Survey: Happy states have high suicide rates
By RANDOLPH E. SCHMID
AP Science Writer
April 25, 2011WASHINGTON (AP) -- Does misery really love company?

An intriguing new study suggests that may be the case.
The surprising result: The happiest places sometimes also have the highest suicide rates.

"Discontented people in a happy place may feel particularly harshly treated by life," suggested Andrew Oswald of the University of Warwick in England.

Or, put another way by co-author Stephen Wu of Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y., those surrounded by unhappy people may not feel so bad for themselves.

But Wu urged caution in drawing conclusions, saying: "I don't think that means if you are unhappy you should be around others who are unhappy."

Well, Wu boo hoo.
While we are here, we can do the best we able to do with life or pale?

[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0327162/]The Stepford Wives (2004)[/url] was filmed where a cousin lives in "Bedminster, New Jersey, USA" .

Quick search for "Bedminster, New Jersey, USA, suicide rates" is inconclusive.

I'll have to ask.
