47th (out of 50, for you 47th placers) smartest state in the country, I wasn’t sure how to feel. On the one hand, I feel vindicated in my opinions: the root cause for the unremittingly terrible customer service and the mind-numbingly slow pace has been ferreted out! On the other hand, I live here now and am presumably counted in that statistic, so what does that say about me?

In other news, Vermont came out #1 but David Mamet lives there, so they have an unfair advantage. Massachusetts, my home state, is #2, so perhaps they’ll take me back someday if I study up a bit.

Or maybe I’m just taking this whole thing way too personally…
