Bratty gossip site Gawker is counting down the 50 Worst States in America and last week named Minnesota the 45th Worst.That actually makes us the 6th Best, which isn't half bad, except that it's the blog equivalent of "damning with faint praise."Big surprise: Gawker chose New York as the Best--relying on nepotism over logic and reminding us of all the times the Yankees beat the Twins.But Gawker's evaluation was clearly performed by someone who never actually visited Minnesota--at best, they shopped at Mall of America during a layover between LA and NYC. Those of us who live here can tell you quite a few more advantages to living in flyover country (including: "no earthquakes").Here are 50 Reasons Minnesota is the Best State in America.
