so apparently there is a new study out ranking states by the percentage of people in them who admit to being stressed or depressed at least fourteen days out of every month. and apparently my state, which has one of the highest unemployment rates and lowest standard of living rates in the country comes in at number six on the list with a little over ten percent of our population admitting to feeling stressed and/or depressed.

oh, really? our unemployment rate is currently over twelve percent headed for over thirty percent by the optimistic predictions of the folks at u of m when gm and/or chrysler hits bankruptcy court for their 'cushioned' or 'controlled' or whatever it is they call it bankruptcy and reorganizing. the state has been hemorrhaging jobs forever, taking the tax base with it and the local school district, my employer, claims to be facing a two million dollar deficit this year alone. that's soon projected to be seven million dollars if something doesn't change.

and only a little over ten percent of our population feels stressed and/or depressed? seriously? cuz i'm stress/depressed and i still have my job even though i know i'll have to take wage cuts/freeze/benefits loss as soon as the new contract is negotiated.

i'd love to meet the happy little bunnies hopping around the state. seriously. cuz i want their drugs.
