Dumb, Dumber, Dumbest

According to Smartest State 2002-2003, my life has been in a downward spiral from the start.

"METHODOLOGY--The Smartest State designation is awarded based on 21 factors chosen from Morgan Quitno’s new annual reference book, Education State Rankings, 2002-2003. These factors reflect a strong commitment to students and teachers, an emphasis on excellence in the classroom and support of safe, well-run public schools."

I was born in Connecticut (#1), went to college and worked in Massachusetts (#7), to grad school in New York (#26) and spent the last 22 years in California (#29). At least my fall is decelerating. At this pace, I should be be hailing my Maker from Oklahoma.

Or maybe my cosmic purpose in life is to nudge my adopted state to the #1 spot. Works for me.
