We're . . . Undeveloping?

US slips in development indicies.

Are we cooked? Can Barack turn us around? Only time will tell.

Fucking Luxembourg. Fucking Norway.

The piece is full of stunners like:

"Some Americans are living anywhere from 30 to 50 years behind others when it comes to issues we all care about: health, education and standard of living.

"For example, the state human development index shows that people in last-ranked Mississippi are living 30 years behind those in first-ranked Connecticut."

Conservative probably think this is awesome.  They owe us liberals big time. They've been riding on capital we built up over decades.
