Survey SAYS…Kentucky Is Among the Nation’s Ten Unhappiest States
Do not assault the messenger. Or force feed me licorice. Or flavored milk. (Well, chocolate's okay.)
This just happened to come across my screen and I decided to click through and give it a look.
It's from a website called Fiscal Times, I believe, and it listed the 20 unhappiest states among THESE United States.
And it just so happens that our fair Commonwealth made the dubious cut.
As a matter of fact, Kentucky ranks right up there.
What's more, SIX of Kentucky's neighbors are also in the top 20. God bless the Ohio Valley, right?
It's presented as a slide show, so I didn't find any methodology. But I did see something about a well-being index, a sense of purpose, social connectedness, and health.
And, no, I'm not sure "connectedness" is a word. But it's THEIR word, not mine.
So, yeah, Kentucky makes a top ten in something other than basketball.
