According to the Huffington Post yesterday, "the most water-consuming states are those suffering from drought." This is not an enlightening statement--it should be blatantly obvious. I don't think I should need to say more, but I will anyway.
One could also claim that the states that do the most grocery shopping are those that receive the least manna from heaven; or that the countries that spend the most private money on internet service are those that don't have government-provided internet service. If you need something and it isn't provided to you, you're more likely to spend money and/or time trying to acquire it. Why does this need a news article?
