Top five Louisiana... Imagine that. Home of the poorly educated, most welfare users, illegitimate births....It's the good ole boy syndrome. People are either related to each other some way or go back generations where their families have known each other forever. People are very unwilling to help others. Still very racially prejudice. New corporations do not stand a chance of making it in this area.

Himeytown dead last. Who's surprised by that?
