The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

We're not as think as you drunk we are

Men's Health magazine, tossing together a salad of disparate data bits, has come up with a list of the Least Sloshed Cities in the US, and at the top are Montgomery, Alabama; Yonkers, New York; and Hialeah, Florida. (I assume this data got mined before Florida became the hurricane capital of the solar system.) All these towns scored A-plus on a combination of DWI arrest rates, alcohol-related traffic deaths, and mortality rates for various ethanol-related liver diseases.

Scoring an F were New Orleans, Spokane, Kansas City, Albuquerque, Anchorage, El Paso, and worst of all, Denver. (Must be those Rocky Mountain Blogger Bashes.) Here in the Okay City, we're tied (with Seattle) for 82nd out of 101, with a solid D.

I think this calls for a drink.

How's this for coincidence?

Hmmm. Since I scarcely drink at all, I wonder how low we'd fall in the ratings if I moved out - or started.

(Nice seeing you, Andy.)

D for booze, but apparently at least one Culkin thinks it's a good place for drugs..
