West Virginia: Reversal of Fortune?

Oh, West Virginia. We feel for you. It can’t feel good to show up dead last on Forbes’ list of the best states in which to live. Word of your ranking comes on the heels of your governor’s plan to boost the state’s image. Maybe the campaign will also help brighten the spirits of residents and, eventually, lead to a better than 50th out of 50 ranking for both the emotional and physical health of residents. We know somebody has to come in last, but we look forward to seeing you move up the list. You and your people deserve better.
