I think Huntsville has one of the highest percentages of PhD's in the country (lots of rocket scientists). Been that way since the 1950s.

By choice, I now limit my choice of residences to Right to Work states; looking at retirement in Tennessee.

If AR wanted to pick on the fact that Alabama and Mississippi are two most obese states in the Country; I would have had to agree. I can tell you the reason in two words - "sweet tea." Probably adds 10 lbs a year.
