Yesterday I was bored, this happens to me when there’s no more football games on, so I took a walk to our local convenient store to pick up the newspaper, as my luck we have it, the only one left was the New York Post (I didn’t think so many people still purchased the local newspapers the old fashion way.)
Anyway, here’s some interesting triva from the Post, some of it pertaining to Massachusetts:
Top Amercan family travel destinations
1. Times Square – 37 million
2. Las Vegas – 29 million
3. National Mall DC – 25 million
4. Boston Massachusetts Faneuil Hall – 19 million
Education top states with college degrees
1. Massachusetts – 49.6%
2. Connecticut – 46.6%
3. New Hampshire – 46%
Interesting the top three were all in New England.
Of the 1.5 million students who took the SAT last year, only 297 obtained a perfect score of 2400.
