Defying The Odds...

I just saw a report on Yahoo that lists my hometown as the 3rd "Smokiest Area" in the country. Nearly 28% of the people in the area are current smokers. In addition, the same area contains the nation's fattest city, the most dangerous stretch of interstate, and one of the highest cancer rates. I never realized it growing up, but I was an at risk youth. I wonder if I could get a check from the government? Nonetheless, like Chuck Woolery, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Joe Boyd, I too will rise above the hazardous circumstance of my youth to success.
