Everyone is going to have their own opinion but when I think about people from the state of Texas two things come to mind, they work hard and are intelligent. Now we all know there are exceptions to every rule but there are millions of hard-working Texans that go to work each day just trying to provide for their families. But I was a little shocked when I heard about a recent survey that said when looking at IQ scores in all U.S. states Texas ranked almost last, that just doesn’t seem correct to me.
