Sinful Stafford?

Our most excellent religion reporter Amy Umble sent me a link to the County Sin Rankings website. It’s an amusing, straightforward and well-designed site, although I would take the information with a large grain of salt. This is what the site has to say:

“This website was created in good fun. We don’t really think your county is greedy or slothful. Our goal was show that data can be amusing and engaging while promoting good public health policy. We relied on public data from, but we created our website independently from that initiative and received no funding nor counsel from that project’s sponsors.”

At any rate, Stafford looks good – play around with it and compare it to neighboring localities. To feel even better about Stafford, compare it to Milwaukee County. No offense, Milwaukee.
