    I’m happy to see that Minnesota is near the front of the pack, at a reasonable 12-to-1 in the possible-favorite category. But it depends– is the Mall of America on your itinerary? Because then MN would have to drop into the 100+-to-1 range.

    Is it the mall that makes people move out of Minnesota? I’ll have to ask around once I’m out there.
