As bragging rights go, it’s probably not going to result in a new state slogan, but the Washington Post reports that Kansas has achieved the distinction of being the nation’s median state for obesity.
Yep: That means that while half of the states had lower obesity rates than our 23.9 percent, half had higher. That’s a couple dozen states we can lord it over until the next survey — a little leverage the next time someone asks, “What’s the matter with Kansas?”
