Lowest zip code is Tinker Air Force Base and the highest is an area of mostly rich people.

Well, shuck me gently and call me Cornelia. Everybody thinks Oklahoma is flat and dull, like Belgium. But it can really be quite stupid, evil and unequal as well.

Like Belgium.

I don't mean to just pick on Belgium. A lot of countries, states and provinces are just as bad as Belgium, even in countries where they most laugh at Belgium. Even in Belgium, where most of the Belgian jokes are written and most of the French Humour as well.

Nobody laughs at Belgian jokes more than the Belgians. Nobody even thinks of Belgium for weeks and months at a time.

That's because Belgium doesn't exist. You're just repeating a lie created by the One World Government

This is just a lot of self-sorting into certain areas by socio-economic status. The article makes it sound like certain areas are just tainted.

Has nothing to do with region.  Wealthy people live longer than poor people, on average.

When there a religion tells people "blessed be the poor" and "the meek shall inherit the earth" and basically promises them that the more they suffer on earth, the greater their reward in heaven it is kind of hard to say it has nothing to do with religion.

I think it is positive that this survey is regularly taken, the local health department is paying attention to citizen health and at least discussions for improvement are taking place.

With regard to newsworthiness, there is such an overload of "news" globally that these local, long term human condition concerns tend to be pushed out of mind.  Out of mind when they are really of greater effect closer at grasp for the locality than all the other constant noise.
