Coincidence? I think not.

800px-newborn_checkupVermont apparently has the nation’s second lowest birth rate. Vermont also has the nation’s lowest premature birth rate and was the only state to get a “B” grade on the recent March of Dimes Premature Birth Report Card (no state got an “A”). That is to say, we have fewer babies than others, but the babies we do have, we carry to term. It’s too bad there aren’t more Vermonters in the making — I happen to like Vermonters an awful lot.
