SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Puerto Ricans faced a fundamental question on Election Day: Should they change their ties with the United States?
Lost in the election day enthusiasm throught much of the United Statees was coverage about Puerto Rico. A 'non-binding referendum' was on the ballot to reconsider the 114-relationship with the United States as a territory. 54% voted for a change, while 46% favored the status quo. The second question was asking how to change that relationship: 61% voted for statehood, 33% endorsed a sovereign free association, and 5% for independence. President Obama has gone on record stating that he'll support the will of a clear majority. We'll see what this means, but we are a lot closer to 51 states than we've ever been before. For more information, see Matt Rosenberg's assessment.
Every U.S. state is No. 1 in some environmental category ... and No. 50 in another.

SV- Very intersting map.I was extremely suprised that Maryland of all places has the worst access to clean water seeing as it's on the coast. But, even though I'm not from there, I'm very proud of Alabama. As one of the "southern states" a common sterotype is having drunken rednecks/hillbillies everywhere... Who woulda thunk it?
