    9 of the healthiest are in the West...

    It's all a conspiracy.

    Detroit
    Philadelphia
    St. Louis

    Columbus, Ohio

    Ummmmmmm, they're right. Folks today DON'T know their geography.

    Houston, St. Louis and Dallas are on the west side of the Mississippi. ;)

    To me, East means East coast. I didn't know the template was East of Mississippi?

    Well, Steve IS in LA, so just about everything is East for him. ;)

    I know where Houston and Dallas are...I was excepting Houston from the list, because it's on the western side of the Mississippi. And I'd overlooked Dallas.

    But St. Lou? Damn, who cares! :haha:

    We all are products of our enviroment! Out West most of us who are natives, regardless of how much we have traveled think of East as anything five hundred of miles east of the Rockies.

    Yup, East is anything on the other side of the Rockies. It is relative you see.;) ANd since we are on the subject. Southern California starts at Sacramento. Anything south of Sacramento is Souther California.

    And anything elected to Sacramento is generally in the intellectual realm of roadkill.

    Uhhhhhhhhhhhh, so what does that say about the voters?

    Ditto. A lot of the people showing up to vote are products of this state's education system.
