I have driven through Kansas multiple times to get to Colorado from St Louis to go skiing and have been pulled over for speeding multiple times. No way the Kansas cops get my vote.

These states suck, but Kansas sucks more. At least Arkansas has a Hot Springs and Little Rock isn't such a bad town. Now that William Burroughs is dead, there is literally nothing in Kansas. It could disappear tomorrow and I don't think anyone would notice.

My suggestion for Kansas: We remake it into the nation's junkyard. Any waste, toxic or otherwise, heads there to die. Now that's some Intelligent Design.
