Don't envy us

It's the snow-shoveling:
West Virginia and Kentucky have the nation's highest levels of heart disease and Colorado has the lowest, according to a first-of-its-kind study released by U.S. health officials today.

The new research is the first to look at what percentage of people in each state live with or have survived heart attacks and certain other cardiac problems.

It found that states in the Southeast and Southwest were heart disease leaders. Meanwhile, Colorado and the District of Columbia had the lowest percentages.
My heart swells with pride--at least, I think it's pride.
