I Live Here and I Would Not Have Guessed

I heard on the radio today that Indiana is the third highest gaming destination in the country taking the place of Mississippi.  Nevada is number one and New Jersey is number two.  No surprise there.  But Indiana is number three!?!?!?  I consider this a dubious distinction at best.

I also learned recently that Indiana leaped into the upper echelon of wind power states.   I believe that Indiana installed 900 something MW of wind power in 2009 and now has a total installed wind power of 1036 MW.  This puts Indiana at number twelve of the fifty states in installed wind power.  Only Texas installed more wind power in 2009 (Indiana was not a close second).

Indiana has the wind, the manufacturing facilities, and the grid.

That’s better than gaming!
