    BREAKING: The South Dakota Attorney General reported hitting a deer Saturday night but had actually hit and killed a man whose body wasn’t discovered until the next morning, according to the Department of Public Safety. Story coming ASAP. Then will update with info from relatives
    Textbook hit and run. If you thought a human was a deer, it means you didn't stop. Charges best be filed TODAY like they would with anyone else.

    The delay probably made sure whatever was in his system is now gone.

    Oregon GOP state senator Fred Girod was one of 11 Republicans who made headlines when they walked out of the senate – some even leaving the state – so that a quorum could not be achieved for a climate change bill. Now the wildfires have claimed his home.

    The typical American household earns $61,000 a year. Here are 15 states where the typical resident earns even less.

    The average American household earns about $61,000 per year, according to Census data.

    But the typical resident of many US states earns less than that.

    According to the US Census Bureau's 2017 data on each state's median income, 15 states are at the bottom of the list. Perhaps unsurprisingly, many of them also reached the top of the Census Bureau's list for the highest poverty rates.

    Only one New England state, Maine, makes the bottom 15, while states in Appalachia, the South, and the Midwest tend to dominate. The states with the lowest incomes tend to be clustered together geographically, and it shows just how unequally wealth is distributed across the US.

    These are the 15 states with the lowest incomes in the US.

    15. Missouri
    Median household income: $56,885

    Poverty rate: 11.3%

    Obviously if US average is X in many states it will be below X. More important are differences within states. It's not really a lot of money considering standard expenses. Also is this average or median income?

    Re: National, Regional and Local News

    I think the study is politically biased. You can clearly see what party the states that are the poorest lean towards, which, even if as you say, 50% of all states will be below the average, should be more randomized.
    Example. When I went to college, Florida was the last state to raise their drinking age to 21, Why? Because they figured out that the revenue from a 19 yo age Vs 21 yo, when taken over seasons like spring break, would bring in more money. How could they tell Reagan to Kiss Their A**? Because Florida at the time was democratic and was one of the states that has a surplus regarding their federal tax contribution: they paid more than what they got in return.
    Flash forward to today, with Florida being firmly Republican, and they need federal aid, receiving more than they can pay.
    The reality is that republican states are supported by democratic states. They somehow damage the economy. Which is the underlying assumption in the stats above.
    Face it. It's the apocalypse.
