County Health Rankings is a site that allows users to view and compare counties on key indicators of health. I'll excuse the fact that they overlooked reference to the parishes of the great State of Louisiana, because this is such a wonderful resources.
I noticed my tri-county area seems to have a similar ranking and attribute the lead by San Luis Obispo to it's beauty and wide open spaces. Next I'll check out the parishes of my youth, but I have to admit I'm a little afraid of what I might see. Hopefully, Governor Jindal is right and I'll be wrong!
