Happy happy joy joy in WY and MT

From the New York Times ArtsBeat blog:
The “pursuit of happiness” map compared the ratio of arts, entertainment and recreation establishments to the total population. On this map, people in Wyoming and Montana apparently are bursting with joy. The high ratios in those states, however, are more of a result of their small populations than glee. 
Excuse me, NYT, but I'm feeling pretty gleeful right now, even though I am just one of a small cohort of Rocky Mountain residents. You will note that Southerners are a disgruntled and sour lot which probably leads to the superiority of its literature.
