No. 4: South Carolina. Whatever happened to Southern hospitality? South Carolina is charged with the highest assault problem in the Most Dangerous States list; it ranks number 4 in murder, tied with Alabama.
Lots of unrest down there in the home of the Confederacy. Inbreeding still going on ever since the days of Ft. Sumter? Solid red state in every election. Home state of Strom Thurmond, racist.
I've never been to the state and see no reason to risk my life going there. I'll take cloudy, cold and snowy Ohio, thank you.
[by the way, I came across South Carolina's low ranking as my wife read me a column by Kathleen Parker on pot]
