Louisiana ranked second worst state to live in on new list

In a new list by CNBC ranking “America’s worst states to live in 2017,” our state didn’t do so hot.

Louisiana came in at No. 2 on the list, which uses cost of living, education and other factors to determine each state’s spot.

“Heavenly beignets, deep-fried with a generous topping of powdered sugar,” CNBC said about the Bayou State. “An oyster po’ boy dressed with lots of mayo. Crawfish étouffée with buttery sauce, and rich bananas Foster for dessert. Okay, those are some of the good things about Louisiana’s quality of life.
