We can do better

Rats. While Louisiana gets bragging rights for being No. 1, all Indiana can muster is to be named the country's 15th laziest state by Business Week:

Indiana, known for flat terrain and farmlands, has the nation's fourth-largest state park system . . . Despite options for boating, hiking, and swimming, residents spend slightly more time engaged in sedentary activities than the average American. We spend 8 hours and 32 minutes a day sleeping and 2 hours and 40 minutes watching TV.

Come on, we can try harder than that to do nothing! Kentucky came in at No. 6, and Michigan was 14th.
