The survey has been done and unless you live in Washington, your state just doesn’t measure up. That’s the word anyway from U.S. News and World Report, which recently released its assessment of the best and worst states to live in. Based on a number of different factors, they dubbed the Evergreen State the top of the heap, followed by New Hampshire, Minnesota, Utah and Vermont. And what are the worst states to live in? The bottom five, in descending order, are New Mexico, West Virginia, Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana. The Pelican State came in dead last in three of the eight categories, and at 48-49 in three others. Oh well, at least the bottom three have SEC football.
