We folks in the south are pretty accustomed to being dead last in so many categories, so it came as a breath of fresh air that three southern states where Vermilion Cousins reside, Louisiana included, came in among the top dozen states in something.

Louisiana, Alabama and Georgia came in 3, 11 and 12, respectively in a ranking of the most dangerous states in which to live.

Other states where VC’s reside and their rakings are: California, 15; Illinois, 20; Massachusetts, 30; Mississippi, 23; New York, 36; North Carolina, 18; and Texas, 16.

The ranking is published by CQ Press every year for use by policy and law makers. It is based on a composite of serious crime rankings.
