OPINION: Being at the End of the List

GLOUCESTER CITY NJ (December 28, 2023)--Sometimes being at the end of the list isn't a bad thing.  This time, New Jersey comes in near the end of the list and that is a good thing.  The list is the states with the Highest Concentration of Hate Crimes.  Here is where New Jersey and neighboring states rate: Feather_pen_ink_3_5
Number 43 - New Jersey
              39 - New York
              26 - Maryland
              24 - Vermont*
              13 - Pennsylvania
                7 - Delaware
                1 - Wyoming
* Two states that seem to be out of place are Vermont.  Senior citizens tend to think of Vermont as being populated by former peace-loving hippies along with cows, Norman Rockwell, and Grandma Moses.
The most startling state is Wyoming as number one.  Again, the stereotype of that state The Marlboro Man, horses, cattle and mountains.  What's to hate?
